Global open source accounting, ERP and CRM software innovator posts another
quarter of record revenues
NORFOLK, VA, USA – November 8, 2012 – Fueled by a surge of new customers
in manufacturing and distribution, commercial open source software vendor xTuple reported
its second consecutive record quarter of sales for 2012 – and pushed ahead with its
groundbreaking new Mobile Web application strategy.
Revenue was up 74% over the third quarter last year – and sales in the first three quarters
of 2012 were up 59% overall from the same time period in 2011.
The company, which develops customizable business management software for growing companies
from startups to Global 1000, added U.S.-heartland manufacturing customers, such as Kansas-
based XLT Ovens, Texas-based Cornerstone Automation Systems and North Dakota-based Dakota
Prairie Organic Flours, as well as distribution customers including multi-national brands
Alliance Games (a division of Diamond Comics) and Richmond Wholesale, serving the food
needs of the Pacific Rim and U.S. military.
Ryan Greve of Cornerstone Automation Systems said, “We were drawn to xTuple based
on the fact that it’s open source. What set xTuple apart from other systems is its
modularity. You have options, so you don’t have to get a million dollar system.
Yet, it’s uniquely setup so that, when you’re ready, migration is very simple.
That was a key factor for us. The usability of it for an operator — it handles a
complex business as simply as possible without short-cutting it.”
xTuple also entered final public beta testing of its next generation Mobile Web CRM
(corporate/customer relationship management) solution, which runs on any tablet,
smartphone or desktop web browser. The Mobile Web app will be completely interoperable
with the existing xTuple Desktop software and available beginning with version 4.0 of
xTuple ERP, due out in December.
Mobile Web beta tester Scott Zuke of Core Service Group said, “Amazingly fast!
The first time I used the new interface I had to verify that data was actually
being updated. It was so fast that I had missed the screen refresh. The ability
to use this on my phone and tablet provides a new level of flexibility. We were
about to develop a custom application that would support both iOS and Android,
but now we don’t have to develop either one. I can focus my resources elsewhere.
The Mobile Web app is a game changing development.”
The company continues to hire aggressively in engineering, sales, support and professional
services. John Rogelstad, who has led several major phases of product development –
including the Mobile Web app effort – since joining the company in 2007, was promoted to
vice president of software development.
“I’m tremendously proud of the team we continue to build at xTuple,” said CEO Ned Lilly.
“Our customers and partners continue to give us very high marks for product quality and
support, and we are driving innovation that companies many times our size have not been
able to achieve.”
In xTuple Partner news, the number of technology experts who work in the field as
deployable consultants continues to grow exponentially, especially in the Americas
and the Pacific Rim. The annual xTuple Partner Conference will be held in early December
at the company’s East Coast U.S. headquarters. More information on the xTuple Partner
Program may be found at xTuple’s Partner Program.
