My company would like to get some asset management going. We would like to put asset tag stickers on hardware and keep things documented. I figure the cheapest way would be some Excel spreadsheet but that seems kinda weak.

We don't need anything fancy, we are a small company with not a whole lot of assets. We don't need to do checking in/out, depreciation, etc. Basically just want to know where IT equipment is and associate it with a tag.

No points here - just wanted to give a 2nd to the Spiceworks suggestion.  It does a whole lot more, but very functional for hardware/software asset management.  Especially as it can query your domain and populate a lot of this information itself.

I gave Spiecworks another try. Personally I do not like the software, I think the interface is all over the place and just doesn't work for me. Due to the nature of our company I am for the time being going to run with a Excel spreadsheet that I can import into SharePoint. I may at some point implement an application to manage everything.
