The Department of Public Works has chosen iDempiere open-source ERP. Their intention is to make their inhouse IE-Works solution produce accounting General Ledger (GL) transactions and to provide GRAP compliance. There will be extensive and tight integration between these products. Tapping on the vast functionality that iDempiere provides, will make the IE-Works suite easily extendable in the near future.
One of the founding members of both Adempiere and iDempiere ERP, Redhuan d. Oon, came to South Africa recently. He visited nTier Software Services, as part of his mission to meet and bolster the local iDempiere community. A discussion was held on our current experiences and the future of iDempiere.
nTier Software Services was awarded the contract to build a new Arms Control and Asset Tracking System. Their service offering included analysis, software development, data migration, user training, implementation and support. The system is 'live' and we have received good support to date.
nTier Software Services was awarded a service contract by my employer, the Water Research Commission (WRC) to build a Funds Management System (FMS) in 2005, the electronic system used to manage all WRC-funded proposal submissions and projects. The FMS has been in operation for 9 years at the WRC and we have received good support from nTier.
