I am trying to find a good asset management solution (gpl) for our hospital (we should take care of furniture, medical machines and personal computers), of course working on Ubuntu and web-based.

Any hints?


Sounds like what you need is a fixed asset management system:

Try glpi from the repositories or one of these sourceforge projects:

GLPI is available in the Ubuntu repository. It's a pretty well-made FOSS asset management system.



sudo apt-get install glpi

GLPI and their Generic Object plugin is the way to go. Just don't use the packaged glpi since its pretty outdated.

You just need a webserver , php and mysql/mariadb.

You can find the latest prerequsites here: https://glpi-install.readthedocs.io/en/latest/prerequisites.html
