Compiere Summer News

Compiere is slowly getting main stream. All analysts cover/mention Compiere and more and more competition sales reps / speakers are ranting about Compiere without being explicitly asked. This means that our competition not only views Compiere as a serious threat, but that they have not figured out how to compete with Compiere.

We agree with the analysts, that Compiere is the disruptive force in the ERP & CRM industry ;-)

Improved Compiere Training
--------------------------

The Compiere Training Format has changed:
- The Intensive Training was a bit too "intensive" so we extended the Advanced Training by one day and moved customization subjects like WorkFlow and advanced functionality like RfQ, Ship/Receive Confirmations and Inter-Org Documents.
- The next 5 day Intensive Training is 13-17 September in Toronto, Canada and is targeted to "SuperUsers" who are implementing Compiere. The emphasis is on Functionality.
- The next 3 day Advanced Training is 20-22 September in Toronto, Canada and is targeted to people who want to customize and extend Compiere. The emphasis is Technical, but assumes a strong functional knowledge of Compiere achieved by attending the Intensive Training.

Just 9 days left to reserve your place and to secure the early bird discount:

Please make your hotel reservations by August 14th as that is the last date the hotel can guarantee the discounted room rate.

Compiere Manufacturing
----------------------

In a Meeting in late June, we defined the Compiere Manufacturing Strategy. In Release 2.5.2, we will start implementing an enhanced BOM structure with versions & ECN. The "Core Compiere" Manufacturing solution will concentrate on cross-industry requirements, whereas the different Compiere Manufacturing projects will concentrate on advanced and industry specific functionality as well as Shop Floor.
