Dolibarr ERP & CRM is an open-source 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 suite with the main goal of simplicity:

  • Simple to install
  • Simple to use
  • Simple to develop

Dolibarr is available to be installed as a Cloud or On Premise solution, 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 :

All other OS and most Cloud solutions are also supported by the "generic" version.
