Open Source Solution Previews Vers. 1.0

The past few months have been a period of significant changes in opentaps. By incorporating several new open source applications into its core framework, the system is now positioned to transform itself from an ERP application to an enterprise-wide application platform. The new opentaps 1.0, to be released shortly, will offer a full range of capabilities, including:

- New sales order entry systems in the CRM module, with enhanced support for bulk mailings and customer address validation.
- New tools for integrating opentaps with, eBay, and Froogle.
- Voice Over IP integration into opentaps CRM.
- New opentaps Ajax UI framework tools have been developed and will now allow for re-designing much of the legacy static screens and forms.
- New warehouse management applications for managing inventory, shipping (including UPS/DHL/FedEx integration), and manufacturing.
- New purchasing application for managing suppliers, purchase orders, and automating the procurement process.
- Support for lot-level inventory management for food and beverage, pharmaceutical, and chemical industries.
- Support for payroll, commissions, third party billing, and contract-based billing.
- New library of tools for building online stores for opentaps with other languages and frameworks, developed in conjunction with the open source Joomla! content management project.
- Last but not least, a new opentaps documentation site which will be professionally developed and freely available to all opentaps users.

opentaps is an open source ERP and CRM application with an out-of-the-box feature set for product-based eTailers, retailers, manufacturers, and distributors. Its modules are represented in the diagram below.
