Welcome to Simple Groupware & CMS !

Simple Groupware & CMS is an open source enterprise groupware that offers email, calendaring, contacts, tasks, document management, project management, synchronization with Outlook and cell phones, full-text search, extensions and many more.

Simple Groupware is a free web based groupware solution written in PHP that combines standards like RSS, iCalendar, vCard, IMAP, POP3, SMTP, CIFS, CSV, WebDAV, LDAP and SyncML under one platform.
Unlike other groupware software, Simple Groupware contains the programming language sgsML to enable the quick customization and creation of powerful web applications. Simple Groupware is Free Software, released under the GNU GPLv2 License.

All features are available in the open source package, there is no commercial edition and there are NO restrictions on the deployment (like maximum number of users or servers). Also support, updates and documentation are available for free.


Why Open Source? I like vendor lock-ins and expensive licenses ...
