Compiere Unveils Industry's First End-to-End Manufacturing ERP Solution Available On-Premise and on the Cloud

Company extends ERP capabilities to reduce production costs and improve manufacturing planning and production control operations

Redwood Shores, Calif. – May 27, 2009 – Compiere, Inc., the global leader in open source and Cloud-based enterprise resource planning solutions, today unveiled the details of Compiere Manufacturing, the industry's first end-to-end, industrial-strength manufacturing ERP solution developed on an open source platform. Compiere Manufacturing helps companies reduce production costs and improve efficiencies by integrating and automating planning and scheduling, production control, cost management and reporting across discrete manufacturing operations. Advanced cost management, analysis and reporting tools provide visibility and insight into production costs and opportunities for improvement. Built on a modern, highly adaptable application development platform, Compiere Manufacturing can be customized without programming - a first in the ERP industry.

Compiere Manufacturing includes wide-ranging purchasing, materials management, order management and global financial management functionality. Examples of new manufacturing tools include work order execution and a new Planners Workbench, Multi-Step Routing and Bulk Transaction Entry/Job Value Analysis. The Planners Workbench enables planners to review and modify plans created by material requirements planning (MRP) to meet forecasted and customer demand efficiently in a single view. Multi-Step Routing ensures tight production control with an unlimited number of mandatory or optional operations. And Batch Transaction Entry increases productivity by enabling operators to update multiple work orders on the same screen.

Don Klaiss, Compiere president and CEO said, "Compiere Manufacturing is another example of our commitment to invest in expanding our technologies across new and growing industries. This product delivers a winning combination of essential manufacturing functionality, along with a modern and adaptable web-based platform that offers our customers the choice of deploying on-premise, SaaS or on the Cloud, resulting in a very compelling total cost of ownership model."

"We are delighted that Compiere has made the investment to expand its manufacturing capabilities," said Remus Cazacu, general manager of BIT Software, a European-based Compiere Silver Partner. "Manufacturing is a huge market opportunity for both Compiere and BIT Software; with Compiere's new manufacturing product, we can offer a broad set of functionality, consulting and system integration services to current and future customers."

Compiere offers a free Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) analysis, which provides cost comparisons between various ERP solutions available in the marketplace. Compiere Manufacturing will be available beginning June 15.
