Does your company have a small IT staff? Don’t let them feel alone – harness the power of Spiceworks™, an online IT community with a multitude of free resources, support, and tools.
Founded in 2006, Spiceworks is the world’s largest and fastest growing social business network for IT. By combining free IT management software with a Facebook-like community, Spiceworks helps over 1.8 million IT professionals to discover, buy and manage $300 billion worth of technology products and services each year.
The Spiceworks community is a force to be reckoned with! They call themselves SpiceHeads…wear Spiceworks gear proudly, and hail a fierce yet friendly orange T-Rex (affectionately named “SpiceRex”) as their mascot.
