Openbravo Selected as InfoWorld 2011 Best of Open Source Application Award ‘Bossie’ Fourth Time in Five Years
Recognition reinforces Sysfore’s Openbravo Service Offerings in India & the Middle East

Bangalore, India – October 10th, 2011 – Sysfore’s partner, Openbravo, the agile ERP company, has been named by InfoWorld as one of the ‘Best of Open Source Applications’, popularly known as the ‘Bossie’ award. InfoWorld’s Bossies honor the best open source software for business. The InfoWorld Test Center works to identify the most promising and cost-effective products available to IT organizations.

InfoWorld described Openbravo by stating: “Openbravo rides Version 3 to a repeat Bossie Award. With the new version, the company has done a nice job of cleaning up the user interface and workspaces. Data sources and app hooks are more seamlessly connected, vastly improving ramp-up time. A more modular framework for plugging in sales, finance, warehouse, and purchasing functionality paves the way for faster adoption of these functions as future requirements demand. You’ll find good tools for plugging in users, too, thanks to role-based access controls and custom dashboards. And finally, a variety of deployment paths (including the Amazon cloud) make it that much easier to get started. With the recent opening of offices stateside (San Francisco), Openbravo has helped allay concerns regarding support and sustainability going forward”.

Openbravo 3, launched in February 2011, introduced the concept of ‘Agile ERP’ to a software category known historically for bloat and cost overruns. Openbravo’s Agile ERP approach is a significant departure from mainstream ERP, which forces businesses to over-pay for massive, yet inflexible systems. Unlike today’s conventional ERP, organizations can deploy Openbravo in as little as two weeks, and then add modular functionality as the needs of their business evolve.

Sysfore is a specialist Openbravo partner in India, and offers different flavors of Openbravo implementations including, traditional ERP implementations within the company firewall, and for the first time in India & the Middle East - Openbravo ERP Software as a Service or ‘SaaS’.

“In the Open source ERP space, Openbravo focuses on constantly enhancing solutions, and feature sets. We especially appreciate the efforts put in by the product & technology teams in making Openbravo's user interface one of the best among ERP products. It is no surprise that Openbravo has won this award again this year, and for the 4th time”, says Ajith George, Director of Projects at Sysfore.

Sysfore’s Bobby Varghese, VP - Marketing & Customer Engagement said, “Sysfore takes pride in being an Openbravo partner offering services in India and Middle East and bringing to market a serious, viable and cost effective alternative to mainstream commercial ERP solutions. We look forward to a long term successful relationship with Openbravo in providing ERP consulting and implementation services to small and medium businesses”.
