Join Us for the Greater Toronto Area Business Showcase

O, Canada!Canada has always been a great market for xTuple, where we are proud to support our many users and dedicated partners. Now, more than ever, there is increased demand for a full-featured, integrated ERP solution that's customizable, flexible and affordable. xTuple has been modified to meet the requirements of Canadian tax regulations, and for our friends in Quebec, xTuple is nearly 100% translated into Canadian French.

Demand has reached a tipping point throughout Canada and the U.S., as other software vendors, particularly Sage, have announced the retirement of several once popular solutions.

Calling All Accountants and CPA's...We Want to Talk to You!

People often discover xTuple by searching phrases like "Quickbooks Alternative." It's interesting how few choices there are for companies who've outgrown entry level accounting packages like Quickbooks or Peachtree but don't have (or want to spend) $100,000+ on mid-market solutions like Microsoft Dynamics, Sage or Epicor. Read more »

Washington D.C. training - and early bird special!

Once a year, we schedule our two most popular training classes, Implementing and Managing xTuple and Power User Training, in back-to-back weeks in an effort to make our training more accessible for the many people traveling great distances to join us. Once a year, users and partners alike come from all parts of the world to pack in as much xTuple information as possible, all in one trip!

Well, this year we've made it even easier and more exciting by holding our August training event in Washington D.C.! For many, this means a more direct trip, especially if you're flying. There are two major airports to choose from, and we've negotiated a discounted room rate at the same hotel where the training will be held, the Hilton Garden Inn Arlington/Courthouse Plaza. Located one block from the D.C. metro and easily accessed from either of the two airports, it's a convenient and centrally located hotel option.

xTuple around the world!

Here at xTuple, on a wall behind our support team are maps with lots of colored pins. We have a detailed map of the United States and a World map. The world map isn't new but many of the pins in it are. The pins signify partners and customers. Kind of 'old school' but fun, in a non-techy sort of way!

Here's the Google maps version:

Looking at ERP? Think TCO!

Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) is a significant factor in choosing an Enterprise Resource Planning solution.  But it's another one of those TLA's (Three Letter Acronyms) that not everyone seems to completely understand.

So what do I mean by TCO? It's the sum of all the costs associated with implementing a major software application.  You should factor in not only the cost of the software (if you're purchasing a commercial license), but also any additional costs which may follow as a result of your decision (whether you know it or not).  Carefully reviewing the details of an ERP purchase may uncover  “hidden costs” in acquiring and operating software that might otherwise not be apparent.

Here are some things to consider... Read more »
