Заключение

Open ERP has become established as the main free market-changing alternative for enterprise management systems in amongst software from giants such as SAP, Oracle and Microsoft, and from the small software developers in their own niches.

До сих пор для систем управления информацией компании существовало только две альтернативы: установка коммерческой системы ERP, полной, но обычно чрезмерно утяжеленной, не гибкой и дорогой; либо внутренняя разработка решения, адаптированного к текущим потребностям, но часто дорогого в разработке, не интегрированного и неполного.

With its free business model, Open ERP combines the advantages of a complete ERP system with the flexibility of an in-house solution. The open source code, the project's general flexibility, and its hundreds of modules let you construct a solution from a selection of the modules already available and you can then freely update it as your needs evolve.

The results will be at the top end of what you might expect from any ERP system, let alone an Open Source system. The considerable gains in productivity, efficiency and visibility become apparent only a few months after implementation. And you can gain from increased operational quality even if you reduce your human resourcing intensity. Because there are fewer repetitive tasks for your staff to do, they can concentrate on higher added-value work. We frequently receive the gratitude of senior management who get better results from their business because they've adopted Open ERP.

Вы не одиноки

Many resources are at hand to accompany you on your Open ERP adventure.

Минуйте технические трудности путем использования SaaS

For a quick low-cost start, you can make use of a month's comprehensive free trial of Tiny's Open ERP SaaS package found at http://ondemand.openobject.com/. Using this you sidestep any technical difficulties and get a comprehensive set of system administration services, server hosting, configuration to your environment, maintenance, support and initial training.

Пакет SaaS приспособлен для нужд малого предприятия, которое не обладает очень специфическими потребностями, и для которого начальные затраты и скорость внедрения являются критическими факторами.

Для достижения целей минимальных затрат, пакет SaaS стремится к высоко автоматизированному стандартизованному переносу данных, минимальной нагрузке на поддержку вследствие качественного обучения пользователей, и строгому ограничению количества предлагаемых модулей. Таким образом, вы не можете использовать собственные модули, и ограничены набором стандартных модулей, которые включают различные уровни предлагаемого пакета.

Изучите доступные ресурсы

Larger companies often prefer a more classic implementation path. Even though Open ERP's simplicity makes this task easier than with other systems, you can't hide the fact that a project implementation is complex and introduces big changes to a company.

Так что вы можете обратиться к различным действующим лицам этой экосистемы свободного программного обеспечения за помощью:

  • сообщество пользователей и разработчиков,

  • Tiny's Open ERP partner companies,

  • главный разработчик проекта -- сама компания Tiny.

Сообщество пользователей и разработчиков

The community, supported by Tiny, hosts a set of communication tools which can help you in your Open ERP investigation.

The forum enables you to discuss issues with other Open ERP users. It's very active and you have a good chance of receiving some form of response to your questions within twenty-four hours or so.

Wiki OpenObject используется для управления деятельностью вокруг OpenERP.

Вы найдете информацию о:

  • Проектах с раздельным финансированием

  • Встречах на IRC

  • Встречах в реальности (например, Днях сообщества)

  • Бизнес-аналитике

  • Отчетах (например, OpenReport, расширение OpenOffice)

A database of all the modules available for use gives you free access to most of the known Open ERP extensions.

The most recent communication tool is the launchpad system, which now hosts all of Open ERP's source code (using the bzr source code control system) and is used for reporting faults. It's become the central location for Open ERP technology.

Open ERP partners

If you need contract-backed guarantees for implementing and maintaining Open ERP you can contact an official Open ERP partner. Open ERP partners offer various services such as user training, prototype installations, and change management services. The complete list of partners by country and by type can be found on the official Open ERP site: http://openerp.com/partners.html.

Главный разработчик, компания Tiny

Finally you can call the main project developers, Tiny, who can help you in your Open ERP project. Tiny offers various services such as free demonstration days for the software, user training and technical training, support contracts, maintenance contracts and developments as required. Depending on the demand, they can also put you in contact with partners most aligned to your requirements.

To conclude, don't forget that Open ERP has more than two hundred modules available and that many of them haven't been covered in this book. So if you haven't found a solution to your problems here, look amongst those modules, talk to other Open ERP users on the forum, and don't hesitate to contact a partner.

Желаем вам успехов в реализации вашего проекта ERP,
