Try Hesk. Works great... and it's free.

I’m using Hesk and have no issues. I needed a very simple solution and it does the trick.

A few months ago I started working for a municipal government as a desktop support tech, and the IMS we use right now, Hesk, is really terrible. It gets the job done in terms of keeping track of tickets, but there are next to no features. There is no AD sync, so we have to input all information for every ticket. There are no self service tools, so we have to unlock accounts and reset passwords in AD.

We are currently using HESK at my office. It's not that robust, but its free and has all the features we needed.

We use Hesk as well and it works pretty well. It's nothing more than a ticket system and knowledge-base but it's clean, simple and easy to use. I didn't install or configure it so I can't say how simple or complex those aspects of it are.
