xTuple Announces New Version of xTuple Accounting, CRM and ERP Suite

xTuple, makers of open source ERP software, recently announced version 4.0 of  the xTuple accounting, CRM and ERP suite is now available. Version 4.0 comes with 400 new enhancements and also includes the first ever Mobile Web client, optimized for a multitenant cloud hosting environment.

The Mobile Web client is fully interoperable with the xTuple Desktop client, which runs natively on Windows, Mac and Linux. With version 4.0, xTuple has expanded the capacity of its xTuple Cloud Services, which now includes the PostgreSQL open source database, Google (News - Alert) V8 JavaScript implemented as a database procedural language, the Node.js application server, the Backbone.js model system and the Enyo HTML5 framework from HP.

Mike Rosemire, IT manager for xTuple customer Nordic Naturals and a beta tester for the Mobile Web client, reports, "I find the xTuple Mobile app to be extremely intuitive and easy to use. The app encompasses far more than merely the Web-ification of modules in an existing client. The app is the client portion of a sweeping technology transformation that spans the entire client, server and database spaces. The expanded range of supported devices for xTuple Mobile includes nearly all Web-enabled mobile devices and desktop computers. With the increasing use of mobile devices in business settings, this app is a welcome development. Moreover, with an increasingly dispersed workforce, a Web-based client such as xTuple Mobile unchains a user's location from the location where the xTuple database is hosted. As an added bonus, the xTuple Mobile technology platform has the potential to deliver higher performance to users than the previous technology platform did."

xTuple integrates all critical functional areas in one system: sales, accounting and operations, including customer and supplier management, inventory control, manufacturing and distribution. The solutions is designed for professional services companies, not-for-profit groups that need fund accounting and manufacturers or distributors with advanced project accounting requirements.

“With the 4 Series and the Mobile Web client, we are extending our position as the most customer-friendly, enterprise-grade open source ERP available,” said xTuple CEO Ned Lilly. “Our open source business practices and public cloud architecture give our customers the peace of mind that their data belongs to them, and if we don’t meet their expectations, they can pack up and leave any time.”
