ISO Implements Compiere ERP
ISO is the worlds largest standards organization, setting international standards for any imaginable industry – from high tech to oil drilling, from quality assurance to software development. Compiere, a leading open source ERP vendor, announced that ISO has selected its solution to run their daily operations.
ISO is not a manufacturer or a distributor, but rather a service company. It manages over 18,000 different standards and gets over 5,000 customer orders a month. Compiere ERP will handle mainly products and sales cycles. Great news from Compiere!
Openbravo new partner program
Openbravo announced a new partner program. If you are interested, you can become any of 4 types of partner: Registered, Certified, Gold, and Platinum. That replaced the old partner types of system integrator, ISV and VAR.
I’ve always claimed that one of the key factors to open source ERP solutions success is the partners ecosystem. Openbravo already has over 100 partners in over 40 countries, and the new program is aimed at growing the community further.
