Currently we use three different Spiceworks help desks for three different departments. It started for IT use and eventually our Facilities team and Merchandising team both wanted the use of Spiceworks. Both IT and Facilities are on prem. installations whereas the Merchandising team uses the cloud version of Spiceworks. This allows for each department to keep up with what's going on as well as have a trail to search in case of repeat problems or tickets.
  • Easy creation of tickets whether via email or input directly from staff.
  • Multiple options including the ability to add-on or modify as needed.
  • Easy end user experience in creating and updating tickets.
  • User portal giving a landing page for end users accessible via browser.
  • The cloud version has some limitations when it comes to how emails are sent to it via specially made applications.
  • More roles and notifications options specific to each role.
I would recommend it highly. With the cost of free and the customizable options the ROI is fairly high. If the company is too large I may not recommend it, but most small to medium businesses could use this help desk to it's fullest. Larger businesses with 1000+ employees spread out over large areas may be more difficult to use depending on what the company does.

Spiceworks Help Desk is used to manage our entire IT helpdesk operation. Users across the entire company access it to submit helpdesk tickets, make purchase requests, and check status. The IT department I oversee works the individual ticket items.
  • Workflow
  • Customization
  • Inventory
  • Response Management
  • Escalation
  • The desktop version has been supplanted by the online version (and a local version of that online version), losing a lot of core functionality
  • Ticket collision
It's a great helpdesk solution - we currently have five years of data within it, roughly 25,000 tickets. The older edition is a great inventory and software license tracking tool. It is easy for users to use the interface and submit tickets and requests on the web, and its email integration is solid. The new version is a below-average system monitoring tool, only giving up/down status and a few other metrics.
I have never not had a good experience with their support team - they are professional AND personable, and they go above and beyond in trying to help customers.

We use [Spiceworks Help Desk] to manage technical support tickets for all clients, some of them use our product on tablets, phone, and laptops so [are] important that it runs on almost any device, is web-based and responsive and that allow us to respond to issues effectively and fast, assuring customer satisfaction.
  • Responsive runs on almost any device.
  • Light and easy user interface for both users, administrators, and developers.
  • Easy to set up on your own cloud or using their servers.
  • The fonts and colors could be more light.
  • The UI could be more minimalistic.
  • The setup wizard could be better.
For technical issues, when you have an external customer works awesomely, as well for internal IT ticketing, for development tickets that need more details, there are better tools like Jira Ticketing to manage them since more information is required in order to fix bugs or add new features our customers expect.

End users send in [a] support request to an email address, which is then forwarded to the Spiceworks Help Desk and creates a ticket in the system. Our software support team all receives a notification that a ticket is created and we are able to assign the ticket to ourselves, If a ticket is left unassigned after a chosen time period, we have created a notification so that the manager can go and assign the ticket to the appropriate staff.
  • It helps to multitask, even on the go with the mobile App.
  • We can customize to meet your needs with automated responses, notifications, and templates.
  • Detailed reports allow managers to keep track [of] and analyze data.
  • Allows for a database to store notes helpful for future tickets.
  • Email templates to clients can be a little hard to manage.
  • [The] free version has quite a few [advertisements].
Spiceworks is perfect for an environment that is looking for a low-cost custom-made solution to handle your IT Support requests. It may not work well for an MSP that manages multiple companies and wants to keep them separated.

We recommend Spiceworks Help Desk for smaller clients that are managing their IT issues in-house. Not incredibly intuitive in its business process and flow, it nonetheless is an excellent way for an SMB to start tracking [its] equipment and issues. The reports allow an organization to see what users or systems are creating the most issues and allow you to zero in on how they are trending.
  • Easy to deploy either cloud or on-premise.
  • Access from any device via [a] web browser interface.
  • Integrates with active directory.
  • Reasonably customizable (even the cloud version) for specific use cases.
  • Integration with Spiceworks Community and Partners not always desirable, but there anyway.
  • Does not support ITIL guidelines.
  • 3rd-Party product integration lacks some ability to fine-tune data flow.
We find it most helpful in a single-entity small-business/for-impact organization environment. We have not found it particularly effective when used with organizations supporting larger or on-contract IT teams. Our only exception to this is when budgetary requirements of other commercial products are outside of an organization's budget, and then the totally free aspect of Spiceworks can be particularly helpful.

