excellent plugin I have tried it in a version for 2 years and I think it works excellent, The improvements that have been made to the latest version greatly improve the system. Besides, the support is excellent by supportcandy. Thanks a lot

This plugin has a broad range of functionality and exceeded our expectations. SupportCandy’s staff are excellent and very helpful. I would strongly recommend this plugin to anyone.

I asked for new plugin functionalities and they implemented them quickly.. Great ticket system plugin and great support!

We have set up our support site completely within 1 week. We got answers all of our questions, support members are really kind.
There are some little deficiency but I’m sure these will be corrected in future releases.

I played with other stand alone helpdesk software, and looked at other WP plugins. I chose this because it seemed to suit my needs. I started out as just wanting a trouble ticket system. I purchased the addons because I needed Email Piping. I ended up using most of the addons. I had a problem early on caused by another plugin. I opened a ticket and got a pretty quick response. I am now using most of the plugins from the addon package. Great stuff.

I am now working for a while with this plugin and I need to admit, my team and my customer are excited about it. Easy to install, in the free version basically everything you need and easy to extend to fair prices. Only downside, the documentation is not 100% up to date yet. But a good customer service make it up for it. I can absolute recommend it.
