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.

Introduction to the Program
The market opportunity is huge. Our company was originally founded to bring the benefits of sophisticated business management software to small- to mid-size companies, predominately manufacturers. As the xTuple Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Suite has grown over the years, we have accomplished that mission.
And we have just scratched the surface: there are 300,000 manufacturing companies in the U.S. alone with sales of $1-50 million. The global market for manufacturing is many times higher.
And what about Distribution? Retail? Professional services? Government? Nonprofits? Medical? All of these types of organizations need ERP too. With the open source PostBooks Edition of xTuple, we have a FREE offering for those markets that is hard to beat. xTuple Commercial Editions continue to evolve as well. In addition to the Manufacturing Edition of xTuple ERP (formerly OpenMFG), the xTuple Standard Edition adds more sophisticated features for distributors and retailers.
Look at what exists in the xTuple product line-up today – check out our online product videos, downloadable demo client which can connect to a hosted xTuple database, or the full copy of the PostBooks Edition, including source code.
Many small- to mid-size businesses could use a product like xTuple.
We need you to help us reach them.
The Standard, Manufacturing and Enterprise Editions of xTuple are paid software. xTuple partners earn generous commissions on sales of the Commercial Editions, as well as most other xTuple offerings, including XTN network services and PostgreSQL database offerings.
Typically, Partners earn the bulk of their business on implementation services – working with customers of both the FREE and Commercial Editions to get the software up and running at a local customer site, capturing (and perhaps coding) any required enhancements to the base product. 100% of that implementation (and software development) revenue is yours to keep.
xTuple HQ can help – as much or as little as you require. Pre-sales, sales and marketing, demos, technical assistance, data migration, development, training, you name it. We are here to help our partners, not to compete with them. We are building is a strong channel business, which leverages the advantages of open source to the benefit of all concerned – customer, partner, vendor.
xTuple holds regular week-long training events on xTuple business management software functionality and reporting (intended for operational users), as well as developer-oriented technical training. Classes are open to the public at a minimal cost. And most of our Partner Programs include training at no additional charge as a valuable part of the package.
