NetHelpDesk uses a Microsoft SQL Server database. This is suitable for a larger number of concurrent users and gives better performance over WANs. It requires either MS SQL Express (a free cut down version of MS SQL server system) or MS SQL Server.

PC CPU and RAM specs

NetHelpDesk runs on any 32/64bit platform, with a minimum of 2GB of RAM in any Windows environment, including up to Server 2012, with all versions of SQL Server from 2000 up to and including 2012, and also Exchange 2007, 2010 & 2013, and Office 365.

There are no .dlls or reliance on .Net so installation and upgrades are straightforward.

There is no need to install the software on each PC, just make shortcuts to the executables in a shared folder on a server.

Email Interface and Escalation Process

The escalation process allows new requests, overdue requests or other significant request life cycle events to be alerted to technicians or managers via a 'tool-tray' icon or via E-mail/SMS. Emails are also sent to end users via an SMTP server.

Emailed requests from end users are sent through your email to a NetHelpDesk POP3 mailbox. The email is examined and a new request added to the database. The email is acknowledged and technicians alerted. End users can give updates via email and satisfaction surveys and attachments are processed.

WEB Interface

The Web Interface to NetHelpDesk runs as a CGI program. This runs on an MS IIS web server. The Web browser can be any browser, including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari and Internet Explorer. A mobile interface is also shipped that is optimised for smaller screens of any Smartphone, including iPhone, BlackBerry and Android.
