About OrangeHRM

OrangeHRM Open Source is a free open source HR software developed by OrangeHRM, a software company based in Secaucus, New Jersey. The company was founded in 2005 and released the first beta version of the software in January 2006. Two months later OrangeHRM 1.0 was officially released with a lot of cool features like personnel information management, ESS, reports modules and authority levels for users. Since then OrangeHRM features have evolved, bringing new modules and enhancements that helped the project gain a lot of popularity. In 2007 it was ranked the fourth best solution in the category of enterprise projects and received three BOSSIE awards in 2008, 2012 and 2013.

As an alternative to the free open source version, the company also launched a professional and enterprise solution that offers many more OrangeHRM features and modules like personnel time management, performance and training, travel and expense tracker or disciplinary tracking. OrangeHRM open source is dedicated to startup with up to 20 employees, while the professional solution targets small businesses and organizations with greater HR demands. OrangeHRM Enterprise is dedicated to large organizations with international activity.
