An ticket system (also issue tracking system, trouble ticket system, support Ticket or incident ticket system) is a computer software or web based package that manages and maintains lists of issues, as needed by an organization. Ticket systems are commonly used in an organization’s to create, update, and resolve reported customer issues.

There are 3 versions of tickets systems, paid version, custom version(mainly build for one company) and the open source version. Because we dont want to pay a lot of money for an ticket system, we use the open source versions.

I don’t agree that you compare a ticket system with an issue tracking system. The latter is something that is mostly used in development projects by the test departments (e.g. Mantis, Bugzilla).

Update: eTicket is dead as it says in the forum announcements. So remove it from your list

“An ticket”? A ticket, surely.

You missed off Accord5’s Trellis Desk, which is by far the best free support ticket system available.
