All we had to do was purchase the software and several licenses and see how we liked it. We could do the implementation ourselves, at our pace. Overall, xTuple gave us alternatives that no other vendor could.
How do I get PostBooks®?
xTuple ERP is a client/server application, meaning that it requires both a database server component and a client application that is used to access the database.
xTuple Desktop Client
First, download the xTuple Desktop Client Installer from the PostBooks® project site on SourceForge.net. [Note: Click here first if you need a Free Trial of xTuple, a preview of all CRM, ERP and Accounting features.]
When you run the client installer you will see that you have two options for the server component.
Option 1: Free Trial Account
When you run the xTuple Desktop Client Installer, you have the option to set up a new Free Trial account in the xTuple Cloud. If you chose this option, you will receive a username and password to log in to a demo database in the xTuple Cloud, which you can access for free for 30 days.
