Compiere Open Source ERP Software

Compiere Open Source ERP Software

Compiere Overview

Compiere was perhaps one of the first open source ERP solutions for small and mid-sized businesses in distribution, retail, services, and manufacturing. It launched in 1999 and was a top 10 project on SourceForge for four consecutive years beginning in 2002 and reaching one million downloads and 100 partners by 2006.

Compiere is a model driven architectural development and deployment framework that contains tools for Purchasing , Materials Management, Manufacturing, Order Management, Sales, Service, E-Commerce, Financial Management and Performance Reporting functions. Compiere provides multiple views of business information based on the detail of the actual transactions.


Some of the features of Compiere include:

  • Order Management: This function covers the business process for creating a quote for a prospect or customer, order management, invoicing and cash receipt. The functionality is integrated with Supply Chain Management and Customer Management. In traditional systems, you find this in modules like order entry and accounts receivables.
  • Warehouse Management: Improves warehouse productivity by automating inbound and outbound logistics.
  • Material Management: This supply chain Management function covers inventory receipts, shipments, moves and counts within a client and its organizations and to suppliers and customers.
  • Manufacturing Management: It is capable of multi-level Bills of Material, work-in-process tracking, completion of final assemblies to shipping, work order costing, create work orders and select customer specific options at order entry time, and integration with Compiere’s existing materials management, purchasing, sales order management and financial systems.
  • Sales Management: This function provides automated solutions for customer request for a service, requests to reimburse costs, request for customer or vendor order, shipment, invoice or payment, warranty and helpdesk.
  • Web Store: Compiere Web Store can be run with rest of the ERP data without the effort of synchronization. The store provides different facilities like On Line Product Catalog, On Line Pricing and availability, On Line Sales Transaction, Customer Management etc.
  • Performance Management: Generate reports and manage the performance of your enterprise business solutions.
  • Purchase Management: Automate different value chain from procurement to payment.

Here is an overview of the feature/functions of Compiere's Professional edition:

One notable module that's missing from Compiere is Human Resources Management (HRM) so, clients requiring this function may need to integrate with a third party HRM application or be better looking at a product like Odoo that does include modules for HRM.

CYOP employs a proven project management methodology that includes a detailed requirements analysis to effectively discern feature/function requirements before any development efforts begin which minimizes deployment time and necessary re-work.

The CYOP planning process includes development of a basic Functional Design, a Gap Analyis to determine custom development efforts, a Data Migration Strategy to ensure data from current systems can be effectively migrated to the new system, and a Systems Interface Design to describe any external systems that need to be integrated and how that will be accomplished.

CYOP's Project Implementation Roadmap combines a coordinated technical programming and development effort with sound project management to effectively bridge the gap between the client and the programmers to ensure business objectives, and not just a programming exercise, are achieved.

CYOP leverages free open source software to build for our clients an application that is highly customized for thier business and that they OWN. Because the finished application is owned by the customer who has full access to the souce code, there is no vendor lock-in and the application can never be obsoleted since with a large community of open source programmers able to ensure ongoing development and support.

A key component in the implementation of any ERP system is the training of personnel and ongoing support. Users must be effectively trained in any improved revised business processes in addition to system feature/function. Common ERP training programs tend to focus on general system functions. Then, employees go back to their desks and don't know what to do. CYOP's ERP training focuses on working with the individual company personnel to make sure they know how to do their jobs, so once the new ERP system is live, employees already know what to do.

Additionally, a sound support process and infrastructure ensures personnel have a way to escalate any questions or issues and that any bugs are promptly addressed.
