IT Support Desk Software

Hi All,

i'm after some IT support desk software, ideally freeware but i dont mind paying a oneoff fee - will not consider a subscription service.

ive googled a bit but can find anythig i like the look of or that isnt subscription based.

It should be an online based software that i could possible integrate into my own domain name

There are several open source options.  And of course, you can look at the spiceworks component.  OsTicket, OTRS, and the others listed here: http://www.opensourcehelpdesklist.com/

NOTE: Free of license fee doesn't mean free... when you could be billing for your time, spending it implementing a "free" ticketing system is COSTING you billable time.

Free Tool: Site Down Detector

Helpful to verify reports of your own downtime, or to double check a downed website you are trying to access.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

Thank you both.

why didnt i think of Joomla! doh! its being installed behind a joomla site anway so that makes sence.

however ive split the points between ou both because there is loads to investigate at http://www.opensourcehelpdesklist.com/ so i may choose software from there.

thanks guys
