Plazma or Plazma ERP & CRM was a free open-source enterprise resource planning (ERP) application with additional customer relationship management (CRM) features.

Product history

On July 1, 2005 Ukranian developer Oleh Hapon began a SourceForge project for open-source Plazma.[2] A series of beta releases were made on SourceForge in 2005 and 2006 before the first stable release — as version 0.1.3 — was made on May 14, 2007.[1] Work has quietly continued on the project since then, with the latest version 1.0.2 released in July 2012 and its application server Plazma Server Lite receiving an upgrade in December 2012.

As of May 2021, almost nine years have passed with any developments. The project is presumably abandoned.


The main features of Plazma included[3]:

  • account management