Spiceworks Help Desk was used in my organization and in other organizations I help maintain as a turnkey ticketing solution for remote tech support of both the primary locations and branch offices.
  • The dashboard is very helpful for a heads up view of the current status of tickets
  • It is very easy to deploy and configure
  • It has a wide user base with online help when you run into configuration issues
  • Easier integration into other platforms
  • The ability to easily backup help desk
  • Better mobile support
Spiceworks [Help Desk] is well suited for small businesses looking for a turnkey solution to handle IT ticketing workflow. I would say that it isn't as well suited for larger businesses where tight integration and reporting is required.

[Spiceworks Help Desk] is used as the primary way for employees to submit requests for IT support, even if they're off site (we went with the cloud solution).
  • Cloud environment requiring nothing more than an email with the right domain is great (no new passwords needed)
  • Excellent knowledge base capabilities
  • Integration with remote administration tools like VNC
  • User portal to act as a kind of IT intranet is VERY flexible
  • When cloud hosted, AD integration isn't the best, it forces users to log in and stops working entirely when on premise services are unavailable and passwords aren't known
  • Additional support for direct deployment of things would be nice, a lot leans on manual GPOs and other things to leverage the additional information made visible by the Spiceworks Agent, for example
  • More workflows available, stuff seen in SolarWinds (tho perhaps this is available now)
I already have recommended [Spiceworks Help Desk], many times. It's such a simple onboarding and very powerful. When you just need SOMETHING this is way, way better than nothing. It has app support, is totally $0 cost and even extensible (especially if used on premise). There's even a lot that can be done on the inventory side which I use along side the cloud piece for inventory purposes alone. It's great to know what's out there (albeit for most accurate info the Spiceworks Agent should be installed).

I implemented Spiceworks Help Desk 9 years ago at my previous employer. I had a team of 5 technicians and prior to me taking the leadership role there, they had no formal way of tracking help desk requests. It was very easy to implement and it had everything I needed to keep the team organized which ultimately improved on our SLA times. I left that organization 5 years ago and came to a new company that had no formal process in place either. I setup Spiceworks the first week I was here and we have used it ever since. We have run over 10,000 tickets through it so far.
  • Creating Tickets from multiple sources
  • Simple Reporting
  • Free Remote Control
  • Great Knowledgebase
  • It does everything I need it to do and pretty well.
If you are looking for a Free or Low Cost Help Desk for a Small to Midsize Team, Spiceworks is a perfect tool. Larger Organizations may need something more robust. We are a shop of 4 techs and close to 500 users and it works very well.

We currently use Spiceworks Help Desk as an internal network monitoring tool, keeping track of new users, new computers, disk space on servers, devices that are down, etc. We used to use the help desk feature for internal IT help ticket requests but no longer use it for that purpose. We are a small business, so it is used across our whole organization.
  • Monitor for devices down or needing updates
  • Satisfy SOC audit requirements
  • Monitor server disk space
  • Monitor printers needing ink/toner
  • Good community support
For a small business with a limited network infrastructure, this is a great, free tool for monitoring and help desk support. In addition, there is a great community of IT specialists who have contributed to its development and are always willing to help out with configuration or issues.

We currently use Spiceworks Help Desk to manage tech tickets for a high school with over 200 employees. It is used school-wide. Currently, it's helping us to track and assign tickets to our limited number of tech staff. It also allows the users to see where the ticket sits in terms of progress.
  • Easy creation of tickets
  • It's easy to add custom fields
  • Adoption is simple
  • Metrics can be tracked
  • There are ads present, it could be cleaner
  • The search function is lacking
  • There is some difficulty upgrading
This works for us in a couple of different ways. It allows users to create their own tickets OR we can input directly. It is very easy to modify tickets if additional information is added. It is an easy end-user experience in creating and updating tickets. The portal also gives a landing page for all users.

