xTuple, a provider of Mac and open source enterprise resource planning (ERP) software, has launched iTuple, an integrated CRM application for the Apple iPhone and iPod Touch. It was developed by xTuple partner Paladin Logic, a research and software development firm headquartered in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.
According to xTuple, the new application allows users to sync their iPhone or iPod Touch with their company’s ERP database, including the CRM Address Book of contacts and corporate relationships and personal to-do items assigned from within the CRM module. It allows users to call or email CRM contacts by tapping the live hyperlink on the iTuple record. Addresses in iTuple are integrated with the Google Maps application.
xTuple said that the new ERP offering is available in the PostBooks, Standard and Manufacturing Editions and are fully internationalised with multi-currency, support for multiple tax structures, and multilingual translation packs maintained by the global xTuple open source community.
Will Bralick, president of Paladin Logic, said: xTuple’s flexible, database-driven design makes creating new user interfaces relatively simple. Future releases of iTuple will be guided by the demands of the xTuple and iPhone user communities, and could include additional CRM functionality, sales and financial reporting and other business intelligence, inventory and product activity, really anything that’s in the xTuple ERP database.
The Standard and Manufacturing Editions are available under the company’s hybrid license, whereby customers and partners have 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 company said.
