Open-source ERP and CRM software maker xTuple has released xTupleCommerce – version 2.0 of its eCommerce Web portal — and acquired Web consultancy Artsmith Media to support customer demand for the offering.
Companies running their internal operations with xTuple ERP can now conduct business — both consumer and trade sales and service — with a public, customer-facing website that includes real-time, two-way integration. All business logic and customer-specific pricing, order history, multiple images, documents and rich descriptions of items are maintained in one database. Online orders are immediately processed within xTuple, including all business workflows defined in the ERP system, including manufacturing, shipping and billing (whether an online payment or customer terms).
