xTuple Ends 2012 on a High Note
xTuple Ends 2012 on a High Note
December 27 2012
In the final days of 2012,
, a commercial open source enterprise resource planning (ERP) company that works with a global community of tens of thousands of professional users,
reported its second consecutive record quarter of sales for 2012
. Due to a surge of new customers in manufacturing and distribution, revenue was reportedly up 74 percent over the third quarter last year—and sales in the first three quarters of 2012 were up 59 percent overall from the same time period in 2011.
At about the same time, xTuple announced the immediate
availability of version 4.0 of the xTuple accounting, customer relationship management (CRM), and ERP suite
. xTuple, formerly
, gives customers the ability to tailor solutions with multiplatform support for
Microsoft Windows, Apple Mac, Linux
, and mobile, as well as flexible licensing and pricing options. But the
marks a milestone for the commercial open source ERP vendor. For one, the classic
client in 4.0 features more than 400 new enhancements—including a new Social Desktop featuring integrated intra-company Instant Messaging (IM), Cost Plus Pricing, Enhanced Job Costing, and significant enhancements to Projects and CRM.

Over the course of the 4.x product releases, xTuple will make the entirety of its accounting, CRM, and ERP scope available in the Mobile Web client. The xTuple Mobile Web client is also fully interoperable with the aforementioned xTuple Desktop client, which runs natively on Windows, Mac, and Linux. Office-bound users can work with the familiar Desktop platform, while "road warriors” sales people can now manage and enrich their customer and prospect relationships from tablets or smartphones—on-the-go, anytime, anywhere.
A Mammoth R&D Feat
One would be hard-pressed to think of any other enterprise software vendor that has created a next-gen mobile client that is fully interoperable with its legacy product, and a web app that is actually faster than compiled C++ programs. In addition, xTuple has brought together four different pieces of brand new (bleeding-edge) open source component technology to build the solution, and rolled out the new solution without spooking or alienating existing customers (and at zero additional charge for those customers that are current on maintenance).
Last but not least, the company has done all that with an “embarrassingly” small development team, the actual number of which cannot be divulged. Any one of those achievements by itself would be game-changing, and kudos to xTuple shifting some paradigms in this market!
