I’ve decided I cannot run the company for another year using our dumb software. We use MYOB for financials and a custom written stock control system that doesn’t integrate to anything. Because we run multiple warehouses and supply consignment stock to distributors, MYOB can’t handle it.
We can go for a proprietary solution. But that would require extensive customisation and the entry price on these advanced ERP/Financials packages is shocking. Paying $500 to $2,000 for a Bank Reconciliation module is crazy. I’d still need modules for at least General Ledger, Accounts Receivable, Accounts Payable, Inventory.
We’re a small growing company so I’m looking for some open source solutions. We’ll probably put the customisation out to tender on the internet. That should be interesting.
In the meantime I’m evaluating Compiere ERP+CRM. If anybody has any suggestions I’d appreciate it.
