Overall Satisfaction with osTicket

osTicket is being used as the ticketing management tool, for customer and internal activities to be accomplished by each member of the company or department.
  • Merging duplicated tickets that are related to the same topic
  • Ticket view permissions
  • Ticket follow up via customer portal
  • Ticket activity resumed dashboard
  • Language package should permit also the translation of the templates
  • It should not require the user to enter his details when creating a new ticket. This should be filled automatically
  • Improve the layout of the ticket messages to facilitate reading and interpretation.
  • There is an enhancement in the communication with customers
  • No more expenses on a paid ticketing tool
  • Improvements in the Internal activities

PRTG Network Monitor, Nmap, SolarWinds IP Address Manager (IPAM)
It is well suited for scenarios where you want to manage both tickets from customers or users and internal activities of the company or department, without spending much money on a paid ticketing tool, because osTicket is free and does well the ticketing management job. It would not be well suited in a big size company where customers should use the portal to open and follow up tickets, because although it has good features, the UI makes it feels like it's unfinished.
