Spiceworks Review

I've found inventory management to be valuable in tracking serial numbers of machines on our network, but everything on a Mac network must be manually entered.

Valuable Features

The inventory management is, and also the alerts that let me know when printers are running low on ink.

Improvements to My Organization

Instead of keeping track in a spreadsheet of serial numbers, what software is on what machine, and what machines we have, I let Spiceworks scan our network and figure it out for me.

Room for Improvement

Mac networking needs improving, as everything has to be manually entered in a Mac environment.
