SohoOS – All Tools For Managing A Small Business (And.. For Free)

Whether you are a freelancer or a small/big team, using tools to keep biz-related data under control is usually a good idea for everyone.

SohoOS is an all-in-one application that comes with lots of features for managing a business online.

It is free-to-use and consists of tools like project, document, customers and contact management, communication, invoicing, and more.

Once registered, a friendly dashboard that displays the latest activities, quick links, notes and activities welcomes you (this page can easily become the start page for many users).



The first thing would be adding your contacts: contacts, vendors, clients and leads as many other components of the app work integrated with them. They can be imported from the contacts in your e-mail service or from a .CSV file.

For the leads, besides adding them manually, they can be collected with a "contact form widget (named LeadsWidget)" that can be embedded into any web page.


Any number of projects can be created, tasks and milestones with deadlines can be defined and each of them can be assigned to users.

Users can also attach documents for the project and a progress chart helps viewing if things are performing all ok.

Invoicing & Sales Tools

SohoOS has the features for creating invoices (with a custom look), charging your clients and tracking the process.

Once an invoice is generated, optionally, the payment can be collected by the platform as well via PayPal or credit card (and no merchant account is needed).

Also, you can define the products/services of the business and create/send quotes, sales and purchase orders accordingly.



For a multi-user environment, managing documents can be hard as they should be reachable by everyone or only some users but should be kept in the same place for an easier access, back up, etc.

The documents module accomplishes all these with ease. Add as much documents as you want to the system, assign them to users or groups and even decide whether they should be available internally or externally.


This is a premium feature of SohoOS but pretty impressive.

Using the platform, you can make calls, send SMSs, emails and even faxes for a good price by just purchasing credits.

Also, a built-in email client keeps you focused by displaying any incoming e-mails from a given account.

Other Features

Besides these core features, SohoOS offers more like offering ways for improving the visibility of a business by letting them create a landing-page and collect leads or with the "Freelance Area" where businesses can post and get projects.

All sound good? Then you can give this complete and free business management tool a try.

    I have an account there. Altough not bullet proof yet, its a great way for me to handle my contacts, hold cheap calls and generate an invoice once in a while. Most important: most of the apps are free.

    We are using SohoOS and while it’s working it has some annoying bugs. Support for a free account is zero, up to now all attempts we made to report issues were not taken in account. The functionality seems “almost there”.

    I saw it advertised on this site and was looking for invoice and project management package.

    It’s nice and simple to use but DOES NOT HAVE PROJECT MANAGEMENT!

    Disappointing. I’m going to have to look for something else now that combines what I need.

    Yes, that seems to be a “coming soon” feature.
