Crozdesk.com is an independent business discovery platform which facilitates users to compare 1000s of softwares across 200+ categories. It lists ERPNext as a Leader under the Business Management category.
ERPNext founder Rushabh Mehta speaks at the Digital Ocean Tide in Mumbai highlighting how Startups and Enterprises are leveraging large scale Open Source and Cloud to build next-generation business platforms.
ERPNext is one of those classic open source projects; in fact, it was featured on Opensource.com way back in 2014. It was designed to scratch a particular itch, in this case replacing a creaky and expensive proprietary ERP implementation.
If you need to track all of the pieces of a business and don’t want to use 15 different tools then you should probably be looking at an ERP system. Unfortunately, a lot of them are big, clunky, and difficult to manage, so Rushabh Mehta decided to build one that isn’t. ERPNext is an open-source, web-based, easy to use ERP platform built with Python.
ERPNext’s simplicity means that it’s easy to set up, using simple forms to enter information about your business and walking you through the whole process in typical setup wizard style. It’s a feeling that quickly becomes familiar as the ERP is clean and user friendly.
ERPNext was built for small and medium-sized businesses. It includes modules for accounting, managing inventory, sales, purchase, and project management. The applications that make up ERPNext are form-driven—you fill information in a set of fields and let the application do the rest. The whole suite is easy to use.
The past year saw ERPNext move to a new Web framework, called Frappe, which supports plug-ins and extensions through a new API. In addition to the framework upgrade, the platform received a lot of usability improvements and bug fixes. The list of features is impressive and continues to grow.
