On the first of April the stable version of OrоCRM was finally released. Established by the Mаgentо founding fathers (Yoav Kutner, Dmitriy Soroka, Jary Carter) today OrоCRM is seeking to overtake leadership in the market of free business applications.
Currently OrоCRM offers two distinct products which are based on the Symfоny 2 framework: CRM and Oro Business Application Platform (OroBAP).
OrоBAP is an add-on to the standard symfоny framework that allows developers to completely customize CRM to their customers’ needs.
«OroBAP is based on the Symfony 2 framework. If you know Symfony, you already know 80% of OroBAP and can start building applications immediately»
It is also expected that the platform will grow into a real marketplace of add-ons for OrоCRM.
The main OrоCRM features:
