SPBAS ("SolidPHP Business Automation Software") is a culmination of work started back in 2006. Since then, the idea has evolved and been built, re-built and torn apart several times. The final result was made available as SPBAS v1 in July 2009.
The objective with SPBAS is to provide a unified system to manage user interaction, starting with sales emails, moving through to purchase, and finishing with support and feedback opportunities. SPBAS is designed to automate the entire business workflow.
In order to achieve this, SPBAS is built on the second generation m3 Platform, an entirely modular system which has been designed to scale and not focus on any one industry.
The main featured modules that were initially shipped with SPBAS included:
- V2 m3 Core
- User Management
- Customer Management
- Product Management
- Order Management
- Package Management
- Order Form
- Client Area
By V3, these had expanded to include:
- Email Marketing & Mailing Lists
- Integrated Reseller / Distributor Support
