"OpenERP seems to be a rarity among open source business software companies. There are no special enterprise editions — open source and paying customers get the exact same software and features — yet the company has managed to turn a profit on services and hosted solutions.

""Exactly the same software is available for both customers and downloads," OpenERP COO Marc Laporte told eCRMguide. "We don't have an enterprise edition."

"The five-year-old Belgian company, which recently opened a U.S. office in San Jose, has assembled a broad ERP offering that includes CRM, purchasing, warehouse management, manufacturing, project management, accounting and human resources modules. The modules can be implemented individually, allowing users to gradually build out their ERP systems into a "fully integrated ERP solution," Laporte said."
