UK-based Accounting leader partners with xTuple, gives back to disability community


Earns “Authorized Consultant” status to deliver open source business software solutions in United Kingdom

xTuple, the leader in commercial open source ERP, expands their worldwide network by awarding United Kingdom-based partnership to Horton Accounting Services Ltd.

With over a decade of enterprise resource planning (ERP) experience, primarily with SAP, Horton Accounting Services Ltd. specializes in providing services to business of all sizes, from small businesses to large organizations. They will now deliver xTuple’s ERP, CRM, and accounting technology solutions to small- to medium-sized distributors and manufacturers throughout the UK.

According to director Tom Horton, “We are delighted to be working with xTuple in bringing their sophisticated software to the UK market.”

Horton discovered xTuple through the global open source community, and the software’s affordability and functionality, ease of use, and complete end-to-end integration for all business operational needs were all factors in his decision to become a partner.

“We are experiencing a steady increase in market activity throughout Europe and in particular the UK. Together, Horton and xTuple will deliver high quality business software solutions and services to help local companies grow,” said Danielle Kerner, director of partner channel business development.

Keen to help support local groups and charities in their community, Horton developed and runs a voluntary project called The Work Train (#TheWorkTrain) which helps disabled and disadvantaged people learn office skills to help them get a job and fight against discrimination in the workplace.

Horton is an active member of the Accounts Payable Association and their local chamber of commerce. Recent accolades include finalist in the "Ethical Business" category of the Worcestershire Business Awards.
