Product Information  
System ERPNext
Vendor ERPNext
Description ERPNext is VERY DIFFERENT from other software solutions for the following reasons:
  • ERPNext is a complete Enterprise Software Suite that supports complete digitization of your company.  This is not just a point solution that solves only one issue and must be integrated to other software packages.
  • ERPNext is a complete multi-company multi-currency solution that is designed to support companies working across international boarders.
  • ERPNext is community developed software.  As a result, there are no software licensing fees.
  • ERPNext is developed on an open source software stack including but not limited to Linux, Apache, Hyper-V and more.  As a result, there are no software stack licensing fees.
  • ERPNext is based upon best-in-class current programming standards including Python programming language and the open source Frappe Framework.  This means it is easy to find skilled talent to support your implementation and you can use the thousands of community development groups from around the world that are improving features and functions on a daily basis.
  • ERPNext is Open Source which means you OWN the source code to your solution.  You do not have to worry about proprietary programming language, proprietary code compiling, bankruptcy of the software developer or your implementation team.  Your business risk is minimized.
  • ERPNext exists on is own as a proven product.  There are no sales teams getting paid commission to sell you this software.  You will not be spammed by marketing teams, robo calls, and will not be strong armed by commission driven sales professionals.
