Ideal free helpdesk for small to medium businesses

Overall I have been very happy with Spiceworks, especially the community of users.

Pros

It's impossible to beat the cost of free. The product is well designed and functions extremely well for the job it is designed for.

Cons

Larger IT departments won't be able to route tickets to specific teams. It would be very nice if spiceworks could expand its offering to include sub service desks etc.

Reasons for switching to Spiceworks

The ongoing costs of Jira after the elimination of our development department no longer made sense.

Help Desk Where You Want It

Starting a new role in the organization that had no Help Desk and no history or structure; Spiceworks proved to be the single biggest one thing that could be done right that would yeild improved IT services to the organization. User responsibility shifted to reporting IT issues using email and overall satisfaction improved and service impacting issues due to weaknesses in infrastructure, bad procedures or mislaid processes were identified by the ticketing system and corrected.

Pros

I started using Spiceworks in the cloud and then copied the database and importing it to our VM and lost nothing. It is an efficient and easy to use platform. Adding techs and break-fix categories to track what needs to be improved proved to be successful. This allows IT to focus on root cause and then to deploy solutions to prevent the same.

Cons

The reports need to be streamlined to remove redundancy. Quantity is not always a good thing and by compressing and focusing on key areas the reporting could be a lot better and less fractured.

Reasons for choosing Spiceworks

First it was/is free. This proved great for our tight budget. We added Manage Engine and the integration proved invaluable. With the two combined, we now have analytics and desktop management and patching.

Spiceworks Helpdesk - A great option for small business or a start up operation.

I have used spiceworks in a both a large corporate enterprise as well as in my current role with a small startup and both cases the software just works and functions as intended. A few tweaks here and there could make this software perfect but in any case it is a goto software for me.

Pros

I loved that the price is free! This makes a huge impact to the success of a startup or small company. The other key feature is the fact that the product works. It functions exactly how a ticket system should function.

Cons

I hate that it is so difficult to be able to get our clients to use the site. This is primarily because routing the DNS information from our domain to their site is cumbersome at best. If they provide a simpler way to route your domain to their site it would improve the offering and would even be worth a few dollars per month for this functionality.

Reasons for choosing Spiceworks

Seemed more robust and I had used them in the past.
