xTupler #46 — Your New Year starts now

xTupler #46  |  December 2017


Dear Community —

xTuple’s holiday party (pictured above): What a great opportunity to reflect on accomplishments in 2017 — and look ahead to an exciting 2018!

xTuple’s open source community grew exponentially: Over half of our new license sales came from companies upgrading from free PostBooks® to a commercial edition or happy customers recommending us. One such referral we call the "xTuple journey(wo)man" — a power user who implemented xTuple at one company and does it again somewhere else. Workforce mobility is very real; we're happy to see you advancing your career with xTuple software. Be sure to add xTuple skills to your LinkedIn profile!

Team xTuple met more of you in person: Our roadshow events were a big hit, and we're looking forward to doing more… stay tuned for more events in 2018!

xTupleCommerce 1.0 is inches away: Many customers already live in-production with our Customer Web Portal have seen significant upticks in their online business. In fact, you can combine it with an upgrade to Enterprise edition of xTuple and/or move to our managed Cloud service, all for some fantastic year-end savings. Time is running out on 2017 offer!

xTuple XPRESS for ERP Success launches soon: Enterprise, Cloud and Web Portal fixed-fee implementation with a 90-day guarantee. "What?" you say, "that can't be real!" There are caveats, to be sure, but if you've put off that much-needed ERP implementation because of concerns over time suck and cost overruns, this will the program for you!

Contact our sales team today to find out more. We wish you and yours a wonderful and restorative holiday season, and we'll see you in 2018!
