“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.”
Norfolk, VA (PRWEB) December 24, 2012
xTuple, makers of the world’s #1 open source ERP software, announced the immediate availability of version 4.0 of the xTuple accounting, CRM and ERP suite. The release marks a milestone for the commercial open source Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) vendor.
The classic xTuple Desktop client in 4.0 features over 400 new enhancements – including a new Social Desktop featuring integrated intra-company Instant Messaging, Cost Plus Pricing, Enhanced Job Costing and significant enhancements to Projects and Corporate/Customer Relationship Management (CRM). Version 4.0 also includes the first ever Mobile Web client, optimized for a multi-tenant Cloud hosting environment.

The xTuple Mobile Web client is also fully interoperable with the xTuple Desktop client, which runs natively on Windows, Mac and Linux. Office-bound users can work with the familiar Desktop platform, while sales people can now manage and enrich their customer and prospect relationships from tablets or smartphones – on-the-go, anytime, anywhere.
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."
“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.”
Functionality in the core, free and open source xTuple Postbooks – which includes all of the Mobile CRM features in version 4.0 – is available for download from xTuple repositories on Github and Sourceforge. xTuple Standard and Manufacturing Editions, as well as the premium xTuple Enterprise, add more advanced functionality over the Postbooks core and are available under xTuple's commercial source code license. The xTuple Mobile Web is available under the same open source license as the Desktop client.
