I would like to add to all my devices a date purchased field that I can enter in a date for each device and run reports against it.  Any ideas as to what is the best way to do this?

Under Asset, Asset Types, edit the Computer asset type. Add a custom field for date purchased and save the asset type. You can now include that field when building reports.

When it comes to entering the data, we have a process in place that works like this:
Equipment is ordered based on a ticket in the service desk, the ticket ID is used as our PO number.
When equipment is received the assets are imported into KACE by our receiving folks. The import includes the PO number.
A custom ticket rule updates the assets with the purchased date based on the service desk ticket.
