I am currently using spice works to track our inventory of desktops/laptops. I use the  bios date to see the age of the computer systems, is there a way to pull something like that to find out the age of Crisco switch?

    A few different ways you can tell but unless you have CCO access or Original packaging for EVERY switch or router in question. Im not sure there is a way to run a "Batch" script for serial #'s on You can however run serial #'s w/ CCO access to tell when original product was shipped/Manufacturered, and or ordered.
