The open source ERP iDempiere has a simple installation script, commits very few system resources and has a simple and intuitive user interface. It also makes it possible to approach the management of organisations by processes (Work-Flow) as an alternative to the classic approach by functions.

iDempiere is a software suitable for service, manufacturing and distribution companies. Thanks to its functional coverage, it is able to support all business processes, from the sales process to production and customer after-sales service. iDempiere can be customised for every need thanks to its Open Source core and add-on modules.

The interfaces of iDempiere are extremely customisable. Users only see what they need according to their role in the company. Through the customisation layer, changes are preserved during system updates and version changes.

iDempiere also allows profiled access to its data by end users. Users can easily create reports and analyses and configure reports and statistics according to their needs, then export this data to spreadsheets for processing or statistics if required.
Using the financial reporting function, data can be analysed according to a multi-dimensional logic: costs and revenues can be tracked by order or by cost nature, but also by sales area and campaign.

Integration with the most well-known OpenSource business intelligence systems also allows the extension of the potential of data analysis by obtaining real ‘dashboards’ that allow the monitoring of company activities and performance.

Users can communicate with each other, assign and check tasks via the structure of requests and alerts. Workflow-driven processes allow document approval processes to be set up, requesting approval when it is really needed and avoiding unnecessary feedback from managers. Processes are logged in the system, thus enabling the retrospective verification of actions taken and timeframes as well as the evaluation of inefficiencies. Messages do not merely represent notifications, they are integrated into the flow allowing access to the information that made them necessary. External actors such as customers, suppliers or agents can also be involved in the processes via the web portal.

iDempiere is installed world-wide by a large and geographically distributed community. It therefore makes translations and accounting requirements available for most countries. iDempiere is therefore able to meet the system centralisation needs of geographically distributed companies. A foreign location can be included and managed in the existing installation while accessing local resources (who speak the users’ language) for training and on-site support.
