IT Inventory Tracking and Purchasing
Posted on 2010-11-29
We are looking for a free software that will allow us to do the following:
1. Track Network Assets/Inventory (computer, printers, cell phones(?), broadband cards, etc.)
2. Asset Allocation (transfer between users)
3. Purchasing Management
We have looked in to many different programs, but nothing that we need. ManageEngine is too expensive and does too much (if a program can do such a thing). We already use SpiceWorks as our helpdesk ticket system, but the purchasing module is terribly basic. The purchasing part of Spiceworks does everything nicely, but there is no line item to the purchase, so we have to create a new purchase for each item. Each purchase has to be approved... If we purchase 20 computers and 20 monitors, we have to enter one purchase for each computer/monitor pair to allocate to a user. It seems like we should be able to enter an entire P.O. as one purchase in Spiceworks.
