Hi, I know this isn't specifically a linux issue but I was wondering...

Does anyone know of any free, open-source client management software that's good for freelancers? (I'm a web developer)

Just a fairly basic PHP/MySQL solution for keeping track of client details, jobs and invoices. Possibly invoice generation too, but not essential.

I don't know if CRM is the right thing or not? Most of these seem to be sales based (not appropriate to my needs). I've looked at Tryton (http://www.tryton.org/en/) but that's a full-scale ERP and seems very complex.

Thanks in advance!

Depending on what you mean by 'jobs' - if you mean individual jobs rather than tracking progress - gnucash will probably do all you need - though I know it is not exactly what you may have thought of for such a task.

Hey John, thanks very much, you're right I'd not have thought of that but it's a great idea!

Installed it this morning and I'm starting to explore it's features, looks like a great piece of software! Although it's not necessarily ideal for my needs it is at least functional for now to enable me to keep a track of my client (and personal) accounts.

In the long run though I would like a piece of software that I can track individual jobs, set milestones and possibly produce reports, gantt charts etc. so I'm open to other suggestions from people.


Many thanks!
