I currently have
A tiny self-written php application based on the “Tiny” micro-framework, plus TWIG and bootstrap, which basically just allows me to CRUD the following customer data:
Name, address, email, phone number, paid until, last contacted, status.
Then a second table of multiple services provided by that customer which is used by a second front-end micro framework where the customer can login and update their service information. Extremely simple database relationship of service_id to master_account_id.
Pretty simple, a few customers right now, going to push to try and get more.
For managing MY customers, I need to start getting sensible and away from home-made CRUD.
SuiteCRM looks perfect.
BUT - before I go down a lengthy learning path, how feasible is it to try and fit it and/or my existing database to each other?
If need be, I can rewrite the mysql queries for my web app; OR - what should an hour or so(?) work cost me to do this?
I’m hoping and guessing that having a large install base that there are plenty of willing hourlies?
Better still, if I can do all this AND use it as a replacement to the $12 a month I’m paying to ProjectBubble, then better yet!
This is a low-cost service aimed at small charities, and if I can keep my costs down I can keep their costs down and everyone’s a winner!
Am I on the right track with SuiteCRM, or a hiding to nothing?
