At my company we are going through a process to figure out what CRM system we want, and we also want to upgrade our Microsoft Dynamics GP instance. We've already paid for Microsoft Dynamics GP, so that's a done deal and we are going to go with an overpriced CRM solution. It's out of my hands. Still though, I wanted to see if there were any open source alternatives to Microsoft Dynamics GP or Microsoft Dynamics CRM that a start up company could use that didn't cost an arm and a leg.
I found one called Dolibarr! From their page:
Dolibarr ERP & CRM is a modern and easy to use web software to manage your business (contacts, invoices, orders, products, stocks, agenda, emailings, etc...).Here are some screen shots:
It's an opensource and free software designed for small companies, foundations and freelances. You can install and use it as a standalone application, or online on a mutualized or dedicated server to use it from anywhere. Dolibarr is also available on ready to use Cloud services.
More screen shots can be found here.
If you are just starting a business and want to save money on software, you might want to give Dolibarr a try instead of forking over thousands of dollars to Microsoft. Just saying.
