SuiteCRM is a software fork of the popular customer relationship management (CRM) system SugarCRM. It became popular when SugarCRM decided to stop development of its open source version. It is a free and open source alternative application, and is based on the last open-source release, but ships with additional modules. It was released on October 21, 2013 as version 7.0, and provides upgrade paths for existing SugarCRM users.
