Hardware Tracking Software

At my new job they have a lot of laptops out there and out way of tracking them is though excel. I was wondering if any of you have any ideas on a good app to use to track this instead of an excel document.

SQL? Access? (insert favorite database application here)

What info from the laptop are you trying to track? You could write a WMI script (assuming you are running windows) to run at startup and write to a database (info like serial #, install date, CPU, model, memory, drive info, etc.. can all be pulled this way).

You could look at programs like WinAudit as well..

Depends on your needs..

While I assume it's over the spectrum of what you need, I currently use LanDesk which does patch management, software distribution, and hardware tracking.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
