So you’ve heard and seen Spiceworks but what does it do for you?
Spiceworks allows you to manage “Everything IT for free” anything that is networkable you can manage for free.
SW provides you with a complete network inventory off all your networked hardware and software. It will then keep an eye on your network with its powerful network, exchange and license monitoring systems. Allowing you to quickly pull of reports about your system keeping you up-to-date with the changes that go on.
Then the biggest god send to IT people, it integrates a full helpdesk designed for IT guys, link tickets to devices to find fault machines quicker and let your users login via a user portal to update and create tickets.
Once you have the hang of using the software you can dive into the HUGE community of questions, reviews, advice and just plan fun.
