Open Source ERP Provider xTuple Introduces Mobile Web Application for CRM Module

By Mandira Srivastava, TMCnet Contributor

xTuple customers can now use a mobile device to access various features of xTuple CRM Module. In the recently announced version 4.0 of xTuple accounting, CRM and ERP suite, the company included the first-ever mobile Web client, optimized for a multitenant cloud hosting environment.


Besides the mobile client, version 4.0 of xTuple also features more than 400 new enhancements to its desktop client in 4.0– including a new social desktop featuring integrated intra-company instant messaging, cost plus pricing, enhanced job costing and significant enhancements to projects and corporate/CRM.

xTuple Mobile Web client, which took more than three years to develop, is a full JavaScript, HTML5-based application which works on any modern tablet, smartphone or desktop Web browser. In future releases, xTuple is planning to make its accounting, CRM and ERP also available in the mobile Web client.

The xTuple Mobile Web client is also fully interoperable with the xTuple Desktop, allowing Office-bound users to work with the familiar desktop platform, while sales people can now manage and enrich their customer and prospect relationships from tablets or smartphones – on-the-go, anytime, anywhere.

Mike Rosemire, IT manager for xTuple customer Nordic Naturals and a beta tester for the Mobile Web client, said in a statement, "I find the xTuple Mobile app to be extremely intuitive and easy to use. With the increasing use of mobile devices in business settings, this app is a welcome development. Moreover, with an increasingly dispersed workforce, a Web-based client such as xTuple Mobile unchains a user's location from the location where the xTuple database is hosted. As an added bonus, the xTuple Mobile technology platform has the potential to deliver higher performance to users than the previous technology platform did."

“With the 4 Series and the Mobile Web client, we are extending our position as the most customer-friendly, enterprise-grade open source ERP available,” said xTuple CEO Ned Lilly. “Our open source business practices and public cloud architecture give our customers the peace of mind that their data belongs to them, and if we don’t meet their expectations, they can pack up and leave any time.”