We needed a way to centralize tickets as former team only used email. I had used other Spiceworks tools prior so decided to test this out and never looked back after implementing it for all in house issues.
  • Ticketing
  • Custom fields
  • Management of tickets
  • Reporting tool
  • Mobile app
Any SMB that needs an effective ticketing tool should look into Spiceworks before even looking at paid for tools. It has been used here for a multi-state/national company here in the U.S. for over five years and haven't looked back.

Spiceworks is used by IT for Asset information, inventory, and we have tested the helpdesk functions. It performs well and has decent features which will assist in your daily functions. A full-featured ITSM it is not, but it is a wonderful helpdesk offering. It's offered at a great price.
  • Inventory
  • Asset details
  • Helpdesk ticket routing
  • Too many ads on UI
  • Would like to see a local install
Its a good small business platform, but I do not know how well it would fit into a larger enterprise like a SolarWinds. If you are looking for a full ITSM with integration you might need to look at something else. For Helpdesk needs, you can not go wrong with this option from Spiceworks.
They have a great community but I have never called for support.

Spiceworks Help Desk is a great tool used by our large non-profit organization. We primarily use the tool to organize our technology needs. After submitting a request, our technology department is able to complete the request in an efficient, quick manner.
  • Easy to use platform
  • Inventory mangement
  • Efficient alerts
  • Confusing mobile app
  • Outdated interface
  • Attachment feature needs work
Spiceworks Help Desk from the user end is very simple. Once you submit your technology needs, I automatically receive an email stating that my ticket was received and is being processed. It's also helpful to have the VNC feature so that my IT department can automatically VNC into my computer if it's a quick fix. At times Spiceworks Help Desk can be tricky because as someone who's not in a Tech role at my company, it can be hard to describe what I need assistance with writing.

Spiceworks Help Desk is used by the Information Systems department to record all end-user requests for IS support, which includes computer troubleshooting, software installation and assistance, and other, general IS-related requests. Spiceworks helps us by creating a ticket for each user support request; assigning those requests to (or accepting the requests by) the available staff; recording critical system outages; managing communication with users through the ticket itself; and providing basic reporting of ticket-related metrics.
  • It's an ad-supported platform, which lowers the cost to entry.
  • It's capable of processing hashtags in emails, making it easier to convert user emails into tickets through forwarding with hashtags.
  • Is easily customizable to expand the list of available categories, departments, etc.
  • I have always wanted a way to redirect a support request into another IS bin, such as a development task.
  • It's possible to extract the data from the Spiceworks database, but it would be helpful if the process to do so were easier.
  • Improved ability to customize the system generated emails to improve the formatting and company branding.
If an organization lacks a help desk ticketing system or perhaps is currently paying a lot for one that does nothing but track help desk requests, then Spiceworks Help Desk could be a good no/low-cost option. We tried using Spiceworks Help Desk's other features for tracking assets but found it wanting. If you need a solution that offers a help desk tool, asset tracking, software deployment, and other features, then it's probably best to pay for another solution.

We use Spiceworks Help Desk for internal tickets. Most of our users submit support requests through email and Spiceworks picks them up and turns them into tickets. Having a central location for tickets makes sure that requests don't get lost in our individual inboxes.
  • Easy for users to submit tickets
  • Informative ticket update email notifications
  • Smartphone app makes it easy to track tickets on the go
  • Ticket updates are at the bottom of the page and require you to click the "More" link to see them. Sometimes our techs miss the latest notes [on] tickets
  • Not many customization options in the help desk view for techs
  • Searching for old tickets is a little clumsy
Spiceworks Help Desk is a great entry-level help desk package and the price (free) can't be [beaten]. If you only have a few technicians then it might be a good fit for you. Users can submit tickets via email or through the support portal. One feature that we like is the ability to customize the email notifications to suit our needs and include our logo. It makes things look a bit more professional. There aren't a lot of bells and whistles in Spiceworks but what it does, it does well.

