First created in 2002, Dolibarr has earned some coveted awards. It won first place in the Management Company category of at the Les Trophées du Libre contest in 2003, the Sourceforge project of the week in 2004 and again in 2015, and the following year as well.

This free and open source business software suite can be installed from the auto-installer file available for Linux, Windows, and Mac. It is intended for use by busy business people with no technical knowledge, and it is straightforward to install the program along with all of its prerequisites.

If you have a business management need that isn’t being met, you can set up the program and only install the module for the one feature you want it to perform. Leave all of the other modules untouched until the day finally arrives when you need it. It’s a very creative and intuitive solution for busy people who do not want to be bothered with whistles and bows that they do not need or want.

Best of all- as your business grows- and your business management needs evolve, you can activate additional modules as you need them.
