Open Source Applications

We are impressed by the high quality open source applications that exist, and their utility to small businesses.  In fact, many of these open source applications are web-based applications, and are thus perfectly suited to solve many frequent small business issues.

Some examples?  Sure.  Say you are a small business and have some remote workers.  You need a centralized place to track customer data, phone calls, follow ups, and so on.  As opposed to buying a commercial desktop application, installing it onto each computer, and then opening up VPN access to your network, simply use SugarCRM.  SugarCRM is a web-based CRM application.  Another example is say you want to manage the content within your website without paying a web developer their hourly rate.  Simply install Drupal CMS.  That way, you have complete control over the content of your website through your browser.  

Those are just two small examples of web based open source applications, all of which are free to download and install.  We can help you assess which application would be a good fit for you, and also install and configure it on your web server (or host if for you if you need).
