Dear Shakthi777,

I recommend the free tool(s) from SpiceWorks: http://www.spiceworks.com/free-help-desk-software/

There’s a growing demand for qualified analysts who can make sense of Big Data. With an MS in Data Analytics, you can become the data mining, management, mapping, and munging expert that today’s leading corporations desperately need.


please check OTRS - http://otrs.org/

It is Linux based, and it's free. Web interface. email interface, reporting - all there.
Very flexible, feature-rich and usable, yet not ultra-easy to install.

I would try one of the following:

1.CommitCRM is designed specifically for small
IT Services, MSPs and
Computer Repair businesses.

2. sysAID IT


This should help you.

Dear Shakthi777,

you may also want to check out http://www.zendesk.com/ which is a cloud based SAAS Service Desk solution which a.o. includes a Ticketing system.
As this is cloud based, there is nothing you'd need to install in-house.

It is not free, but has a simple pricing plan based upon number of "agents" (i.e. Service Desk employees), and immediately give you global reach.
Also not to forget, is the cost you save by running any such in-house (hardware, OS, software licenses, maintenance...).

we use http://bestpractical.com/rt  RT is an enterprise-grade ticketing system which enables a group of people to intelligently and efficiently manage tasks, issues, and requests submitted by a community of users. RT is your organization’s focal point for tracking tasks, issues, knowledge, and collaboration.

It’s easy to submit, assign, prioritize, search, escalate, and report on issues.
RT keeps track of each ticket’s full history and metadata to help your organization better retain knowledge and analyze trends. RT can track multiple projects for multiple teams within a single installation. RT tracks critical system metadata, including time spent per action, due dates, and estimated time to completion.

Beside RT we have  Spiceworks' IT Desktop which also has been implemented at a lot of our client sites. It's got everything you're looking for, plus some -- Inventory, Monitoring, Reporting, Tracking, Ticketing System, etc.
