We are a research facility and have the same issue with not always knowing where and whose stuff is in the freezer or refrigerators. Even with the best system though you still have to have people who communicate that they are taking stuff out and also replacing back where it was removed from.
We have instituted the use of a system called Freezer Pro. Here is the web address http://www.ruro.com/products/freezerpro.html
At least this is a start, hope it helps.

Subject: [Histonet] fridge/freezer storage space
Does anyone out there have an effective policy for monitoring the storage of material at 4C,-20C or -80C. At the moment if any more space is required the solution is usually to buy another fridge or freezer, which then takes up more floor space, uses more electricity and quickly fills as individuals use the space that has become available. So can anyone suggest/ or has in place a system whereby the contents of fridges/freezers can be monitored on a regular basis and old/out of date stuff is disposed off. I expect that all you GLP laboratories have it sorted, and I would welcome any input from you. Ours is a university lab where no such rules/regulations seem to exist and often when people leave they forget to throw out their stuff which can then remain for years.
