Presence of iDempiere in Slovakia

iDempiere is a modern ERP (enterprise resource planning) and very complex software system that can manage all accounting, process documentation, manufacturing, warehousing, logistics, service and various other operations and processes of enterprises and firms simultaneously in several accounting reports (simultaneously be a company that has, for example, a mother in Germany and a branch in the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary accounted for all four accounting reports …).

iDempiere works is that it is installed on the server (internally or externally) as a standalone system or can run as an extension of the current / parent / corporate-supported comprehensive ERP software / computer program (e.g. SAP, Oracle, Navision, SAGE, ABRA …) what is common in Slovak branches of foreign parent companies that corporate / international use some of these ERP systems. This may be interesting if the foreign mother to her Slovakian production branch with several warehouses (with material, parts, components and finished products), which is expanding corporate SAP introduced, but for process control between production and warehouse here in Slovakia (especially if you need the system to quickly add something new, something tweak or fix) is the iT support from abroad often very rigid.

Here comes the series iDempiere as an extension of a large parent control system, for example, only processes within the superstructure of production operations between production and new stores, Slovak software provided by local partner who knows if any need to respond immediately compared with the IT department for example. in Germany and Sweden, where the reaction time in some cases may take several days. A positive element in this case is sufficient confidence parent company towards the delegation of responsibilities to local Logistics / Warehouse Manager, which is in demand for IT partner is free to opt for smaller local Slovak company.

iDempiere is however a complex system that can manage corporate / business processes ranging from customer relationship management (Customer Relationship Management), including all manufacturing, warehousing, logistics (including management of material flows), financial and accounting operations, document management, archiving after service operations and property management, fleet management (corporate fleet management), internal company logistics ranging from automation to driver Assistant Systems, visitor registration and attendance of employees, delegation of rights and responsibilities of employees and partners, the recording of usage data, failure, repair or mined assets, tools and equipment, and other operations and processes that can be in the system to create, add and adjust according to the needs of a particular company and the areas in which it operates …

Why I am interested in cloudempiere?

When I met with the fact that HansaWorld Enterprise ERP/CRM software did not have sufficient WMS (warehouse management system) module and was just too expensive for our potential client I started to browse google as I always do J (but still less and less… JOKE!)

And suddenly it happened! I found something called open source ERP what I understood as „free“ ERP. „Wait a moment, Norbert!“, I told myself. The software system was ADempiere which evolved from  Compiere and when I studied it more deep, I understood that I can download the source code, customise it for clients needs or develop freely something new. I understood, that with good skilled people we can develop even our own WMS module, tailored exactly to the particular customer´s need.

So I hired such people, we worked hard, presented our solution to client and won the job!

3000 square metres warehouse with 2000 pallet positions managed by our new software! Wow!

That time, we firstly cooperated with freelance developer from Mexico, Victor Pérez, what was also another scope on the thing, because I, as the Project Manager and the key person responsible for the whole project realised, that if you have a real professional a skilled member of your team whose skilles and experiences you can rely on, you can cooperate and manage even important international projects online.

Finally, the client was so satisfied with the price of the solution and the goals we reached together, including warehouse usage optimisation, many different monitoring and reporting functions and finally, labor force costs decrease, that we joined a logistics show to present our successful cooperation together.

From that time ADempiere evolved to iDempiere using more sophisticated technologies (e.g. OSGi framework) and the challenges of high cost into the hardware, when installing the system within the client´s premises (on his own servers) motivated us to switch to cloud based SaaS solution based on Amazon cloud servers.

That is how cloudempiere was found…
