PostBooks - Open Source Accounting/ERP/CRM

Posted on 2007-08-01

Introducing the world's most advanced open source ERP system.

PostBooks is a full-featured, fully-integrated accounting, ERP, and CRM system, based on the award winning OpenMFG ERP Suite.

Built with the open source PostgreSQL database, and the open source Qt framework for C++, it provides the ultimate in power and flexibility for a range of businesses and industries. It includes the following modules:

  • Accounting (general ledger, accounts receivable and payable, bank reconciliation, financial reporting)
  • Sales (quotes, order entry, sales reporting, shipping)
  • CRM (universal address book, incident management, opportunity management, to-do lists, project management)
  • Purchasing (purchase orders, receiving, vendor reporting)
  • Product Definition (items, infinite-level bills of material)
  • Inventory (multiple locations, other advanced warehouse features)
  • Light Manufacturing (work orders, strong support for make-to-order)
  • OpenRPT open source report writer

Like all xTuple products, it runs equally well on Windows, Linux, and Mac - and is fully internationalized (multi-currency, support for multiple tax structures, and multilingual translation packs maintained by our global community).

PostBooks is licensed under the CPAL, the OSI-certified Common Public Attribution License.
