Web App for Support tickets/case history

I am trying to find a way for all of my sales reps to submit a "ticket" when something goes wrong.  I would like each of them to have a URL, and a login.  That way, when they are having PC issues, they can just log-in, and submit a ticket.  

I am not organized, so having everything in a core place, instead of jumbled in to my outlook would be awesome.  

I would like it to be easy to install.  Is there a such thing?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

ok. I'm kind of new to this whole thing.  What should my steps be?  I installed it on my local machine, but I don't suppose that is going to work like I want it to.  

Suggestions? or steps?  please.

Sorry, I'm a newbie when it comes to web apps.

A little information about how your network is setup would help.  Do you have a in house server?

I do.  I am running SBS2003, and utilizing all features of it, except we have a Cisco Firewall.  I do not host our webpage on our in-house server. we actually use a host... just to ease tension on our server.  

I am also running a FnP server, that is running windows Server 2003.  Without any features really.

Having your website hosted makes it more complicated.  

Assuming your web host will not run the spiceworks app for you.  

You will need to install the spiceworks app on your SBS2003 server.  Then on your website you will need to have the webpage you designate access the spiceworks running on your server.  If you are not currently running a intranet type information server on your SBS2003 this may not be something you want to do.

This is something over my head if you go this way.  Someone in the help forums for spiceworks may have a better idea.  

I use ours on a server in house and all our people use citrix to access our intranet running on our own webservers.

I would recommend that you look at SysAid.  They have a free version that's very good if you want to do it all yourself.  They also offer an On-Demand version that is totally hosted.  It is very reasonably priced.
You just can't beat this product for the money, in my opinion.

I got it figured out.  THe only thing is, for outside people to use it they have to connect to a VPN>  Which isn't a problem at all for us!

THanks!!!
