We want to show you our first step at being an all-encompassing toolkit for fast moving teams. We’re calling them “Operating Systems,” because Directus empowers you to build comprehensive software that can tie together separate tools and dramatically improve organizational efficiency.
Today, we’re releasing AgencyOS as the first example of a purpose-built system to show off the incredible functionality that you can build in record time with Directus. It is a great example of the composable architecture that Directus enables for your organization.
AgencyOS includes a template that can be applied with our directus-template-cli command line tool, which will set up your Directus project with data models, roles, dashboards, and more. It also includes a public website template and a user-facing web application with authentication and role based permissions.
Running a digital agency demands more than just delivering projects. It's often the intangibles like project workflows and communication that define successful client relationships. However, setting up an effective "operating system" usually means juggling multiple rigid tools or investing significant time and resources developing your own custom solutions.
AgencyOS is designed to address this issue, providing everything needed to either kickstart your agency or enhance your company’s existing solution. Built on trusted, extensible tooling - Directus powers the backend and Nuxt is used for the frontend.
Track Your Relationships and Projects
AgencyOS ships with a Customer Relationship Management (CRM) tool to manage your entire workflow – from initial contact, proposal creation, and pipeline management to daily project and task handling. Utilize customizable features like project templates to simplify planning and execution of larger, complex projects.
A Dedicated Client Portal
Allow your clients an easy way to self-serve – access project updates, pay invoices seamlessly, and provide necessary files and information, ensuring a smooth project flow.
Your New Agency Website
When there's so much to do when setting up an agency, building a stellar website shouldn't take long. Use the Agency OS website template to showcase your work and convert visitors into leads and booked meetings. Customize it effortlessly with your brand colors, logos, and fonts through a simple theme config file. Directus acts as your Headless CMS to support live previews and content versioning.
