View Full Version : Seeking Office Management Software

09-20-2005, 10:16 AM
Hi there,

I've been this online office management system hyperoffice.com for a while now & I never liked the program b/c of all the bugs, it wasn't designed properly (user interface) & tech support always blames us (not just me, even my VA & techie) for their issues, plus they don't return e-mails when one complains or asks for a credit for all the problems.

It even went down last night & no apology or anything when I wrote to them.

I'm looking for an Open Source program that I can use instead & put on my server & have a programmer tweak if necessary. I only deal with MySQL/PHP

Any suggestions?

Here are the features I need...

groups & permissions
file documents


Thanks & have a great day!

Maybe some CRM software will do the job, sugarcrm.com looks good.

I have used phprojekt in the past..

It has group calendar with resource booking, time card system, project management, request tracker, mail client, mutual filesystem, contact manager, mail client, forum, chat, notes, todos, voting system, reminder and more

Its not perfect but it may be worth a look

It wasnt that I didn't like it.

We used it primarily for the calendar function / group management but there were limitations as to how that worked, but nothing we couldn't live with. I think there is a demo on the phprojekt site so you can have a play around

Ok, but a programmer can tweak the code right?
