We needed a solution that would allow us to forecast for materials, with a lead time of up to 16 weeks and help us take control of our manufacturing costs. xTuple has proven to be a valuable tool for all areas of the company.
How do I start using PostBooks?
The xTuple Free Trial is designed to be a self-guided tour of the xTuple application.
We recommend that you begin with the DEMO database.
- Start with the Mobile Web Demo Guide for using the Mobile Web client.
- Then try The Service and Inventory Demo Guides for using the Desktop client.
After you've experienced the DEMO, you should access your QUICKSTART database.
- The Mobile Web QuickStart Guide gets you started entering your own company data via the Mobile Web client.
- The QuickStart Guide will take you through the initial important steps of setting up your own company in the Desktop client.
For additional help, you can post questions in the xTuple forum.
If during your Free Trial you have questions about the application—or you want to learn more about xTuple—please contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Use the Wizard
When you are ready to set up your own business using xTuple business management software, we offer the QuickStart Wizard. This package is built into the QuickStart database that you get with the xTuple Free Trial in the cloud. For users installing on-site, the QuickStart Wizard is also available as an add-on package, along with a downloadable guide (PDF format) that provides a step-by-step process for entering your company information. This is the fastest way to start using the software.
Follow the Demo Guide
xTuple offers Demo Guides to introduce the features of the software. The Demo Guides, available online for free or as downloadable PDFs take users through a basic business process flow. The Demo Guides refer to the sample data contained in the Demo database that comes with the PostBooks installer.
Want to Try it on Your Own?
Experienced in set up of PostgreSQL databases? If you do not need the QuickStart Wizard, you can still use the QuickStart database template in the Databases folder (this folder was installed when you installed xTuple). Create a new PostgreSQL database, restore it using the postbooks_quickstart-[version-number].backup file, and set up your company on your own.
