Pros

I am the administrator and I love having the ability to make changes and customization on the fly. The user friendliness of it is well above our previous software we used.

JJ

Jeffrey J.

Ticketing system, knowledge base and inventory management are all awesome and constantly improving. And the metrics are great to help justify budgets to upper management, and show trends.

PS

Paul S.

The dashboard and reporting are very helpful. They give us a good picture of how we're doing and where we can improve.

Jason I.

Pros

I like that is free, the installation is easy and the software is user friendly. OsTicket is a customizable ticket system that offers some nice features like email notifications.

Anonymous Reviewer

In terms of simplicity, OSTicket is really user-friendly and easy to use platform that perfectly realises its own purposes of being reliable ticketing system.

Giorgi G.

It has all the best features, is easy to set up, deploy, and maintain and is fully customizable. I needed a help desk platform that could be hosted on-site and osTicket has fit the bill perfectly.

SB

Shawn B.

Cons

By that I mean the lack of reports and reporting tools.

JM

Jada M.

Reporting doesn't report accurately compared to a custom query, which is odd.

TM

Tim M.

Some of the customizations of the user portal are a bit hard to find from the admin side.

SC

Scott C.

Cons

The main disadvantage of the system might be its lack of statistical measurements. It was the main aspect I was lacking while using the OsTicket.

Giorgi G.

Difficult to install, you need a webmaster to do so, very proficient on Apache and php.

Alejandro H.

For out of the box ticketing system, this software has no real downsides. Some have said its hard to install but I did not have any issues getting it up and running.
