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.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
