PC Info

A customer-facing web tool to view detailed information about a computer. Designed for use by computer repair shops and electronics refurbishers.

PC Info is similar to Dell's "service tag" system, where simply typing a service tag into Dell's website allows viewing various pieces of information about a machine.

This application works by providing a read-only web UI to the customer, and a JSON API to authorized applications (using an API key).


  • Flexible: Attach any number of components and history entries to a machine, and add free-form notes to each

  • Simple: Customers simply type in a unique ID number (usually on a sticker) to instantly view all information

  • Secure: API keys can be assigned roles to restrict usage

  • Custom Branding: Supply your own logo and favicon URLs with a config setting
