xTuple (http://www.xtuple.com), which specializes in open source
enterprise resource planning (ERP) software, has launched the xChange
(http://www.xtuple.com/xchange), an online marketplace of add-on and
extensions to xTuple ERP.
The xChange provides users with a way to share and discover solutions
ranging from third-party web site connectors to handy “snap-in” tools
that enhance the xTuple applications. Within the xChange, two new
offerings have been launched by xTuple itself: a point-of-sale (POS)
package and the xTuple Batch Manager.
The POS package adds retail cash register management to any of the
editions of xTuple ERP. The Batch Manager processes
resource-intensive jobs separately from the ERP application, in
addition to handling all outgoing email messages and transaction
documents. Previously only available as part of the
commercially-licensed Standard or Manufacturing Editions of xTuple
ERP, the Batch Manager package can now plug into the completely free
and open source PostBooks Edition.
In addition to these offerings, the xChange also features a number of
free solutions. All xTuple ERP products run on Mac, Windows, and
Linux computers, and are fully internationalized with multi-currency,
support for multiple tax structures, and multilingual translation
packs maintained by the global open source community.
