     “What makes xTuple different is the people AND the product. I like xTuple employees and have found everyone I’ve worked with to be helpful, responsive, and knowledgeable, not just about xTuple, but about ERP in general. I like that using xTuple allowed us to implement a full-featured ERP system on-time and under budget, at approximately 40% of the cost of other ‘big name’ products. The base system did a lot of what we needed to do, and it’s been relatively easy to build the other things we needed. It is quite easy to administer, both within the GUI and on the database administrative level,”

    Challenge

    EMSEAL used a custom-developed manufacturing system built on a Microsoft Access platform. Since the software was unsupported, and did not include important purchasing and inventory control modules, EMSEAL management collectively decided to obtain a new fully-functional Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system, running on a modern, fully-supported platform, with superior performance in a Windows operating system environment.

    EMSEAL’s primary functional challenge was a need for better inventory control and integrated purchasing.

    EMSEAL has two corporate entities with a large amount of intra-company purchasing, necessitating customized data transfer capabilities. EMSEAL’s business complexity was further challenged by a multi-dimensional sales commission structure, outside the native capabilities of most ERP systems.
