As its getting into holiday season here at SalesAgility and 2017 is coming to an end. We wanted to take this time to reflect on what a year it has been and show a sneak peek at some of the exciting new projects that are in our 2018 pipeline.
We reached over 800,000 downloads, making SuiteCRM one of world’s most popular CRM applications. Read that again. "One of the world's most popular CRM applications" - regardless of it being open source.
- Community growth:
The community grew to over 82,000 users!
SuiteCRM is now available in more languages then ever before. At the moment the project is being translated in over 50 languages, and a third of them are at 97% or higher completion rate.
- Launch of SuiteASSURED:
The most exciting news since we launched the first version of SuiteCRM! SuiteASSURED is a discrete build of SuiteCRM created to provide surety to enterprise-class customers and other large organisations installing, customising and driving value from the open source SuiteCRM software application.
- SuiteCRM LTS:
Another great addition! With SuiteCRM with LTS (Long Term Support) we commit to maintaining major version stability for a longer period of time.
- Extended Release Cycle:
As part of our re-factoring for 7.10 we re-evaluated our length of time for releases from 3 to 6 months allowing us more time to design, develop, and polish our production releases!
- SuiteCRM 8:
A UI redesign of the SuiteCRM application is currently in the works. More on that throughout the year.
- The beginning of our International Expansion Programme:
We’ll start with the International Expansion Programme, with the opening of offices in Spain.
- New SuiteCRM Website:
A fantastic new website is scheduled to launch very soon.
- Community Projects:
We are looking into creating community based projects in the coming year – with one soon to be announced.
That’s quite a list! As people are getting ready to visit family and winding down for some well needed R & R the same goes for us. We have just released 7.10 beta 3 before the festive holidays and will return in the New Year well rested and raring to go with a beta 4 release. Over the 3 week festive period there will be less of a response on Github and the forums whilst the team are filling their bellies with mince pies and enjoying a few glasses of mulled wine.
In the meanwhile, feel free to help us out with testing of the 7.10 beta 3. You can find more info about this in the SuiteCRM forum.
Thanks for all your contributions, and we’re looking forward to work together with you in 2018 too! Happy Holidays!
