Open-Source ERP Gains Users Jorg Janke did not set out to write open-source ERP software. But like many small startup application vendors, he found the traditional path to success blocked by sales and marketing costs.
Janke says he has no idea how many companies are using the software, called Compiere. But for the part of his business that keeps him afloat?paid support contracts?the response rate so far is worse than what spam gets. Of more than 600,000 downloads of Compiere, 50 customers have signed support contracts. And those contracts start at $1,500 for 10 people per year?a pittance compared with the license fees charged by commercial ERP vendors, which charge anywhere from 10 percent to 25 percent of those fees per year for maintenance and support.
Open-Source ERP Makes Headway in U.S. Market An open-source business-application vendor is ramping up its U.S. partner push as it seeks small to midsized customers.
Compiere plans to recruit 20 to 30 U.S. integrators and VARs this year. The company already has about 15 U.S. companies on its partner roster.
Compiere provides its open-source enterprise-resource-planning/customer-relationship-management system free of charge. It offers presales consulting, implementation services, and support through its network of partners.
Open source ERP The goal of ERP isn't simply to provide a unified application interface for every aspect of a company's business process -- it also tries to include the inherent data-mining capabilities that go along with it. But while JD Edwards, Oracle (Profile, Products, Articles), SAP (Profile, Products, Articles), and others have invested significant resources in building ERP software that's customizable enough for any business, these companies have also forced the price of the software to heights many businesses just can't afford.

Soultion If you are new to Open Source, you might be curious why Compiere would choose to release code for a software product without charging an expensive licensing fee like traditional ERP vendors do.
Compiere does it because Open Source is great for our customers. It gives them reliable code driven by consumer demand and frees them from the hassles and expense of vendor lock-in.
Open source gaining traction in ERP market A growing number of companies are looking into the possibility of deploying mission-critical Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) applications on top of the open source Linux operating system, according to technology professionals and industry analysts.
While ERP on Linux is still far from the norm, industry watchers say it is on the radar screen of technology decision makers eager to avoid vendor lock-in and reduce the overall cost of historically expensive ERP implementations.
Open Source ERP Gains Momentum The latest release, version 1.3, adds credit card processing, a new reporting tool, and integration with contract logistics providers such as UPS and Federal Express. Those new features are being added to OpenMFG's existing functionality, which includes MRP, inventory management, master scheduling, order management, capacity planning, accounts payable and receivable, part definition, and costing and general ledger.
The faster new-release cycle is made possible in large part by OpenMFG's modified open source development model, said CEO Ned Lilly in an interview with Managing Automation.
Open-source ERP vendor Compiere gets $6 million funding The vendor makes the open-source integrated ERP (enterprise resource planning) and CRM (customer relationship management) Compiere software that can be used on-premise or can be hosted. In a different take on the traditional open-source model, the company focuses on developing and supporting the software, leaving product distribution to its 70-plus global partner network. There are currently about 240 paying Compiere customers, along with more than 1 million downloads of the open-source software.
Open Source ERP For SMEs In this article, I would like to review CK-ERP, an Open Source ERP/CRM system, ideally suited for use by SMEs. It has a total of 19 modules including accounting ledger, Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivables, Purchase Order, Sales Order, Quotation, Point of Sale, Human Resource, Payroll and contact management. It operates as modules running atop phpGroupWare. This makes it possible for the software to be easily installed on Internet if employees are in various locations or on the Intranet for more secure transactions.
Compatible Sequoia Open Source ERP Released Sequoia Open Source ERP, a PostgreSQL-compatible open source ERP suite, made its first stable release, v0.8.1. This release offers a full suite of eCommerce, Point Of Sales, Product Catalog, Customer, Order, Inventory and Warehouse, Manufacturing, and Content Management Applications. It has been tested in both Windows and Linux using MySQL 5.0.13RC and PostgreSQL 8.0.4.
The open source ERP alternative Compiere, in Italian, means to accomplish, fulfill, deliver. The seven-year old open source ERP, which provides integrated customer relationship management (CRM), partner relations management (PRM), supply chain management (SCM), enterprise resource planning (ERP), and online analysis processing (OLAP) for free, may sound too good to be true.
The Case for Open-Source ERP To Chen, principal of Open Source Strategies Inc., a Los Angeles-based consulting firm, open source's flexibility lends itself to ERP (enterprise resource planning) solutions. Open source puts ERP source code in the hands of companies, which can freely modify it to meet their specific needs.
With ERP customization is close to inevitable. Chen pointed out that as many as 80 percent of ERP deployments in some market segments are custom-developed systems. And commercial ERP products from the likes of Oracle and SAP are rarely implemented without significant adaptation.

Open Source Enterprise Resource Planning ERP - Compiere The goal of enterprise resource planning (ERP) applications is to provide a unified interface for business aspects such as accounting, inventory management, point-of-sale, inventory, logistics, and customer relationship management. Open source extends the value and protects your investment by giving you control over the destiny of your software and and preventing planned vendor obsolescence. If your ERP vendor is acquired, will you be forced into a migration? Compiere, an open source ERP, provides enterprise quality and stability, at an affordable price. Mandriva along with its partners, Audaxis and Possibility Forge, are bringing affordable, open source ERP to small and medium businesses.
Open Source Accounts and ERP Software Accounting Software was often one of the first pieces of application software purchased by any business or organisation. Often it was even the reason for first pc purchases.
Strange then at times it appears not a popular area for open source. It may be understandable with the industry built around supporting accounts software currently that there are not too many solutions. But after further investigations there are actually some very interesting and exciting open source alternatives.
Open Source ERP Makes Inroads ERP systems based on open source technologies appear to be gaining momentum, judging by the success of Norfolk, Va.-based OpenMFG, which recently released the fourth upgrade of its product and announced plans to double the frequency of new releases. The four-year-old company has 40 customers, most of whom are small manufacturers. OpenMFG's CEO predicts its product will catch on with larger enterprises that are uncomfortable with the frantic pace of acquisitions in the ERP space. Having full access to source code is "an insurance policy" that will appeal to them, he says. OpenMFG's software is built atop the PostgreSQL database management system, the Linux operating environment and the Qt framework for C++ development environment.
ERP Opening To Open Source Most people familiar with ERP know of PeopleSoft, and its co-founder Dave Duffield. Probably far less know the name Michael Frappier of SQLFusion. They both want to make the stratospheric reaches of ERP more attainable for small to medium businesses.
That looks like a possible future of ERP. If the likes of Duffield and Frappier can drive the construction of effective ERP solutions on the software-as-a-service model, and monetize them with implementation and support revenue, they could pose a challenge to the likes of the Microsoft Dynamics line. And maybe even Ellison's Oracle, too.
