I would love for this to become a sticky thread.
Please share what you can about your production instance of SuiteCRM.
Versions of PHP MySQL/Maria etc…
What is your instance being used for?
I am running on a vultr VPS
with a DB size of ~30GB
system built from minimal CentOS
- CentOS Linux release 7.2.1511 (Core)
- Apache/2.4.6 (CentOS)
- PHP 5.4.16
2 Versions of SuiteCRM running 7.4
One heavily customized and actually comes from SugarCRM 6.5 Community and slowly upgraded over time to its current 7.4.
The data was migrated from a paid for CRM with limited functionality. I could tell it was built from VTIGER.
Another newer instance installed directly from SuiteCRM 7.4 and currently slowly being customized.
The companies I work for use the CRM to track clients, payments dates (custom module) and task that need to be completed for that client.
We track calls, emails, notes, documents for the clients etc.
We also have a newer company branching off doing similar work only now we are using the Accounts section along with contacts.
Our sales agents use the leads modules to enter data with many custom fields, I have altered the lead convert page to only convert to a contact with a custom form. And then we have someone verify that data because sales agents are always looking for shortcuts.
My original SuiteCRM form SugarCRM was first ran on a CentOS 6.5 box on a dedi over 2 years ago. It has been migrated maybe ~5 times. Overall very satisfied with its functionality. Any errors I get are typically my fault with configuration except for some glitches on previous version. Particularly with the introduction of the Responsive Theme.
If you have any specific question about my Production Environments feel free to ask. Please share your Production instances.
Also, if i figured we went with lets say SugarCRM Ultimate, at 150/user/month
At the begining we would of been at 5-10 users so that woudl of cost us already
To our current usage of 30+ users would run us $4500 a month. that is whole salaries being saved and people being employed from that alone.
We also save tons of money operating our own open source asterisk call center software, saving at the least 30 per user per month. With typical paid for call center functionality though we would of been looking at 75 per user per month for phones alone.
So because of just phone and crm cost being open source. Currently I can say our company is saving
75(phones) +150(CRM) / user per month
225x 30+ users = 6,750/month
20,250 per quarter
81k a year!
Those are real numbers. Not to mention the license cost we save using libre office, samba4 etc. I use open source alot
