What is Open source?

Open source primarily means that software source code is available, allowing the users to make the changes to the source to modify the functionality. Many different open source licenses differ in the restrictions imposed on the distribution of derived services and applications they build.

Open Source is not free

Open Source is not free!

Often users mistake open source for free (no license fees). Open source affords the flexibility to modify source code, but the costs of hosting, maintaining, supporting, and upgrading the application push the overall cost to exceed the cloud-based CRM costs.

If you are looking to start with a free CRM solution, try our feature-rich Vtiger One Pilot edition. It is free forever, and you do not need to submit a credit card.

Use Cases for Open source CRM

If you are looking to make changes to the core product and build a new product you wish to distribute, consider open-source CRM.

For example, if you are looking to build a vertical CRM solution that you want to develop and distribute, then an open-source CRM solution will be an attractive choice to build on.
