Discover the specificities of Open Source ERP, and the best reasons to choose a free and open software.
A free and open ERP
An Open Source business solution’s code is accessible to all. A company with adequate internal resources is able to take control over the software to develop a new module, create a process or a business application, or simply interface with another software. A proprietary ERP software, with limited access and closed technologies, does not allow this possibility.
It will also be easier to find an integrator or an expert with knowledge of the technologies on which Open Source ERP are based.

Even if recommended, Open Source ERP version changes are not mandatory. You are the only one to decide if you wish to change versions, with lower costs compared to a proprietary solution.
Save the license cost
With an Open Source ERP, and unlike proprietary softwares, there is no license cost, and the number of users is unlimited. Savings are more or less significant: they are estimated as 25% to 50% of the total ownership cost of an ERP.
The ERP software is free, yet optional services are subject to charge: integration, maintenance, training, additional developments.
What is an Open Source software?
A software is said to be Open Source when its source code can be freely accessed, modified, studied and transferred.
The name was created by the Open Source Initiative, which defines the conditions an Open Source license must meet.
