while not an ERP, vtiger actually has a good database structure that could work well with it. what exactly are you trying to do/looking for? --Phalseid 05:24, 7 August 2007 (NZST)

Since the nodal model is moving far too slowly we need an online business organisation package. It needs to handle accounts/budgetting, stock, time management, workflow etc. WebERP does it, but is a really crappy interface, TinyERP does it too, but is too hard to install so we haven't been able to check it out properly yet. --Nad 10:14, 7 August 2007 (NZST)
I'll check out vTiger when I get it installed on our server - I'm trying to integrate it in the same way as the wikia. --Nad 10:32, 7 August 2007 (NZST)
alrighty. be interested to see what you find, andrew and I are using the backend for ourselves, and have written (and are currently writing) quite a few "widgets" to facilitate work orders, product orders, time management, and project management. There is no "project management" per se in vtiger, but if you copy over the account module, and use that, it works quite well. you can use a new "account" for each project -which can be linked back to other projects (accounts), and then use the ticket system for tasks and time tracking. you can build invoices from that, but there is no link to accounting packages yet. I have a prospect who has expressed interest in that, so keep all that in mind.... --Phalseid 10:43, 7 August 2007 (NZST)
OSFinancials looks like it may be pretty good too and recently is able to integrate into vTiger --Nad 11:29, 7 August 2007 (NZST)
Thanks for the info - what are the widgets you've made for vTiger? is there a place with info about all the addons like MW has? --Nad 17:02, 7 August 2007 (NZST)
The only working widget (out in the field, geting paid for each transaction) is what we call orderdot. I am currently working on timedot. the widgets are basically discrete tasks that do not require the full interface, or, the user is too dumb or just needs a simple interface to VT, if that makes sense. Here is a list of all the current modules (for better or worse) in vtiger: http://www.vtiger.com/products/crm/module-owners.html --Phalseid 04:20, 8 August 2007 (NZST)
