Monica is your own persona CRM/ Assistant solution

Ever felt trapped while managing dozens of contacts, activities, pets activities, reminders, and follow-up social events like birthdays and so on?

Well, you can easily manage all of this and more with Monica.

Monica is a free, open-source self-hosted personal CRM solution to help you keep tracking all of your social events, activities, work information and strengthen your interaction with your family members.

The system excelled beyond my expectation in contact management, as it keeps track of contacts, allowing the user to add a note, state communication type, set a long call, set the contact basic information, and more.

Monica in action

You can use Monica to remind you of a certain contact's birthday or set a call reminder, tasks, or buy a gift for a specific contact.

It can also help you track your debts and set a reminder for these debts.

Monica comes with a strong journaling system that helps you log and create rich journal entries about all important events and interactions either in general or with a specific contact.

Missing features

I like Monica, but I would like to see it customized with more additional features

  1. Family members: Monica is a great contact manager, but it should get some minor customization for family members, to work as a minimal family management system. Tasks can be used to manage chores, households, and more, but it would be nicer to have specific features for families.
  2. PHR: As a doctor, I see a great opportunity for Monica to perform as a simple personal health record system, where it can log, create health-related specific journals, follow-up doctor/ dentist visits, set medication reminders, and more.
  3. Mobile/ Desktop integration: Monica is a web-based system, but it can still offer more desktop/ mobile integration like push notification, desktop notification, better contact, and calendar integrations.

Technical note

Monica is built using PHP 7.4+ and uses Composer, MySQL, and Redis.

It can be installed on Ubuntu, Debian either from source or using Docker or Vagrant.


Monica is released under Affero General Public License (AGPL) v3.0.
