Looking for low cost/free application solutions for small businesses

NyblizzardNyblizzard Posts: 327Member ■■■■□□□□□□
Greetings yall,

I've just been offered the opportunity to build a couple of small business offices (30-60 people) in the South Florida region and I am looking for ideas of the different software packages I can offer them. For example I was thinking about implementing some sort of open source ticketing system, storage solutions, maybe a virtualization option.

Basically anything that can be used on a smaller scale to better a business

    Spiceworks has some nice features, I am also a big fan of FreePBX.
    Thanks, Tom

    Low cost is often cheaper than "free". For small business, I'd look at public cloud SaaS offerings like gSuite and Office 365. The advantage here is low administrative overhead and a lot of features. Potentially, you could set something like this up, and not have to provision a single server or worry too much about provisioning desktops or SOEs or all that fun stuff.
