inventory of all computers software

Hello, I am looking for some sort of inventory tracking software for a small network, It would be nice to have a program that keeps track of who has the system, name of the system and possibly specs .....  any suggestions??

SpiceWorks might be sufficient for your needs, (http://www.spiceworks.com/). It has an inventory feature that works quite well. Another great feature in this software is that it's free!

Hi,

You can use Spiceworks network tool, dowload from http://www.spiceworks.com/free-pc-network-inventory-software/.

Also you can use Lansweeper

Spiceworks has an agent based solution - alternatively, you'll need an RMM tool that supports inventorying software.  LogMeIn Pro can do this but will cost you $300 per year.

Most items that provide this do so with a monthly cost or use an agent (often both)

I already have logme central for remote management .... I didn't know it could do asset management or is this an add on?

You need pro on each system.

(So I was initially mistaken - it's $300 per year PLUS licenses for each remote system in Pro).  When they went paid only, I switched to a product called Screen Connect - doesn't cover licenses, but it's a ONE TIME payment and I run it and it does MORE than LogMeIn for slightly more money (again, ONCE).
