Epesi Open Source
Programming Competition


The subject of this programming competition is to create a working module for EPESI BIM

Epesi BIM - Business Information Manager - is an open source web application written in PHP which runs on the LAMP stack. Epesi BIM is developed with a custom written framework called "Epesi", which allows a rapid application development as it handles many tedious background tasks. Epesi has a modular architecture and adding new functionality is as simple as installing new module by clicking in the integrated Epesi Store, or by writing your own, custom code using just few lines of code.

You can see how quickly a working web application can be created in Epesi BIM by following the Developer’s Tutorial and reviewing "Hello World" module.

Epesi BIM is distributed as complete, ready to use application with default set of modules giving the end user CRM like functionality. On top of this Epesi BIM starter kit ERP level applications can be easily built with very little effort and at a very low cost compared with commercial packages. Epesi BIM is being developed since 2007 by Janusz Tylek. It is used by thousands of businesses around the world, with over 6000 businesses registered their licenses with us. Because of its popularity it has been translated into many languages.

Epesi BIM is available for free under MIT license.

It can be downloaded under Business & Enterprise / Enterprise / CRM section from SourceForge
