You are reading the documentation for an outdated Corteza release. 2023.9 is the latest stable Corteza release.


Corteza is an open source, self-hosted cloud-based platform for your work. It provides a wide ecosystem of a Unified Workspace (like Google G Suite), Enterprise Messaging (like Slack), a low code environment for rapidly and securely delivering records-based management solutions, and CRM (like Salesforce).

Corteza is built upon modern technologies, using Golang as a back-end and Vue.js as a front-end. The platform is secure with a powerful RBAC access control facility, that allows you to configure your users just the way you want to!

Corteza aims to be indisputably trustworthy in its motivations and its approach to design, development and maintenance of the platform. Organisations should feel that their chosen digital work platform is always under their control, always protected and always developed in their best interests.
