Openbravo launches ERP software in French and new partner recruitment campaign in France

Award-winning, fully-featured open source ERP software available for French SMEs.

Openbravo's leading web-based open source Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software has been localized and released in French. To complement this release, the company is attending Solutions Linux 2008 to discuss its new localization, meet potential French partners and to present Openbravo Network.

Openbravo will be exhibiting its new French localization, Openbravo Network and Openbravo POS at Solutions Linux 2008 in booth E32-F32, in the Open Solutions Alliance Village.

Additionally, Paolo Juvara, Chief Products Officer for Openbravo, will be discussing open source adoption and the role of the development community in the Solutions Linux conference. His presentation, 'The point of view of the developer: Interoperability and open source community', will be part of 'Cycle OSA' taking place in on Tuesday 29 January at 2pm.

A European software company, with a presence all around the globe, Openbravo develops leading professional open source enterprise resource management (ERP) and Point of Sale (POS) solutions for small and medium businesses.

Available immediately, the localization provides a full version of Openbravo's robust open source ERP software to French SMEs. The software is already available in six European languages including Spanish, Italian, Dutch, Portuguese, Polish, and Romanian. It is relied on small to medium businesses that need to gain visibility, management and to connect back-office activities, from inventory management to accounting, as well as key customer and management functions such as customer relationship management (CRM) and business intelligence (BI).

The company's partner recruitment drive in France is based on seeking any business entities who are interested in working with a robust open source ERP solution and building their professional business practices around Openbravo with a unique value proposition.

Manel Sarasa, CEO of Openbravo said, "As a European software company we understand the importance of having fully-featured and flawless localizations available to new territories as we release them. France has one of the most robust and vibrant SME communities, and a culture of innovation, which supports and encourages adoption of open source technology. We hope to meet some interesting business partners, resellers, end-users and developers at Solutions Linux and I look forward to us ramping up in the French market in 2008".

Openbravo ERP is integrated with Openbravo POS, a front-office solution that integrates point-of-sale ordering, bar-code scanning, ticket printing and customer displays, and allows those features to be fully integrated with the back-end ERP system. Openbravo POS is available in French as a separate file which can be downloaded from SourceForge and easily installed. The French localization is available on SourceForge.

To provide greater support to the French market, Openbravo Network is available.
