North America’s largest metal forming, fabricating, welding and finishing exposition welcomes Open Source xTuple


Manufacturing operations professionals get first look at integrated xTuple ERP and eCommerce

xTuple open source business management software introduces xTupleCommerce — to help manufacturers sell more products online and better service customers — at FABTECH 2015, known as one of North America’s primary gatherings of metal forming, fabricating, welding and finishing operations management professionals.

Mission-driven to help companies of all sizes successfully implement powerful, and easy-to-use, open source Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software to grow their business profitably, xTuple now delivers direct self-service, 24/7 access, from anywhere in the world to an organization's business partners and customers.

Manufacturing operations professionals gather at FABTECH to discover the latest industry products and developments, and find the tools to improve productivity and increase profits. The FABTECH conference celebrates metal manufacturing at its best with educational sessions and expert-led presentations covering the latest trends and technology in the metal forming, fabricating, welding and finishing industries, a natural fit for the introduction of xTupleCommerce, affordable real-time eCommerce solutions for business.

xTuple ERP empowers every enterprise with eCommerce — seamlessly connecting online, retail, wholesale, supplier, inside and outside sales. xTupleCommerce is a robust business application used by organizations doing large business transactions.

xTupleCommerce users report new monthly sales in the hundreds of thousands of dollars, from both existing and new customers.

Fabricators with Manufacturer's Reps use xTupleCommerce to represent many customers of their own and make purchases on behalf of each customer. This allows for fast and efficient order-processing with notifications, special pricing, and more upsell opportunities. Managers may also log in and see each customer's pending orders, saved carts, current cart of items, shipping addresses, etc., and even process an order on behalf of a customer.

xTupleCommerce customers report that their customers find the system to be efficient, intuitive, and much less an eCommerce site than a customer service-oriented business tool. Customers are not required to be “computer savvy.” There is no learning curve, ramp-up time, or training. New customers go “live” with their xTupleCommerce site and start seeing the benefit in increased revenue and improved customer satisfaction.

Traditional eCommerce systems can charge upwards of hundreds of thousands of dollars, while the cost of xTupleCommerce can be recouped with the increase in revenue achieved in just one year, an impressive return-on-investment (ROI).

"When the sites go-live and orders start coming in overnight, or from buyers that the website owner has never met, it becomes obvious to our customer that xTupleCommerce is a 24-hour sales machine," said Josh Fischer, manager of xTuple Web Services Group.

xTupleCommerce is available as a quick and basic, templated site or as a large-scale, customized project, and a sample site is available for guided demonstrations.
