Cyclos update

The Cyclos project is growing rapidly. In August this year we reached 100.000 downloads for the Cyclos 3 version. The Cyclos 4 communities service, that has been launched last June, has already 250 communities.

Cyclos 4 PRO
The Cyclos team has been working full time on the development of Cyclos4. The Cyclos 4 PRO version is on schedule, and will be released by the end of this year, together with a brand new mobile app. This will be announced in the next newsletter.

Cyclos 4 PRO

A commercial version will be available the 4rd quarter of 2013. This will be announced through our newsletter. We are still looking for social and commercial investors to invest in Cyclos 4. If you are interested please contact

- License costs: The Cyclos 4 PRO will be offered against start-up conditions that allow new users easy entry. Fees will only be charged once the system exceeds a certain amount of users and/ or generates enough commercial profit.
- Projects with a social mission with the lack of resources can apply for free version (details will be given in this newsletter).

License Cyclos

The license of Cyclos 4 will not be Open Source like the previous versions of Cyclos were (Cyclos 3 and lower). The main reason is that the development of financial software requires considerable financial resources. In the past we were fortunate to receive grants from several institutions (the Dutch Government, IDB, DOEN), but presently there is not sufficient funding available. Our current investors suggested a business model that allows the development costs to be shared among the larger users (that can afford it financially). STRO is working towards a business plan with a commercial approach, which at the same time will allow social initiatives to benefit from a free version.


- The Cyclos 3 version will be maintained (bug fixes only) and will remain Open Source.
- Cyclos 4 will be free for organisations with a social mission and inadequate financial resources.

Release schedule

- May 2013: Online Demo.
- June 2013: Launch Cyclos 4 Community service.
- End 2013: First Cyclos 4 PRO version.
