My name is Paul Rolfes. I am President of the company CPC Consulting [http://www.cpcss.com/]. We are a small software integration company — so we basically will take different software packages or custom software and try to meld them together.

What prompted our search for a new ERP solution is we were a Sage dealer — or we still are a Sage dealer — we were selling the Pro series because of its ability to integrate and to have source code. So we were looking for a product that is a well-established ERP solution but also has source code. So that's why we came and looked at xTuple. Also we were looking for a product that can be used across multiple platforms — Linux, Mac, Windows — it just doesn't exist. This [xTuple ERP] is the first product that we have found that has a stable product and works across all those platforms.

Our company has supported the Sage product line — so we're a Sage 300 partner, we're also a Sage Pro series partner — we have been with the Sage Pro Series line since it was SBT back in 1995. And we also support the Sage CRM Products, so yes we have used all those different products via Sage.

What really brought our interest to xTuple was A) it has the source code, open source and B) the fact that it will run across all those different platforms — Mac, Linux and Windows — and now with the [Mobile Web application] browser. Being able to actually get to a product via the browser and have it actually feed the same database that the in-house clients are going to see, that's important to us.

Probably my biggest surprise [with xTuple ERP] is the level of Manufacturing. The manufacturing piece of the product is very in depth and very well thought out. In fact, you can tell that as initially we were looking at ERP solutions, manufacturing was part of it but it wasn't the big part of it. Now I can see where xTuple is actually huge in the manufacturing industry.
