Helpdesk Options


I am after a helpdesk for approx. 10 people who will be using it.

It needs to have the following

1. be onsite not cloud based
2. email to ticket functionality.
3. Assign calls to staff but if they don't complete the call by the end of the day for them to put notes in for any user to pick up the next day.
4. emails to be sent in and out and it updates each ticket.

I don't mind spending money on this but it is only for 10 people. I have looked at zoho and this is great but cloud based only ? any thoughts ?

This should tick all the boxes. On-premise and web based. We are currently using this ourselves and it is a very good product. Please refer to the link below. They will also provide you with a free trial and free demo and will answer any technical questions you may have.

Have you looked at SpiceWorks?  It has a ticketing system you can run and it's hosted on your own systems.  And it's free.

Otherwise, free usually means complicated (google open source help desk for a list of free apps).
