CitrusDB is an open source customer database application that uses PHP and a database back-end (currently MySQL).

This software can keep track of customer information, CRM, services, products, billing, and customer service information. The program will run on any PHP enabled web server.

This software is now in beta. There is still alot of room for tweaking code and making things more streamlined, a whole lot of room. The code of CitrusDB might even be able to be used now for something other than to play around with, but since it's beta I won't recommend using it in production yet. For long time users, please note that the initial login name has changed from "test" to "admin" now!

Here are some key features of "CitrusDB":
modular functions to allow new pieces to work along side base functions
security and password access to database on a per user level
track modifications to customer records made by the database user
keep general info, mailing address, billing address, and billing info about each customer
able to assign multiple (unlimited?) services or products to a customer record
add custom fields for services/product information
trouble tickets / individual and department notifications
import / export feature to send billing data back and forth to card processing software
import from online order data (or online order component)
search by specified fields
easy to add and modify services/products
ability to invoke remote commands to talk to other servers for billing queries, user lookups, etc.
bill credit card and invoice for monthly, setup fee, onetime charges, 6 month, yearly, etc. billing cycles
ability for different billing types to be assigned to each product or service that one customer has

Works with PHP 4.0 or greater and MySQL 3.23 or greater register_globals must be turned Off in your php.ini

What's New in This Release:
New session handling that uses the database instead of the PHP's built-in system was implemented.
A new feature that saves account activation or credit card data files to the server for automatic processing by external scripts was included, and a table for custom payment modes was added.
