Need for asset scheduling and reservation system

With a growing number of IT resources that need to be shared among a growing number of people, it is becoming apparent that we need a better way to keep track of where things are and a better way to reserve them for important events. Examples of shared resources include projectors, laptop computers, cameras, instructional CD ROMs, movies.

An ideal inventory management system would combine inventory, reservations, scheduling, troubletickets and a knowledgebase. That is, we need to know what we have, where it is, who needs it, how it works, what is broken, and how to fix it.  All of this information is related to each other.

Our new trackit system will give us a good inventory, troubleticket and knowledgebase system. But reservations and scheduling — sort of like a library setup — seems to still be a need.
