  • Trying to find a program for a specific type of inventory management
    Not sure how large it expands to but SnipeIT has worked well for us. It's centered around IT inventory with assets, accessories, consumables, users & locations. Pretty straight forward and easy to setup on Linux, a bit more of a challenge on a Windows server but not horrible. Fit about 90% of our needs directly and the remaining 10% have been fairly easy workarounds. We only have 500 or so assets though. - Source: Reddit / 5 months ago

    Also use Snipe-IT to document your assets. - Source: Reddit / 7 months ago
