A few questions...
We're a large South African Non-Profit organisation looking for a way to keep track of our tech assets (laptops, desktop computers, proximas, network and other printers).
With your software, will we be able to easily see which staff member was allocated which computer and when? Or see which network printer is in use in what office?
Will we be able to track to which staff member a alptop was first allocated? We usually only buy laptops for senior staff and reallocate their old laptops to more junior staff.
Instead of putting a sticker with a QR code on each computer (we have about 300 computers in use in more than 50 offices country-wide - will be next to impossible to physically put a sticker on each one) - instead, can we use the customisable images on the login screens (MS environment) and use a QR code instead of an image of cute puppies? We'll then have an Administrator login with a QR code, and a user login for whomever the computer was allocated to.

with EZOfficeInventory you will be able to see which staff member was allocated what and when. You can also configure locations to be nested and see which assets belong to which office. eg, Laser Printer1 is in location mailroom1 and this in turn is set to be in location office1. Then through filters you can view all assets in office1 (and nested locations).
The history for assignments is tracked for the life of the asset, so you'll know exactly who had it and for how long.
Any digital barcode image can be used on the login screens, just be sure to add the unique id to the asset's identifier field.
