With one exception you can create all you nee with a list. I would suggest you start with the Issues list as a template as it includes most of the stuff you are after.
>From here you would add columns for company, caller, category etc, if necessary rename some of the existing columns to make their use clear.
Add some views to filter the list by category so staff can see just their queue.
The issues list has some inbuilt magic that will help you out. Firstly there is a setting to make it notify someone when an issue is allocated. second it allows you to maintain a 'log' of previous comments to help track resolution, especially if the call is moved between users. Finally it has reports to help analyse the data captured.
If you want a more sophisticated mechanism you could look at using Infopath as a form mecanism submitting to a sharepoint forms library
