    Spiceworks springs to mind, if your policies etc. are set correctly then it can be ITIL compliant

    Oh yeah looked at Spiceworks not to kean to be honest.
    I like the look and feel of Manage Engine ServiceDesk Plus but obviously this costs!

    Request Tracker can be crafted to be ITIL compliant. It is a very capable system, free, and infinitely flexible. However, configuration is complex.

    We have Spiceworks installed as an inventory system here and I use its helpdesk to log my work calls whenever I get a chance, would recommend it, but be prepared to have to turn about 90% of its functionality off when using it.

    No worries. We found it overpowered for what we needed and the Helpdesk in HAP+ is simple enough for our staff to love!
