"My name is Aaron Bean. I'm a consultant with Beardon Services. We're kind of a small boutique consulting business. We deal a lot with Oklahoma State University, and we do the kind of projects they have a difficult time hiring the technical expertise to do programming projects, network management, things like that. One of our major clients, Fire Protection Publications, had been using AS400 and a system called Magellan to do their accounting, their sales, things like that. It's a very old system, and it just needed to be replaced. So we went out and spent a discovery period of almost six months just looking at different solutions. And for the size of their company, xTuple seemed to have the largest feature set."

"We'll have Fire Protection Publications [on xTuple] by year's end and, hopefully, Fire Service Training early next year. These organizations aren't huge so it will be very attractive to have a really solid accounting package for them that can be implemented for a relatively low cost of entry."

"The open source aspect was really attractive to us. We actually have a developer right now who is using that to develop something that we hope to share with the community if we can work it out nicely. We've always been big open source proponents, so this seemed like a perfect fit."