My company uses Spiceworks to track our IT inventory and help desk tickets along with the projects we have going in our department. We selected it because it has a broader community than our previous solution and offered better adoption and ease of use for our technicians.
  • Inventory Tracking, its automated scanners can take stock of so much
  • Price, it's F R E E, free!
  • Adoption is super simple, it's easy for admins and users to learn how to use it.
  • Reporting is robust and very easy to use.
  • The user portal is a great tool for end-users.
  • Has a hosted cloud or on-premise option to accommodate all your needs.
  • Add-ons are there, but it can be difficult to find ones that work with your version and for your use-case.
  • Task timers are missing. The ability to track time logged on a ticket without having to enter it arbitrarily after the fact would be great but is sadly lacking.
For someone who is looking to get a ticketing system in place rather than having to sift through troubled users' emails, Spiceworks is perfect and the price is right. It's also a great tool to take inventory and stock of what you have in place and are deploying. It lacks in having detailed metrics because it relies on the technicians to do the time logging.
Within 10 min. of my email to them for support issues, I receive a response, and they've always been very helpful and friendly.

We used it exclusively as a ticketing system to start with. As we have gone on and refined things we are slowly adding to it more and more. At the moment, the main use it still as a ticketing system, but we have recently added inventory information and started using the purchasing section of it. It is being used in the Department of Residence at the moment.
  • The ticketing system is clean and efficient.
  • So many metrics can be tracked.
  • The addition of other components can make it a little clunky.
  • The aesthetic is a bit busy, could be cleaner.
Spiceworks is great for places with small tech budgets. Its free version is great to use, especially as a ticket system to keep things efficient in the office. The inventory section can be super useful in smaller networks. In larger companies, it would be better to use the paid version and have a tech dedicated to running the server.
We have not had to contact anyone for support but when we have questions the community has been very helpful. So I would say it's pretty darn good being we have not had to directly contact the company.

The IT Dept is using Spiceworks. It provides us with a great level of detail right down to the memory in a workstation or laptop. The tool provides us with all the information we need to make informed decisions about hardware and software on any of our devices.
  • Excel Inventory Reports
  • Reports with Hardware details
  • Inventory report interface for creation
  • Scheduling could be more enhanced for automatic e-mails.
The Spice works tool is excellent for companies on a tight budget to get an inventory of assets for hardware and software inventory. The ability for us to customize the reports allows us to create custom-tailored ones for different departments if they want to view all their current hardware inventory.
Spiceworks has been working out of the box, and some of the basic customizations have been successful with just our internal staff handling. We don't have any other issues with the tool. It provides us with the inventory information we want in a quick and concise report in a variety of formats for our team.

I use it to scan our entire network infrastructure. I use it primarily as a tool to inform me of our security posture. It identified gaps such as workstations without antivirus installed and even how many workstations running a particular operating system is on our network. This tool is very cost efficient (free to be exact) that a security practitioner can use to perform risk analysis. I highly recommend this for security administrators who have a limited budget but still need an effective tool to help in identifying security vulnerabilities on their network.
  • Identify workstations with running various operating systems on your network.
  • Identify workstations running various anti-virus programs on your network.
  • Identify workstations and servers running low on storage capacity.
  • Provide dashboards to easily view the current state of your network.
  • Spiceworks uses a lot of system resources and does need room for improvement in this area on Windows systems. Sometimes it can hang and a system reboot will clear up the issue.
  • Spiceworks should be able to be installed on non-Windows systems such as Linux, Apple MAC OS, or other flavors of unix. So it should have a Linux install available for servers running this OS.
  • Running Spiceworks on a workstation along with other programs is not recommended. I would advise installing it on a dedicated server.
Spiceworks is well suited for Information Technology departments who have a limited budget. The free version of this software is one of the best tools to help a security practitioner perform a risk analysis on their network. Other similar tools that are free are limited in the IP ranges that they can scan, but not Spiceworks. I can scan several subnets with this tool. Another cool feature is that I don't have to visit each workstation on our network to obtain information about it. Spiceworks gives me all the information I need right at my own desktop. Spiceworks is well suited for small IT shops and small security departments. Other tools of this capability will cost you thousands.
Because Spiceworks is an easy install, I did not have to reach out to support at all. Any time I need assistance or a question I would just browse their website and get the answers I needed. For instance, the problem with system resources is available on their website and instructions on how to resolve the issue.

