Good on paper. Much less in operation.
If there is any problem with inventory or with updating the app you'll be wiping the system installed on and reinstalling.
We've done this several times before chucking this.
If you are going to run it, put it on a virtual server and image the server before install so you have a somewhat easier time reinstalling Spiceworks.

I've been using Spiceworks since one if it's early Beta's. Now that it's in full release V 1.0 it's much faster, reliable, and feature rich.

If you’re a SMB this is your free network management tool.

Some features include:

Complete inventory
Help Ticket tracking
Software Compliance
In depth reporting capabilities
Support for pre-existing remote support
User accessible community knowledge base

Spiceworks is based on the web 2.0 concept and is a Google ad sense partner. The ads are unobtrusive and Spiceworks should not be labeled as Adware in a negative sense.

Free due to ads... for a small shop like mine, I can handle a side-bar of google ads (very inobtrusive).

It didn't detect most of my clients, but it did get the servers and printers... and to be able to track an asset tag, purchase date and price, installed services, applications, and hotfix levels... slick.

I do find it a little slow, but it looks promising...hopefully a bit more status monitoring will be able to get in there (toner levels on printers, etc).

It's free because it's supported by Google ads.

Interface takes some getting used to .

Requires remote administrative privileges.

It doesn't detect my wireless router or that I'm using a wireless connection.

Help topics rather limited.
