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.
Don't you have to be a programmer to make Open Source software work?
No. xTuple is designed to meet the needs of small to midsized businesses who are not likely to have a programmer on staff. And we're not going to force our partners into programming if that's not their business. The fact is, xTuple ERP is easy to install because it has to be. And xTuple provides our partners with unlimited technical support through all phases of the customer engagement. However – if you do enjoy digging deeper into the code, there are terrific additional revenue streams to be realized in developing new base functionality sponsored by a customer (our favorite kind), custom screens and scripts, and of course custom reports with the embedded OpenRPT report writer.
