World's First ERP ASP in Open Source

Nexedi, the creator of ERP5, and ERP5 International partners announced that ERP5 Express, the world's first hosted solution for an open source ERP to the public, has been released.

Marcq-en-Baroeul, Dakar, Warsawa, Paris, Köln - September 15th 2007. Nexedi, the creator of ERP5, and ERP5 International partners have released the world's first hosted solution for an open source ERP to the public: "ERP5 Express".

"With ERP5 Express, small organisations can leverage the power of ERP5 in less than 5 minutes for 15 € per month. It is an all-in-one, no stress, no thrill solution which includes hosting, configuration, support and a knowledge database. It has been designed with simplicity in mind for organisations with standard requirements and configurations." says Yoshinori Okuji, CTO of Nexedi.

"Because ERP5 Express is fully based on the same source code as ERP5, ERP5 Express customers may later evolve towards the ERP5 Enterprise solution and meet growing business needs or complex requirements." adds Thierry Brettnacher, VP Consulting at Nexedi. "ERP5 is the only ERP which can follow your company from its early stage until it becomes a blue chip multinational without requiring any complex data migration. It is a future proof investment due to its use of open data formats and Open Source technology."

Jean-Paul Smets, CEO of Nexedi, adds "ERP5 has been used by a central bank as well as in the aerospace industry, apparel industry, government agencies and hospitals to implement complex projects. Its abstract model and innovative technologies made the difference in competitive bids against famous proprietary solutions and are now copied. With scientific publications in IEEE and O'Reilly, ERP5 is definitely the most advanced open source ERP / CRM. With ERP5 Express, ERP5 is now also the easiest ERP to start with."

Yoshinori Okuji, CTO of Nexedi, says "We started to offer hosted solutions to selected customers in 2005 and received positive feedback. With ERP5 Express, we introduce a new user interface component based on AJAX technology which greatly simplifies the access to ERP5 features through a single page / one click approach and reduces the learning curve drastically."

Kristian Rother, VP Marketing of Nexedi concludes "ERP5 Express is ready for immediate use. As part of our debut campaign, Nexedi offers free training to the first 10 early adopters and extended support during 6 months to the next 10 adopters of ERP5 Express."
