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.
xTuple: Setup, Configuration and Operation (Class)
Implementing an ERP system is a major undertaking.
This class pays for itself even if you gain only a single insight over the course of the week. For years, we referred to this class as an "introduction" to xTuple ERP, but we've consistently heard from customers — and Partners alike — that it is MUCH more than that.
Training classes held at xTuple Headquarters in Norfolk, Virginia — include one group activity such as an evening aboard the Tall Sailing Ship American Rover to see Hampton Roads, the largest natural harbor — and largest Navy base — in the world. Or, xTuple golf, if weather and time permits.
Classes are presented as follows:
- Day One, 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM
- Day Two, 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM
- Day Three, 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM
- Day Four, 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM
- Day Five, 8:00 AM - 3:00 PM
- Time Zone: Eastern Time (GMT-05:00-US & Canada)

"I did NOT want to attend the Introduction to xTuple ERP course. I have 20 years of ERP experience in several packages and within several industries. I didn't think that an 'introduction' class was going to teach me anything new. I held my nose and kept an open mind, and after the first few hours, I was glad I had come. The course turned out to be a good investment, even for someone with my experience. The instructor led us at an easy pace through lecture, demonstration, and hands on configuration of the xTuple ERP application. By the last day we 'opened' our practice companies for business and were able to completely understand how the data flows through the business model."