We are mostly using Spiceworks to complete auditing and reporting across our network. IT automatically inventories all of our devices and lets us see at a glance the key metrics and measurements that we need to know. We can also put specific notes regarding each device to help us to keep track of things such as hardware faults/fixes/upgrades. We have over 250 devices and counting so it is critical we keep track of these types of things in a central location.
  • Inventory.
  • Reporting.
  • Application deployment.
  • Windows updates.
Spiceworks is a good free suite but there are better paid alternatives that can do a lot more. It is useful for basic inventory but if you want remote management or app/Windows updating and all that sort of thing, Spiceworks can't offer it. It is great for managing smaller environments but as we started to grow, we started to outgrow Spiceworks. It does have some good features such as warranty lookup which has been handy but if you are larger than 100 endpoints and want more features, you would want to look at products with more functionality.
We have actually never used the support. We installed it on-prem and managed it on our own. I do like the Spiceworks Community which I use all the time to research and find fixes for other problems (not Spiceworks related). Spiceworks just seems to work, without any issues so luckily I have not needed to reach out to support.

Spiceworks has been used to assess our domain network of the whole organization. With its free license up to 100 devices has been useful to:
- Understand vulnerability on our network devices
- Patch level of Windows OS
  • Simple web interface.
  • 0-day checks.
  • A lot of "premade script."
  • Better management of scan exclusions.
  • Implement a more modern interface.
It's very useful in:
- asset management like licenses, computers, monitors,...
- OS patch level and 0-day checks
- small to big business
I didn't have a direct support contact, but the KB was very helpful and well explained. There's also a periodic mailing list that advise you of new interesting updates and 0-days. The official forum is full of custom users script that you can use and adapt for your deployment, this is fantastic!

We are using Spiceworks for IT helpdesk ticket submission, reporting, and as a knowledge base repository. We are also using it to track purchases. It is used solely in IT as a way to keep IT issues at the forefront and as a way for users to keep in constant contact with the ticket owner.
  • A great way to track communication on IT tickets between the owner and the user.
  • Ease of use.
  • Reporting.
  • Better integration with SSO.
  • Integration with MFA.

We use the help desk and inventory applications.
  • The help desk allows us to have a ticketing system without breaking the bank.
  • Collaborations with a huge number of vendors.
  • Syncing online help desk with on-site.
The contract function helps you stay up to date with vendor contracts. Also the help desk is a very useful function that continues to get better and it is a free utility along with inventory, remote desktop, network scanning, and a host of other features that help one-man shops to small businesses.

We use Spiceworks in a variety of ways.
It addresses our need to maintain software and hardware inventories, as well as deal with any of our help desk ticketing. We have, in the past used it in order to ensure that products and services are currently online. The other thing that it addresses is our ability to put any questions out to their community and have valuable feedback provided by community members.
  • Strong Community Support.
  • Easy integration.
  • Less unrelated advertising.
  • More articles.
Spiceworks will help you remain relevant and help get you up to speed in the ever changing technical landscape. It is well suited to anyone within the IT community, whether you are a beginner or an old dog. The topping on the cake has to be the Spiceworld Event held annually.
Any time I have had to deal with Spiceworks support, their support team has been thorough, and excellent to deal with.

I would say Spiceworks is very easy to set up. It is no doubt simple but most functional tool. It's clean, clear and polished interface is highly appreciable. It consists of incredibly amazing monitoring features. It is indeed incomparable free IT software with plenty of benefits. It works more than our expectations. It comprises of a variety of customization options with wonderful performance.
  • It is super duper easy to use.
  • It is extremely easy to implement.
  • Best ways for handling tickets.
  • It's could version needs some improvement.
  • The email notifications do not have that much unwanted stuff.
Spiceworks can be used with even low budget. It is well suited to our business and fulfills all the requirements of our company. It is 100% recommended to other customers.
