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.
How do I get PostBooks?
Get the xTuple Desktop Client Installer
xTuple PostBooks Edition is an open source business software application. xTuple is a client/server application, meaning that it requires both a database component and a client application that is used to access the database.
Download the xTuple Desktop Client Installer from the PostBooks project site on SourceForge.net.
For the database, you have two options.
Option 1: Signup for a Free Cloud Account
When you run the xTuple Desktop Client Installer, you are given the option to set up a new Free Trial account in the xTuple Cloud. If you chose this option, xTuple will set up two Free Trial databases, Demo and QuickStart, in the xTuple Cloud, which you can access for free for 30 days. You can login to the xTuple Cloud with either the Desktop client or the Mobile Web client. At the end of your trial period you can subscribe to the Cloud Service to keep your QuickStart database.
Most first-time users will want to download the xTuple Desktop Client Installer and create a Free Trial account to help you get started. The installer is available for Windows, Mac and Linux, and SourceForge will auto-detect your platform and steer you to download the correct version.
Option 2: On-site database installation
If you choose not to set up a Free Trial account, you will need to set up the xTuple database on a PostgreSQL server of your own. We provide a page of instructions for on-site installation of xTuple PostBooks Edition, client and server.
