Note: Because of the general complexity of Nexedi services regarding ERP5 implementations
do NOT include joint development between integrators, partners, consultants and Nexedi.
This guarantees responsiblity for a project rests only in one hand and prevents
conflicts from communication and related issues which often cause
ERP implementations to fail.
ERP5 is free software and open source. The source code can be found on Gitlab, the
the developer introduction and the ERP5 Developer
Documentation has all the information on how to get started with ERP5.
Compared to other ERP systems, ERP5
is a generic, highly customizable system. The core ERP5 can be extended with
business templates, which provide additional features.
Those are then customized to fit the specific client requirements. This means with ERP5
you will not have a ready-to-use ERP system. ERP5 is more like a box of generic
components from which you can build the system your customer needs.
Learning how to develop ERP5 takes time. You need to work with it for up to two
years to be able to really do all the things. To master the whole open source
stack including SlapOS (deployment), Wendelin (BigData), re6st (Network Optimization)
will need even more time but will enable you to deliver industry-grade, scalable
and secure ERP systems.
To get a feel for and evaulate how ERP5 works from a user perspective including installation of
an instance on a virtual machine, please check out the OSOE Online course (soon on Coursera)
on how to get started with ERP5.
Nexedi, the creator and developer of ERP5 does not enter into any joint development
projects and also does not work with system integrators. This means if you want
to use ERP5 you can learn and become an ERP5 developer yourself (we provide
support billed/hour) or you can request Nexedi, the creator and maintainer of
ERP5, to develop a system based on clients requirements. For this you will
receive a consulting commission. For details, please
get in touch with Nexedi directly.
