“Why I like using Spiceworks & think it’s ‘the best network management product’…”

I’ve done my bit now your turn, you can see my attempt below; its not that great and not sure its really a “chime in” mainly as i don’t know what a “chime in” really is?
I like using Spiceworks and believe it is the best IT management product around because it provides me with all the tools I need to carry out my job in an effective manner for free. From the inventory to the helpdesk every little bit of Spiceworks is designed for IT pro’s by IT’s pro’s.
I find every aspect of Spiceworks useful; the inventory allows me to keep track of my whole network from new machines being added to new software being installed. With the added bonus of a helpdesk I can keep track of all my user’s problems and link them back to devices or software to help me gain the most out of the reporting features in which provide me with an accurate and up-to-date overview of my hardware.
Spiceworks is also great for alerting me when my servers go offline; with its powerful monitoring features I am able to keep track of toner levels and server uptime via email. It also provides me with a great way of keeping track of service providers that I use.
With new features being added and updated all the time Spiceworks is one of the fastest growing bits off software I use; there are so many great new things being added like the network map which now allows me automagically create a map of my network saving me time and money on network mapping software.
But by all means the best part of Spiceworks is the community; it’s a fun and exciting place to get answers to my problems and help people with theirs. It’s also a great way to keep to up to date with the latest IT news and get in contact with vendors about their products.
The Spiceworks team are also second to none for support; they all love their job and love being part of the community. They are willing to help you out where ever you need and regularly hold conference calls with members of the community about their product and services.
Spiceworks is the only bit of software that has adverts that I like; they are targeted to IT pros about things we will be interested in, also with people from Microsoft, AMD and IBM in the community we can keep up to date with product information and get hand on help with questions.
And that’s why I love Spiceworks in fewer than 500 words. There are bits that I have missed off im sure.
