Challenge

GLPI helped us to quickly build up the IT Asset management system and the out-of-box solution for ticket management. The highlight function of AD integration is very important if you want to quickly build a solution for everyone in the organization. One of the handy function I found with GLPI is that the asset association with users, it’s very useful when users can connect with their own device when they try to submit a ticket.

Requirments

We use Asset Management the most, it has been super helpful since 0.85 with the Dashboard plugin. We also use the Helpdesk/Change – Problem Management feature. Financial management was integrated with Asset management, this is also important when you want to develop a long-term strategy for your asset management.

The first version I tried I guess should be 0.7x. At YK Pao School GLPI helped us to quickly build up the IT Asset management system and the out-of-box solution for ticket management.
