Re: [PLUG] Open Source IT Asset Management

Asset management? Not really sure odoo is the way to go. But I would research this link and see if it can be used like asset management. https://www.odoo.com/page/warehouse

No reason a little creativity won't make it work. As far as a bare bones asset management? Postgress. Making a web front end is cake.  If you want a dirty trick for pulling system info and seeing when they last checked in, puppet with a base install of Foreman. I have a script that would check for last check in and it wouldn't be hard to pull facts from systems. 

The biggest question I have is what is the scope of the asset management? What kind of reclamation or inventory is needed? What types of equipment?

Speaking from my manufacturing and warehousing background, all you need is a database and a barcode scanner (keyboard wedge). 90% of what you want can be done with a database and really simple programming.

I think Odoo (formerly OpenERP) has some form of asset management. Not sure if its one of the free modules though.

Does anyone have any recommendations for Open Source IT Asset Management
systems? We'd like to be able track the different assets we have and
have a check-in/check-out functionality for 'loaner' devices as well.
If it can generate bar/QR codes to put on the assets, that'd be a great
feature too.
