It is good for a free product, sometimes a bit overwhelming and sometimes a bit underwhelming.

Pros

It's free and does have a lot of functions.

Cons

Lots of those functions are not setup and unless you pay for support, it's user community for help, which isn't always helpful.

Advice to Others

If you don't have the money it's great, else, look for other product.

I like the way Spicework is executed, however, it needs improvement. We were using it with the combination of our Gmail account. There are times it doesn't show who the sender is, so we have to locate it from our mailbox, which is an extra step we don't need.

Pros

It enables the user to keep track on how long the individual spends on the assigned task.

Cons

It needs to tell the user who the sender is, rather than guessing who sent it. We can improve on adding graphics to make it look more appealing to the user.

Useful but too cumbersome

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

Value for Money

Spiceworks provides a valuable way to keep track of tasks and to provide a system of accountability for employers. The interface of the platform creates a few issues. The size of the font in tickets is too small, it makes it difficult to work from it on a daily basis. Also, there are a few glitches with how information is displayed when the screen is enlarged. It's difficult to see the last ticket as it is often hidden under the field where you view information. When you link tickets to a group email, it doesn't always show who the ticket is from...instead, it lists the ticket as coming from the group email...which makes it difficult to follow up on issues.

Pros

Provides a way to track tasks, creates reports on productivity.

Cons

Advice to Others

I honestly wouldn't recommend it unless there are improvements to some of the issues I've mentioned before. As I do not work at a tech company, it does not provide a better way of keeping track of tasks (in a way that makes using email inefficient)

Value for Money

We tried using Spiceworks at my work, but it was way too glitchy to be effective. Tickets were created that didn't include the email address of the person emailing us and when I responded, the message didn't go anywhere! I had to contact our Spiceworks admin to dig into the system and figure out where these messages came from and it ended up taking days to things that should have taken minutes. Ultimately it seemed easier to just go back to using other software instead of your ticketing system.

Pros

I like the idea of a ticketing system, but Spiceworks was too cumbersome to be effective. I also like that Spiceworks is stationed in Austin.

Cons

Emails got lost, the interface wasn't intuitive, the search function was inefficient.

Advice to Others

Try a collaborative inbox in Gmail instead.

We are a 1.2 person IT/computer education department and growing by leaps and bounds. We needed something to keep track of our open issues that didn't cost us much because we work at a Catholic school and the budget is low. Free is a good word and Spiceworks is beyond my expectations. Has the ability to create an article for a knowledgebase.

And can also generate stats.

Pros

Easy to use.

Advice to Others

Since we are a small shop, this may not have all the functionality of some big ticket help desk apps but I was surprised at how much it does have.

Useful but Decided Not to Keep Using it (used cloud version)

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

Value for Money

I used the cloud-based version of Spiceworks for our tech support team as our ticketing system. It was a way to keep track of all the inquiries, a way to divide tasks, keep track of how quickly these tasks were getting done and what topics are being worked on the most. Spiceworks is very easy to get off the ground, very easy to use. I liked the categories, having its own portal, & email address. I used it with my google group so anyone who emailed our specific email would then get forwarded to Spiceworks and from there it would automatically generate a ticket. I found it great to take a quick look to see productivity and efficiency of the team. It's a centralized location and prevents topics/emails from being forgotten.

Pros

Easy to use. Reporting feature is cool to see what response time is, can export a report to CSV. Nice for supervisors to see what is being worked on. It splits up the responsibility of the tasks and we know who is responsible.

Cons

Any yahoo.com emails would not get the creator labeled properly so if we were to respond to that ticket, it wouldn't go to the actual creator. Staff found it cumbersome and difficult to read the small font and to follow the thread.

Advice to Others

The downloaded version has more functionality. I used a google group and perhaps that caused some problems with yahoo accounts, I'm not sure. People who emailed us using a yahoo account would not get their ticket labeled properly by them as the creator so keep an eye out for that. Our staff was reluctant to use this so 50% of the team did not want to continue using it. It's great for upper management oversight but the staff didn't like using it as much. Train them on the nuances, explain why it's useful to use to get them on board. Maybe do a trail run with a dummy account.

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

Value for Money

Spiceworks Help Desk is great for free. not perfect but we have been running it for 4 1/2 years and expanded from help desk into inventory, (which is great because then you can tag assets into the tickets) and also into the purchasing module. the purchasing module needs some work and has for sometime, despite my input contributions from my supply chain and procurement background before I joined IT. It has gotten a bit slow over the years and spiceworks answer was to deploy it on a physical server, which of course we said no. We have 17100 plus tickets in the system now. It has sped up a bit with recent updates, but all in all we are very happy with it and have replaced solor winds with the network monitor.

Pros

Free and effective nice integration with inventory and depreciation changes. Great dashboard that we use in the office for ownership and management.

Cons

a bit slow in the searches. purchasing module needs improvements

Advice to Others

The network monitor does not have autodiscovery yet...but works great with simple alerting. spiceworks is great and i don't mind the ads, helps keep you updated with technology

We use Spiceworks to track and assign all of our Helpdesk tickets for IT and facilities at our school. It couldn't be any easier to access, assign or communicate with others on the help desk ticket. If I need to recheck something or someone asks if they put in a work order for something that was broken to be fix, I can easily search with one or two words and all the tickets come up for that item, person or the issuer of the help desk ticket. I only hope others are already using this system of atleast give it a try!

Pros

Flexibility - the information is always accessible.

