Odoo (previously known as OpenERP), the leader in open source ERP and business applications, has announced today the availability of the Release Candidate of Odoo v6, a major software line upgrade that makes implementation and use of a comprehensive set of business applications — CRM, Purchase Management, Manufacturing, Warehouse Management, Project Management, Accounting, and Human Resources — far easier, more affordable and accessible for companies of all sizes.
The Release Candidate is a finalized version of Odoo v6, which is available to the Odoo community and customers so they can evaluate and provide feedback for a final version release in December 2010.
Odoo was designed to overcome traditional barriers that prevent many companies from acquiring the ERP and business applications they need to run and support their businesses. The current success of Odoo’s software — with 1,000 downloads daily — is based on the absence of any licensing fees, the flexibility to customize the application without costly and time-consuming development requirements, the availability of over 500 software modules developed by the Odoo community, and the flexibility to deploy applications either on-site or online.
With v6, Odoo brings this vision one step further: Bringing Together the Best of Salesforce.com and SAP
