    Hi All,

    What would you guys reccomend for asset management software either free or of reasonable cost.

    Regards,

    What kind of assets? Digital? Physical? Properties? Assets within the corporation? Assets owned by corporation?

    edit: LOL. Just a thought: Do you mean like monitors, printers, desktops and laptops? We use Excel spreadsheet for that because to be honest I can't see any benefit for us to move it to SQL database as we haven't got SharePoint (yet) and I would need to write a front-end for it.

    As soon as we've got SharePoint up I think I'll move it to SharePoint.

    If you're not a huge company (and if you're cost-conscious to the point of wanting free, I'm leaning towards not) then use either Excel as recommended or, dare I say it, Access, so that you can create templates for the asset types.

    We moved from using access to SQL about 2 years ago. It's awesome - integrated in to our Intranet so I can log on as myself and update the register no matter whose desk I'm snooping around :D

    Interesting, I interviewed with a company that does asset management software, google 'right asset management' and take a look at what they offer.

    You might want to check out OCS or Sysaid too. OCS is an open source package and Sysaid has a free version that you can use for up to 100 clients.
