Open source ERP product maker xTuple has released version 4.1 of its flagship product, which now integrates an open source business intelligence suite with a mobile Web client.
The new version offers deep-dive sales analytics capability from the Pentaho BI community edition, and simple graphical dashboards for several modules. xTuple ERP 4.1 also adds the Sales module to the mobile Web client, joining CRM and Project modules.
Other product additions include enhancements to manufacturing time clock management; simplified order entry for distribution users; and hundreds of minor bug fixes.
"xTuple users have the best of both worlds. Office-based users can continue to use the award-winning desktop client, while more mobile users will now be able to use increasingly more of the application on their tablets and phones,” said xTuple chief executive Ned Lilly. “With the addition of the Sales module to the already-released CRM, mobile users can now develop sales prospects, issue a quote, and convert the quote to an actual sales order in the ERP back home – all while having access to the full complement of customer information, such as credit status and historical sales. And the integrated BI tools provide instant access to key performance indicators (KPIs) of company performance for the executive on-the-go.”
Customers can choose a perpetual or subscription style license, and run the software on their choice of technology on the desktop (Windows, Mac, Linux) or mobile (Android, Apple iOS, Windows, Blackberry).
