Should I choose Aptien or Itefy - or something else?
Choosing the right software isn't (unfortunately) as simple as picking the cheapest or most function rich one. However, most equipment management software solutions has a free, time limited trial account option that makes it easy to test and evaluate the software.
Also, you should consider factors like if it will become very expensive if you need to add more assets/items or users, how easy it is to use, if there sufficient help resources like tutorials and help topics available etc.
You should also take into consideration that if a solution is free or very cheap, it still may come at a cost (no software suppliers can run their businesses for free).
