Compiere expands into manufacturing applications market

Compiere, a provider of open source business solutions, has announced the addition of manufacturing-specific functionality for its open source ERP and CRM business solutions.

The company will deliver manufacturing capabilities in phases, the first of which, available in its 3.1 product, is targeted at manufacturers with assembly operations. Capabilities include support for multi-level bills of material, work-in-process tracking, completion of final assemblies to shipping, work order costing, the ability to create work orders and select customer specific options at order entry time, and seamless integration with Compiere’s existing materials management, purchasing, sales order management and financial systems.

According to the company, Compiere 3.1 is currently available in three editions, professional, standard and community. Additional manufacturing capabilities will be announced in future offerings.

Don Klaiss, president and CEO of Compiere, said: Manufacturers today face new business pressures that are causing them to rethink their ERP strategies. Most midsize companies that currently have an ERP system are using either custom, in-house developed software, or expensive, inflexible, vendor-dependent software based on technology that is at least a decade old. Chief information officers and business executives are looking for new alternatives that lower the ERP cost of ownership and improve their ability to respond to business change.
