La Poste Selects Compiere Open Source ERP

Redwood Shores, Calif. – Feb. 20, 2009 – Compiere, Inc., the global leader in open source business solutions, has announced that French postal operator La Poste selected the company's open source ERP solution to replace internal systems that support their postal outlets. La Poste is a French-based global postal processing organization with €20 (US $27B) billion in revenue, 300,000 employees, and 45 million customers. The postal operator will deploy Compiere Professional, a commercial open source ERP solution, within a Business-to-Business division, to replace existing sales, purchasing, inventory, and payment processing systems.
