Looking for some options to manage our computer/network equipment that is a software in cloud (SAS) solution.  I am using Spiceworks, but it limits to using it while on the local network.  I keep track of equipment serial numbers, install dates, etc.

Depends on amount of work/ money you want or are willing to put in.  I use Celica DB-  I designed the access db and then designed the forms to use on my phone.  There is CI from iMobile3 for iPad. CI is a great little app that let's you enter all that info.  I lIke Celica DB anywhere because it syncs from anywhere.  You can design firms for any number of devices. Take a look at this article:  https://www.experts-exchange.com/articles/18542/Finding-a-Computer-Inventory-Application-for-Use-with-Mobile-Devices.html

I assume you have put the phrase "Asset management software" and/or "asset tracking software" into Google?

You could also look at something like Nagios which does autodiscovery of nodes, this thread oin their forum discusses asset tracking https://support.nagios.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=38648 but i suspect that most network management software does something similar
