Is there a free ready to use helpdesk software?

By elisamark8 ·
I am, head of the IT department of a non-profit organization with around 75 employees. Our services are growing rapidly and we are in need of a helpdesk software which would not need customization to suit our needs. The reason being we don't wish to hire analysts or buy servers. As we are in the non profit industry, preferable would be free software. Any suggestion?

SysAid Help Desk is free

I've just started testing SysAid myself. So far, it'll do what we need.

Another free one I found while searching was Omni Help Desk, but I never could get it to install and when I emailed them for help, the email was bounced. Could have been a system glitch, but I didn't give them a second chance.

I would recommend SysAid. We use it here and we have about 70 employees also and it works a treat.

Elisa, maybe you could try Pathworks software. It is a Free web based helpdesk service. It is also easy to use and has customizable fields. Pathworks also has a guided self service portal. It can also be scaled according to your company?s requirements.It has automatic updates. For more information, you could visit their site at
