xTuple Overview

xTuple – World’s #1 Open Source ERP

xTuple is a little different. The fundamental question — “Does your software help your business grow?” — is an afterthought to much of the software industry today.

Our mission is to help companies of all sizes successfully implement powerful and easy-to-use open source Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software to grow their business profitably. From the free and open source software (FOSS) PostBooks version for startups to enterprise-class commercial editions for Global 1000, xTuple can manage your business.

xTuple, recognized as the world’s #1 open source ERP, provides enterprise-class technology products and services at an affordable cost — one of the lowest Total Cost of Ownership of any ERP system on the market.

Any business experiencing pressures associated with growth can benefit from xTuple with:

  • Accessibility – mobility for connecting data from any device, anywhere, anytime, to better support customers
  • Compatibility – across and between operating systems – Windows, Mac, Linux or mobile
  • Expandability – improving sales by integrating back office functions with your website and service customers online
  • Functionality – eliminate limitations of critical business management tools, within and outside of xTuple
  • Integration – built-in sales and customer service tools (CRM) which ensure sales success
  • Capacity – eradicate limitations of the typical supply chain management system, for example, in data history and database size
  • Technology – modernize your business systems, cost-effectively, with a vendor and community engaged in thriving research and development processes

xTuple business management software gives growing companies control over operations and profitability, integrating all critical functional areas in one system:

  • Accounting

  • Inventory
  • Manufacturing
  • Reporting

Enterprise Edition

Our best and most powerful software package, xTuple Enterprise is a culmination of all of the other xTuple products into one, feature rich machine. Click here to learn more…

All four editions are built on the same code base; in fact, the client software is exactly the same (so upgrading from one to another is a snap!) All four run equally well on Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X - and are fully internationalized (multi-currency, support for multiple tax structures, and multilingual translation packs maintained by our global community). All three contain a full copy of OpenRPT, the open source report writer also created and maintained by xTuple.

And whether it’s the free PostBooks Edition or the commercially licensed Distribution, Manufacturing, or Enterprise Editions, you get the full application source code (client and server). You can participate in the ongoing improvement and development of the software as much as you like. Best of all, xTuple will manage that multi-product community development process so that all companies – regardless of how technical they might be – can benefit from the open source way of doing things.
