BlueSeer is an open source ERP project created for the general manufacturing community. It is a completely free ERP and EDI solutions package for small to medium size businesses. There are no keys, trial periods, or registration...its free. BlueSeer is unlike other open source ERPs that provide 'limited' free options. BlueSeer aims to be the first universally free ERP with the singular goal to provide businesses with a freeware alternative to high cost commercial ERPs. BlueSeer ERP was developed for manufacturing companies who wish to customize and maintain their own software without the need for high cost proprietary support or the hurdles of proprietary source code. BlueSeer's design, toolset, and open source availability favor the large community of java and database developers to support customization and maintenance, and therefore is a serious contender for companies that are looking for better less costly software solutions. BlueSeer ERP is a truly free open source ERP offering that is unlike other 'bait and click' ERP offerings. We encourage you to download it and give it a spin.
