Around 8 years ago customer demand for a web interface to our help desk software led us to develop a very basic classic ASP solution.

It did what it was supposed to do but the interface was static, had an outdated look, and the user interaction was quite different than that of the Mouse Tracks Windows client (primary tool that the Help Desk technicians use).
