Which of the System Center component can be used as asset management

Hello everyone,

It may sound silly but is there any way to maintain all hardware assets inside of any System Center component?

Functionality that I'm looking for:

  1. Ability to add my own custom field.
  2. Tracking status of asset (for example when I give laptop to new employee I should be set status that indicates that it's in use)

Nice to have:

  1. Perpipherals assets (monitors, mouses, etc.)
  2. Ability to store file alongside asset (for example handover protocol for taken device)

What do you use in your environment in such case?
Thank you so much for your help.

    Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager (formerly known as System Center Configuration Manager). We could use the hardware inventory in Configuration Manager to collect information about the hardware configuration of client devices in your organization.

    Hardware inventory could collect information from Windows PCs by using Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) or registry.

    Hello @Xingyu Zhao-MSFT , thank you for your suggestion.

    I read about other solutions, and I think that System Center Service Manager would be better in our case since we can extend classes to our needs. We are using SCCM inventory functions but mostly for troubleshooting cases.

    I think my question can be marked as completed, thank you.
