Spiceworks is a brand new network inventory tool, asset tracker, monitoring and reporting software solution. The interface is intuitive, easy to install, easy to run, easy to understand. And the price? FREE. Yes, I said free. The software is funded by ads placed within it’s web user interface. I barely noticed the ads so don’t let this deter you from trying the software.
This is a quote from their site,
“This is better than any asset inventory software I’ve seen… incredible. It saved me so much time. It’s intuitive, easy to use, UI friendly, requires minimal effort, no training, no client software, runs transparent, set and forget, generates reports that I want, alerts me of low disk space on clients, software they have installed, memory, service packs, and so much more of everything a lazy network admin would need. All of this information is elegantly organized in a very intuitive interface. You must try this before you look anywhere else”
