Welcome to TealCRM!  The open source customer relationship management (CRM) software for small business.  TealCRM was built in 2014 using CodeIgniter 2.x, which is a project of the British Columbia Institute of Technology.  Originally, TealCRM was delivered as a free Saas solution that was eventually closed down in 2017 by the original developer Eligeo CRM , which is the company I founded in 2008.

It’s now 2018, a year after my company closed down the project.  The reasons were fairly obvious.  It didn’t fit within the product portfolio of what the company was selling.  It only made business sense.  That didn’t change my goal of trying to help small businesses with a CRM that was for them.  That’s why we decided to release the source code entirely under MIT License for all to access.

I’ve also decided to take this project under my wing as a personal project so that it won’t conflict with the work being done at my company, Eligeo.  This doesn’t mean Eligeo won’t have a role to play with implementing it for clients but it certainly means that the stewardship of this project belongs to those that are part of a greater community of developers and contributors.

Stay tuned to our blog to stay up to date on the latest happenings.  I’ll be keeping the blog up to date along with our Github repo as well.

If you’re looking to contribute to the project or just want to reach out, you can send me an email to derek@tealcrm.com.
