    Hi, thanks for your question.

    https://github.com/oroinc/platform – OroPlatform (Business Application Platform) is built based
    on Symfony framework. And roughly speaking it greatly expands functionality to make development of custom business applications easier and faster, offers unlimited flexibility and a lot of features out of the box.
    We can consider it as the basis and starting point for building any other applications. Whether it’s a CMS system, an internet store, etc.

    Actually, OroPlatform is a composer package that requires an application to initialize and run it. https://github.com/oroinc/platform-application is an example of such application which simplifies initial project setup and configuration.

    https://github.com/oroinc/crm – OroCRM is Client Relationship Management which is actually build on OroPlatform. Is its logical transformation into a system created to satisfy all the requirements of CRM system. In other words it is fully functional solution, with a huge number of features that right now can be used in business processes.

    OroCRM is a composer package that requires an application to initialize and run it. https://github.com/oroinc/crm-application is an example of such application which simplifies initial project setup and configuration.

    So the right choice for you is https://github.com/oroinc/crm-application. Please follow instruction from repository Readme file.

    If you have any questions about the installation or customisation, do not hesitate to ask them, we will be happy to help.

    Thanks for feedback! It’s more clear now.

    But, for example, If I have already some Symfony application created and working. Can I integrate the “oro/crm” composer package in some already created Symfony application? or it needs some more configurations to make it works?

    Hello, spyout98!

    I’d like to jump in and share a new article we’ve just published:
    https://oroinc.com/doc/orocrm/current/architecture
    It may shed some light on how you can use Oro packages as a part of your custom application.

    Afaik, you can add oro/crm as a dependency to your existing Symfony application. That should bring all the OroCRM features onboard. You might want to check out the OroCRM docs on installation:
    https://oroinc.com/doc/orocommerce/current/install-upgrade
    and configuration:
    https://oroinc.com/doc/orocommerce/current/configuration-guide
    to see if you need anything specific to be configured.

    Regards, Svitlana (OroDocumentation)
