Taking on OpenERP | Graphicline Zone

OpenERP logoDecision to use OpenERP

Much of today was given over to instaling and configuring OpenERP, an OpenSource business administration solution.

A modern full featured ERP system has been a critical requirement for our admin ever since becoming a full time business.

OpenERP compared to other options

Open ERP will provide most if not all the functionality required going forward, and at some point will be integrateable with our Drupal Customer Zone

OpenSource Software

I admit it, I have become a fan of OpenSource software. After great experiences with WordPress and Drupal, finding a OpenSource logo imagedecent OpenSource ERP solution in OpenERP was a definite plus.

OpenSurce applications have really come a long way in the past several years. The good ones are feature rich, STABLE, and more often than not free.

They may not be as plug&play as some Windows or Official Mac apps, but anyone setting up an ERP on Windows Server / SQL server will know these are also not plug&play in the strict sense of the word.

As far as Open ERP installation on Windows, as easy or as difficult as Evolution, whichever way one wants to look at it. A quick installation that didn’t require a restart, then a few basic things like remembering what the admin password had been set at, followed by creating a new database, and logging on to http://localhost.

Looks good in a “what the doctor ordered” kind of way.

OpenERP Revue:

I will review the app in 4 to 6 months time, after having used it. It’s not a priority project right now.

Support the OpenSource applications we use:

The least any of us who use the essentially free OpenSource apps can do, is provide a link back from our sites to the providers web site, and publicise it through our usual social networks.

WordPress is OpenSource too
