webERP is an open-source web-based ERP system.

The latest release is 4.03.5 released 27th March 2011

This web-site is a "wiki" where all those who wish to contribute their experiences and knowledge of webERP can do so. If you have questions please use the mailing lists. We warmly welcome people interested in getting involved in the project and we've made up some guidelines to ease the pain. This link also outlines the goals/mission of the project. Many businesses have similar requirements of their ERP software and webERP aims to be a community of businesses working co-operatively on webERP.

What Is webERP?


webERP is a complete web based accounting/ERP system that requires only a web-browser and pdf reader to use. It has a wide range of features suitable for many businesses particularly distributed businesses in wholesale and distribution and manufacturing. It is developed as an open-source application and is available as a free download to use. The feature set is continually expanding as new businesses and developers adopt it.
There are on average 5,000 downloads per month.

The growth of webERP adoption has been entirely through word of mouth testimony - there has never been a marketing or advertising push to "sell" webERP. Of course there are no funds nor commercial incentive to do so for free software. Instead this growth is built on reputation and solid practical functionality that works as tried and tested by an increasing number of businesses.


webERP is developed using the PHP (PHP Hypertext Pre-Processor) web development language. Again PHP is an open-source development environment and the rigour applied to its development and review of its code is the reason why it has become one of the most popular and respected web-development platforms. Performance of well written PHP applications in a web-environment are arguably without peer. webERP is no exception.

webERP scripts are developed with consistency and simplicity in mind so that the PHP scripts that make up webERP are readable with only a basic knowledge of PHP scripting and the webERP structure. Every opportunity is taken to remove abstraction from the code to make the logic as clear as possible to the reader of the code. Simple code makes for easily modifiable code should another function be required.

webERP can be easily configured on any operating system and the computer processing requirements are surprisingly light. With web-hosting so competitively priced, 3rd party hosting external to the business effectively minimises any internal IT costs of maintaining the server. Then only a connection to the internet is required to use webERP.


Cloud Computing


This concept of "cloud computing" where the application can live anywhere on the internet and be delivered to the business through "the cloud" has become a major trend in recent times and the benefits are now widely understood. "Cloud computing" has been a reality for webERP users for several years already and in many respects has been ahead of it's time.

Any OS for both Server and Client Access


webERP can run on any web-server - Windows IIS, Apache or any web-server at all - it doesn't matter.

Any device that has internet access can run webERP as a client - desktop, notebook netbook or phone all functionality is available.

It is easy to develop functionality to meet precisely the requirements of your business. webERP developers are keen to work with your business to develop solutions you need.

In labour markets where it is increasingly difficult to retain good staff this flexibility in where work is performed can be a key advantage to employers.

It has translations to 27 different languages - each user can see the screens in their own language and in their own graphical theme.

Why webERP?


webERP is an Open Source project. As such there are no fees associated with using the system. What is more, there is competition between service providers to provide the best and most cost effective support. Service providers are more readily available because the availability of the source code enables those with PHP knowledge (the web-programming language used by webERP) to be able to identify exactly what processing is performed by the system. In proprietary systems this information is often not available even to licensed support providers - they need to communicate back to the software vendor for a response. With the information available to support people, the quality of the support is likely also to be better.

webERP has a wide variety of features suitable for managing businesses of many differing forms. From the face of a simple menu structure, complex business processes are easily accessible - such as multiple inventory locations, multiple currencies, lot and serial number tracking of inventory - see Features

All features are integrated with each other. Inputs are required just once. Everywhere the change is propagated across the system.
