What Dolibarr Does
From Dolibarr Open Source ERP CRM Wiki
Dolibarr ERP & CRM is an opensource and free software package to manage companies, freelancers or foundations. We can say Dolibarr is an ERP or CRM (or both depending on activated modules).
It's an OpenSource project built by the addition of modules (you only enable the features you need), on a WAMP, MAMP or LAMP server (Apache, Mysql, PHP for all Operating Systems). Dolibarr was developed to try to offer an ERP and CRM software whose main goal is to be simple:
- Simple to install
- Simple to use
- Simple to develop
Note that Dolibarr is also available with auto-installers for users with no technical knowledge to install Dolibarr and all its prerequisites (Apache, Mysql, PHP) with just one package. Those packages are :
- DoliWamp, an auto-exe installer for Windows users.
- DoliDeb, an auto installer for Linux Debian/Ubuntu users.
- DoliRpm, an auto installer for Linux RedHat/Fedora/OpenSuse/Mandriva/Mageia users.
All other OS and most Cloud solutions are also supported by the "generic" version.
