Open Source ERP leader forges tighter links with Drupal Web CMS

xTuple, the leader in Mac and open source enterprise resource planning (ERP) software for small to medium-sized businesses (SMBs), today announced its sponsorship of DrupalCon San Francisco, which will take place April 19-21, 2010, at the Moscone Center.

DrupalCon is the premier conference for the award-winning open source content management platform Drupal. More than 2,500 attendees — including enterprise users, Drupal experts and casual hobbyists — are expected to attend, making this the largest DrupalCon to date.

xTuple CEO and co-founder Ned Lilly stated, “The success of Drupal highlights the expanding role open source technology is playing in companies of all sizes. At xTuple, we power our web site with Drupal and our xChange online marketplace uses the Ubercart add-in module for e-commerce. We look forward to announcing more integration with Drupal in the coming weeks.”

The PostBooks® Edition of xTuple ERP is available free of charge under the open source Common Public Attribution License (CPAL), or xTuple's hybrid commercial license, whereby customers and partners have full access to the application source code, and any enhancements made to the product flow back to xTuple for review, quality testing, and possible incorporation into the baseline product. The Standard and Manufacturing Editions of xTuple are commercially-licensed products with expanded features based on the core PostBooks Edition. All three versions of xTuple run equally well on Mac, Windows and Linux computers and are fully internationalized with multi-currency, support for multiple tax structures, and multilingual translation packs maintained by the global xTuple open source community.
