In a world where business management is increasingly digitized and automatized, having an integrated management system (ERP), a customer relationship management tool (CRM), and a manufacturing resource planning solution (MRP) has become indispensable.

Many companies use expensive solutions like Cegid or EBP. These solutions, while effective, often require costly cloud subscriptions and license renewals that strain the budget. This is where Dolibarr stands out as a viable, flexible, and cost-effective alternative.

Many companies already use solutions like CEGID or EBP. Even if the quality is not up to the initial investment, they cope with it by thinking of protecting themselves from future expenses. Until… the publishers of these proprietary softwares found a solution: their old software reaching their end of life, they now offer monthly subscriptions for cloud solutions at prohibitive costs. This time, the racket is no longer even hidden.

So what alternative? With free software it is possible to regain total control over its management softwares.

Case Study: Transition from CEGID to Dolibarr

Many clients have already chosen to switch from expensive proprietary solutions to Dolibarr, saving thousands of euros each year. Here is a concrete example:

Company Alpha:

  • Initial Situation: Used a proprietary ERP with annual fees of €6,750 (Ex Tax).
  • Transition to Dolibarr: Within just 2 weeks, Dolibarr was installed with exactly the necessary modules, data from the old ERP was migrated to Dolibarr solution and employees were trained to be immediately comfortable with it.
  • Results: From the first year, the termination of the old ERP’s subscription covered the installation, migration and training costs for Dolibarr. In subsequent years, the cost of Dolibarr hosting represents only 1% of the amount offered by EBP, which represents a 99% saving on the €6,780 subscription. And above the company regained control over its business management with Dolibarr, which turns out to be a more robust, more reliable system and more adapted solution to their specific needs.
