Spiceworks 4.5 – Freeing Larger Networks Around the World

Can you believe it?!  Over 10,000 companies with more than 500 employees use Spiceworks.   For the past year we suggested it was designed for companies with fewer than 500 devices on our website.  Prior to January 2009 we suggested fewer than 250.   Well later today when we release Spcieworks 4.5 we’re doing something […]

Spiceworks 4.1: It’s Everything IT

Less than two months after releasing Spiceworks 4.0 we’ve released Spiceworks 4.1.  That would be our 16th release in three years (and I’m not counting the 20+ community releases).  Summer vacation?  What’s that? Spiceworks 4.1 included 183 fixes, changes and new features, 159 of which we’ve documented in our 4.1 release notes. If you’ve used […]

So, […]

Crowdsourcing IT — The Power of 400,000 Small Business CIOs

On Wednesday we announced three new “crowdsourcing” features in Spiceworks: Shared Advice & Best Practices, Best Products & Services, and Shared Reports. They went live late last night thanks to the efforts of our great development team. We’ve already seen great coverage of the news in Inc., MarketWatch, and bMighty, showing there is a lot […]