Cons

Not be able to sort closed tickets by user / they appear alphabetical.

Advice to Others

Give it a try... you'll be glad you did.

Reviewing Spiceworks Usability and Features:
Overall, Spiceworks is a great solution. I enjoy the community and all the modules that come with Spiceworks. I even enjoy the ingenuity of how its free yet very high quality. It's a really great product.

Pros

1) Spiceworks software offers a strong, easy to use network management solution for free
2) Spiceworks software comes with free helpdesk solution unlike other similar network management solutions
3) The customer support of Spiceworks is always there to help users get through the technical details via phone and email
4) The network management module also comes with mobile dedicated app for iPhone and Android

Cons

1) Spiceworks HD doesn’t support using your own database which can be really difficult to accept for some users
2) The software doesn’t give you control over the networks you are monitoring, you can only get visibility

Advice to Others

Make it more visibility and improve UI. It needs to be intuitive.

This Software is easy to use, customization to whatever you need, and you can't beat the price! Even though this software could do even more than it is for us now, it is exactly what we need and keeps our support requests, hardware/software inventory, and vendor information all in one great place! My absolute favorite feature is email setup for support requests, all the details that go along with that feature!

Spiceworks desktop is a fantastically robust and helpful utility. From my experience, they two key advantages to this software are the low cost and the community support. For small businesses or non-profits, this is a great option to use for managing support requests (ticketing system) and monitoring the network (network scans and hardware reporting). Any major challenges encountered with using this software can be probably found within the community forums. Most, if not all, of the users on the forums are happy to help out with recommendations and suggestions from their own experience.
If you're looking for a simple, yet powerful solution for Helpdesk ticketing and network monitoring, I would strongly recommend checking out Spiceworks for your environment.

We have been using Spiceworks as our main IT Help Desk Platform.
I am using the word platform as it is really a platform on top of which you can build you IT management. A lot of apps are available and you can use it even for approval processes for the IT.
It is fast to set-up, easy to use and whats most important it is free.
The only disadvantage is that is uses SQL lite so if you want additional reporting, you have to be creative. It comes with a rebuild dashbord but if your IT is not small, you may want to consider other ways of managing the performance of your workers. The biggest disadvantage is that you can not exclude the "waiting" period of some ticket from your general timeframe in your reports automatically, this has to be dome manually.
For everything else, Spiceworks truly "rocks".

Pros

Fast, easy to use, lite

Cons

Only SQL lite, reporting

Spiceworks is not the most powerful tool, It is not the most versatile, it is not even the prettiest but it is the best bang for your buck if you are just starting out. It offers everything that a small one or two person shop needs. If you expand beyond that, I would start to look into alternatives as the system begins to become unstable and unsearchable if you go beyond ~500 tickets a month.

Our comprehensive educational materials help you build skills and our detailed feedback and scoring system gives you the practice you need to walk into your next interview with confidence. Applying your skills in simulated interviews with Molly Porter and working for higher scores on higher difficulties will make you confident that you can nail your next real-world interview.

Advice to Others

You¿ve read books on interviewing cover to cover. You¿ve watched tutorials online. You¿ve written out your answers to standard questions and practiced them in front of the mirror. But when you¿re face-to-face with a real interviewer, you freeze up. How do you put all that planning into practice?

Use this as our ticketing/tracking system for a SMB. Free is a great start. Works well and is reasonable easy to install, host and deploy. What I like most is the community. If I have a one off problem I just can't solve I post a question to the community and often get one in less than hour. I'd pay for membership to the forums alone.

This is by far the most helpful software a IT guy can take advantage of! Extremely easy to set up and makes your day run so much smoother. I do wish it had a little more features but for a free software you cant go wrong.

Pros

Easy to use, fast to set up, runs smoothly. Free!!

Cons

It could use some more features, slightly lacking.

Our team solves tickets everyday using Spiceworks. Love the fact that users can log in and check on the status of their ticket. The email notifications for incoming tickets is also very good. It greatly increases our company's performance without costing anything. This is easily the best ticketing system available on the market.

Pros

Easy to use, free and Great UI. Love the ticketing system. It's greatest feature is the inventory management system, it scans and inventories practically everything on your network.

Cons

The only thing I dislike is that spiceworks only supports Windows Servers. I hope in the future they start supporting Mac OSX.

Advice to Others

If you don't want to spend money on a ticketing system, Spiceworks is the way to go. I would go as far as saying it beats lots of paid solutions.

This has been a great product to run my business "IT Support Care" in Melbourne. It has most of the features that our organisation requires to manage our customers IT infrastructure, from Servers, networking equipment, desktops, laptops and tablets.

Pros

Easy to Install on any windows platform and very easy to navigate through installation and setup of features. The Spiceworks community is a great source for any advice and support you might require. Straight out of the box there are great features and functions that my organisation use on a daily basis's.

Cons

Lacks features through customization of Ticket information and reporting functions.

There is a local (completely free) or web based version (monthly cost $10), exceptionally easy to use and install. Updates have been seamless and it is a unified communications platform

Pros

Easy, configurable and free. Has an App for Admins which makes remote administration easy. Has good updates, version control and notifications.

Cons

Can't interrogate 100% of network devices but it is close to it.

Advice to Others

The SpiceWorks community is the killer app here, you have you Help Desk but also thousands/millions of IT Pro's and a forum to help you out. Even if you don't use the software join the Community https://community.spiceworks.com/feed
