YapCRM uses a combination of what is cost effective and what is time effective. We have seen the issues of reliance on open source solutions, frequently a hack on one site can open the door on tens of thousands of other sites. As such we try strike a balance between cost, easy of use and security.


We use Adobe Coldfusion despite the high cost, it is an enterprise level rapid development solution, the original MySpace was made in less than 2 weeks using Coldfusion.

The excellent intergration with PDF, Flash and Office products mean we can create solutions much faster and cheaper than we could in other solutions such as PHP.


MySQL database has become the world's most popular open source database because of its high performance, high reliability and ease of use. MySQL was good enough for Facebook, thats good enough for us.
