Thanks for the quick response.

I am basically seeking that the asset feature is worth the move to RT. As
much as I know about RT I think we (our department) can roll our own
automated scripts to get info and keep it updated.The one we use now can't
get warranty information and I am hoping I can get Dell to cooperate and
allow us to grab the warranty info directly using the service tag number.
Then we could update the fields when we do our initial loads. Right ow we
have not been using the system we have correctly as it is not easy. It is
School Dude and they just changed the way they gather asset info which made
their product unusable for us. They said we are two big. (17 High Schools
and Central Office)
