"Double Choco Latte (DCL), a work order and help desk management system, today announced that it will be merging into GNU Enterprise (GNUe), a GNU Package. These two projects give individual and corporate users software freedom for enterprise applications through the GNU General Public License, which grants and defends users' freedoms to copy, share, modify, and redistribute software.

"DCL has always had a vision of creating an integrated set of applications," said Michael Dean, Lead Developer of Double Choco Latte, "The merging of these two projects will accelerate the process of making that vision a reality. Additionally, the GNUe tools will provide a very robust and customizable framework on which to build, integrate, and extend DCL in ways that would have required significantly more development effort. GNUe and DCL together will help create solutions that meet the requirements of an organization's ERP or CRM needs."

By putting DCL under the GNUe umbrella, additional resources will be immediately devoted to it. DCL and its existing PHP interfaces will quickly be available under the GNUe Application Framework. DCL will be better modularized. Stronger customer management and billing/invoicing by project/work order will be the first of many new features. DCL will become the project management package of GNUe and will use GNUe modules for many of its components."
