What is Snipe-IT?



Snipe-IT is an asset management system for hardware (e.g., personal computers and printers) and software (e.g., applications).

Many companies have a variety of "assets" such as equipment and fixtures necessary for business operations.

In particular, fixed assets are those that are held for more than one year and have a value that is used for a long period of time, so they are depreciated for accounting purposes. The accountant must know exactly what type of fixed assets he or she owns and how long they have been in use.

The reality is that companies manage these assets they own in some application (e.g., Excel).

However, there are also challenges such as not being able to manage how many assets there are in the entire company and not knowing when hardware/licenses are due for renewal, which is the norm.

Snipe-IT is a system that can manage not only IT assets but also consumables and can solve the aforementioned issues.
