Now with added support for external laser scanning devices
This may be helpful but our latest release of BarKode includes support for Bluetooth scanners for both IOS and Android handheld devices, check out the details in IT Ninja
We now have a BarKode app that will scan the barcode label on any asset and upload the data directly into the K1000. We also have a sticker manufacturer that will print any value on a barcode asset label. Asset management best practice would suggest that the Asset Name match the Service TAG so the virtual matches the physical. So just provide a list of your service tags to the label maker, get the barcodes printed, then use our App to manage all of your Assets.
Check out our new v2 release of BarKode for this kind of functionality, using the cameraon your iOS handheld device you are now able to create any Asset Type, scan and update data for any asset or even scan multiple assets and update your Dell KACE K1000 appliance directly, no CSV's no uploads, no waiting.

I would agree, there are occasions where it is more appropriate to have a field "Name" other than "Name", for example for a Mobile Phone to call the field "IMEI" makes sense as a primary key, so just the ability to call the Primary key field on an asset anything other than name would be helpful
It would be good if we can add a field to any asset that applies a sequential number, that would be stage one, but we would also need to be able to set the asset primary key field to anything other than name
