Looking for a system to track equipment (in this case IT department items).

I know its a wide open question; just want to know what you use and why, cost, pros and cons on what your using, etc

Looking to purchase something for a client and want to get as many options as i can...

Thanks

Free? Spiceworks or an Excel spreadsheet that Karen from Accounting sets up. I've used both, but I prefer Spiceworks; it scans and imports handily and has a good interface, as well as plenty of support from the community.

Leaning more towards a system that would print asset tags (with bar codes preferably)

Open Source GLPI, with Fusion Inventory plugin, for example...


It is a very alive-and-well project, with many plugins:


This plugin is also very nice (tracks entities, consultancies, contracts, hourly rates, licenses, etc):


Also plugs in with OCS Inventory

Looks like GLPI is 'NIX based?

Depending on how much work you wish to do you can use Cellica Everywhere and design your own db and forms for each user type.

GLPI is Linux based, you very easy to deploy in a VM in a linux flavour of your choice.
