I couldn't see the second post on this so I apologize if someone's already mentioned this. Network Computing magazine (nwc.com) did a review of several tools about 2 weeks ago that I recommend you check out. They covered Altiris, Landesk, SMS, Zenworks, Tally Systems and a couple of others. I personally use SMS 2003 at work. The review should give you a good place to start.

Excel and other suggestions

by johnnywatt In reply to Inventory / Asset Managem ...

I've used Excel for LAN around 150 workstations. You can switch it to an Access dB if you want to incorporate it into a company Intranet for your IT department or use a software program that you purchase. How many PC's do you have? I would say anything less 150, save the company $ and continue to use Excel.

We have over 242,000 assets to be tracked, so something automated would work a wee bit better.

You can use free zCI http://zci.sf.net. It can detect a lot of things automatically, such as comptuer serial number, monitor serial number, installed software & etc.

We use WASP MobileAsset to keep track of everything. Package has the asset management software, barcode/label software and a Palm powered barcode reader. Package runs about $800. Not a perfect solution - but a huge improvement over the spreadsheets method we were using before.
