OpenERP in Kenya.
To any business an ERP system represents a leap from manual to new age IT automation. For many years this leap also meant a huge leap with regard to the cost of investment necessary to leverage on the immense power of ICT as a means of improving organizational efficiency. At Tarakilishi Technologies , we pride ourselves in providing IT solutions for the SME and never has a bet on an ERP of the future panned out more than OpenERP 7.
OpenERP is an opensource ERP from the Belgium company TInyErp. The ERP has grown over the last few years from a by the way hobbyist ERP software to the most installed ERP software in the world. We at Tarakilishi have been using OpenERP for the last 3 years, at time when it was full of bugs and modules numbered less than 200. However, we know a good idea when we see one. OpenERP in Kenya is a new phenomenon, in a land saturated with the likes of powerhouses such as Microsoft Dynamics and Sage for the large corporate and Quickbooks for the fledgling SME in Kenya. That is about to change with the coming of age of Openerp in OpenERP 7.0
So whats so good about OpenERP 7
OpenERP 7 has continued with the philosophy of OpenERP 6 of being entirely web based. The system is entirely built on python and the web front and server end are now completely integrated unlike before.
They have also integrated all the apps into the system such that they are all not semi autonomous as before , but fully integrated in both data and installation.
But why is Tarakilishi so excited about OpenERP 7
The greatest change and what is exciting us at Tarakilishi is the new features and core modules that have been added:
- The new fleet management module.
With the ability to now manage and track all matters relating to your vehicle fleet: Fuel, Repair,Mileage your life as a manager just became so much easier. The system will ensure that companies can now develop business intelligence on their vehicle fleets and when coupled with the new and improved asset management module, the results will be astounding.
- Integrated CRM and Accounting Functionality.
These two major modules are now seamlessly connected, such that not only can you see your current business with current partners but you can also tailor your marketing, campaigns based on the mathematics you picking from your accounts. You cant get more intelligent and pin point than this. Better yet the Email system is no longer rocket science when you need to configure it as before!
- Payroll and HR system.
The payroll system is the other major beneficiary of the makeover. The system now supports complex Income tax regimes like Kenya’s enabling Tarakilishi Technologies to easily automate your Payroll. The HR system also automates the Hiring process from application all the way to the final offer. You also get automated payslip generation and mailing. The capabilities here warrant a whole post in the future just to cover them all.
These are just but three major changes made to OpenERP 7, but there are so many other minute but significant changes that have made this ERP awesome.
