"To get started with OpenERP Online (the hosted solution), companies first register for an online account and a free 30-day trial is activated upon registration. After creating your account, you will need to go through the initial process of providing your business information and choosing a custom URL to access your OpenERP.

"A configuration Wizard will guide you through the initial set-up process, making recommendations. When starting with OpenERP Online, all business application modules are available, but you can use a simplified version with fewer features and configure only specific applications from the get-go and add more features later by clicking the 'Reconfigure' button in the admin dashboard.

"Available modules include customer relationship management (CRM), project management, warehouse management, invoicing, purchase management, sales management, knowledge management, manufacturing, accounting & finance and human resources. You can also choose to install industry-specific applications for associations, food industry or auction houses.

"The difference between this version of Open ERP and the Community or Enterprise versions is that online includes additional services such as hosting, database management, stable security update, backups, maintenance, bug fixing and migrations."
