Topic of the day- what does everyone use for Helpdesk and ticketing?  We're currently using a FOSS solution that's working well, but we need to grow.  I'm interested in hearing what everyone likes and the guesstimate on what it's cost your company.

The free licence version of ManageEngine ServiceDesk Plus.

Previously we've used Spiceworks and OneOrZero. Also Hesk for facilities management tickets.

Quick rant time- tldr: fuck you, +LogMeIn 

Backstory: I was a self employed IT consultant for 4.5 years and happily paid for LogMeIn since it saved me on lots of occasions.  It's nice to have a solid product that lets me work from home on most computer issues.  Fast forward to three months ago and I merged with some old friends and merged my clients and LogMeIn account with theirs, effectively ending mine.
I killed my company back account and I assumed that'd kill the accompanying credit card, too.  I saw a LogMeIn renewal fail, which makes sense since the accompanying account was gone.  Another five renewal attempts failed... then I got a call from my bank.

"Mr Kennedy, the account you closed with us a while back was reopened and has a negative balance.  It seems you charged something to a company named LogMeIn."

I explained by failed transactions and also assured them that if I closed the account I won't be liable for anyone being able to "reopen" my fucking account.  Anyway, a call to LogMeIn confirmed that they failed SIX times to auto-renew my account and somehow managed to force through a 7th and final attempt.  Someone manually put my charge through.  They immediately issued me an apology and a refund.

Refund and apology aside, how the fuck can they do that?  And did they not expect me to be fucking furious when that happened?  I went ahead and reported the card as lost with Visa after that to guarantee no one could pull that shit again.

Lesson learned.  Keep an extra close eye on those assholes.  What they did was shady as hell and no way to treat loyal customers.  I would have happily kept the account if the merger didn't happen.  Now all I can do is spread my displeasure online and rate their shadiness as low as I possibly can.

To everyone who commented, this is the type of company I'm dealing with.  I got this email today:

"Dear customer,

Your subscription for LogMeIn Central Plus service will end within 72 hours.
You are receiving this notification because the automatic payment has failed. ( Credit card - declined )

For more information, please find the payment invoice attached to this letter.

Payment must be submitted before 5/04/2015, in order to avoid delays and service interruptions.

Thank you for using LogMeIn"


And yes, my card was just declined once again.  This comes a week or so after I got a refund.  Idiots.

+Faronics I just spoke with Jerry who has called me almost daily for weeks.  I told him very firmly to ensure my number was off your call list.  Your daily calls are annoying as shit.  If I wanted to buy more licenses of your product I would.  I will buy anything else to avoid dealing with you guys in the future.

I'm still loving AL3. Your newest updates are fantastic.
Is it possible to add "lock/unlock desktop" as a gesture? I like to have the desktop locked and would love to be able to lock and unlock it with a triple tap.

Thanks bud!
