    Another vote for Spiceworks here - also great for keeping inventory (not sure if that costs anything, I just use it! Not in charge of it...)

    £1500 for a helpdesk is a tad pricey though, although I like the features.

    To be fair, "pricy" depends very much on your needs and requirements. On one hand, I'd totally suggest the free Spiceworks system to organisations that are a good fit for it, on the other we're spending about £20k on helpdesk software and I don't regard it as "pricy" for the abilities of the system we're getting.

    Remedy problem management is best option for login in helpdesk related tickets and issues. For providing remote support or technical assistance, logmein, gosupportnow, GoToMyPC, on premise RHUB remote support appliances etc. are advisable.

    We're currently using Zendesk which is good, and I like the cloud hosted aspect of it, but I find there are quite a few areas it falls down in.

    Specifically I wish it incorporated :-

    1) Scheduling/Calendaring for jobs/tasks
    2) Somekind of Asset Management to link calls to specific hardware/device faults
    3) A method of monitoring internal department processes/procedure and change control

    A colleague suggested looking at SysAid and another school recommended SolarWinds but I wanted to ask if anyone had any other suggestions?

    I Am an IT Apprentice for a school in Lincolnshire and we use spice works and its so easy to use even most of the staff know how to send in a help-desk request and the actual software you use to receive is really easy two, i would highly recommend using spiceworks.

    We've just sat through a webinar for ManageEngine and I've got to say it looks awesome as a combined helpdesk, asset management, AD Management and software/OS deployment solution. It all looks really easy to use, intuitive and very well integrated.

    Is anyone currently using it and if so would you recommend it?

    Do you host this yourself or is it cloud based? I'm looking at updating ours and looking at this one. What sort of money did you pay?

    Thanks
