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.
Best Open Source ERP for Mac OS X
xTuple ERP is the best open source ERP for Mac OS X. Our software, client and server, offers the best solution for accounting, CRM, and ERP on the Mac platform. We even offer an all-in-one installer for Mac to make it easy to get up and running quickly.
Actually, xTuple ERP is engineered from the ground up to be a top ERP application for all of the main desktop operating systems. How do we do this? Simple: we leverage the power of Qt [pronounced cute], a cross-platform application framework for developing C++ applications. Using Qt, xTuple can develop applications and user interfaces once, and deploy them across many desktop operating systems without rewriting the source code.
On the back end, we employ the powerful PostgreSQL database, an open source database application that runs on all major platforms, including Mac.
There are many advantages to using these cross-platform tools. For one thing, it means when we release an update to the software it's available on Mac, Linux, and Windows at the same time, with no platform left behind.
It also means our users can seamlessly mix and match platforms in an xTuple ERP environment. Some of your users are addicted to Mac, and others would die before giving up Windows? No problem. We have GUI client software for both, and Linux too. And the different client apps can all talk to the same database, which can be hosted on a PC, Mac or Linux server.
So we really are different. We offer seamless, cross-platform support for all major operating systems so you can use the combination of hardware and software that works best for you in your environment. Just another way that xTuple is changing the game.
