Helpful: for each item in inventory, link to vendor's web site, link to model number's web site (preferably the one containing the technical documentation and firmware updates), link to the website for the s/n (if it's a Dell). Link to map of location on floor.
RedHat Network can get a lot of system data, as can Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) (Microsoft implementation of DMI + some SNMP-like stuff).
