Go way beyond basic help desk ticketing

The basic function of all help desk software is the ticketing system where the initial logging, classifying, assignment and documentation takes place.  HelpMaster has all the features to assist your team to log, track and manage all calls and support operations, and a whole lot more for when you're ready to move into process and workflow.

Logging new tickets is fast and simple, with a modern, intuitive drag 'n drop interface and many time-saving features to get your work done.
