Nexedi releases first open source ERP for smartphones: ERP5 Mobile
January 30, 2007
Nexedi has released the first open source ERP for smartphones, ERP5 Mobile. This new component of the ERP5 family can be accessed from any web-enabled mobile device and is optimized for easy and efficient access to ERP5 on small displays. The addition of ERP5 Mobile makes ERP5 a truly pervasive system that can be used anywhere to query, update and enter employee or customer data from the ERP system or to view production schedules and accounting transactions. ERP5 Mobile has been certified for Nokia E61 smartphone as reference development environment.
The web-enabled and standard compliant Nokia E61 smartphone was selected because of its effective design and because of Nokia's implication in favor of open source/free software such as Python. ERP5 Mobile can be downloaded from the public repository at ERP5 located at http://svn.erp5.org. The Nexedi team will showcase ERP5 Mobile and ERP5 during the Linux Solutions 2007 conference in Paris, France from January 30th to February 1st 2006. Nexedi has developed and deployed ERP5 for a wide range of industries such as aerospace, apparel, banking, healthcare and government. The open licensing of ERP5 eliminates licensing costs and provides full freedom to update and modify the system as business requirements change without depending on a single vendor.
