The ERPNext Platform
The ERPNext platform is trusted by users across 60 countries & Available in 30+ languages. It is a simple, powerful and comprehensive ERP solution which is affordable and easy to use, that can be hosted on cloud or on premise. Built for small and medium sized businesses across the world, ERPNext is PERFECT for GROWING COMPANIES. It is designed to grow with you. We provide the following functionalities:
Customer Relationship Management (CRM) - Track opportunities, prepare quotes, and record orders and shipments. Communicate with customers via email, or newsletters. Distribute commissions to sales partner or teams. Apply pricing and discounts based on rules. Record warranty claims and their resolution.
Human Resources Management (HR) - Another important aspect in the ERP is human resource management. Right from the planning of resources to the attendance and the leave report, everything is well integrated into this system. New employees can be added from Human Resource-> Employee ->New . Track attendance, allocate leaves, and manage leave applications. Record and approve expense claims. Generate monthly payroll and integrate it with accounts. Manage available positions and job applications.
When employees spend some money from their own pocket for official purposes, they can claim these by raising a new expense claim. The salary and payroll is also well integrated in this ERP. The Salary Structure represents how Salaries are calculated based on Earnings and Deductions. To process Payroll in ERPNext, one has to first create Salary Structures for all Employees, then generate salary slips via the salary management tool, and then book the salary in the respective accounts. By creating a new Job opening in the portal, we can also share the information about the job.
Stock Management - Stock maintenance is also very important in ERP, and this has been thoroughly dealt with in this tool. If we want to request for material, then we must go to Stock->Documents->Material request-> New. The material request is categorised into three types—Purchase (if the requested material is to be purchased), Transfer (if the material is to be transferred from one warehouse to another) and Issue (if the material is to be issued)to ease the process. The Stock entry is used to record the transfer of an item from one warehouse to another. When shipment is made from the warehouse, a delivery note is generated. The warehouse, being the most important part of Stock, must be under constant scrutiny and for this, one can go to Stock->Warehouse. In ERPNext, every warehouse must belong to a specific company, in order to maintain company-wise stock balances. Warehouses are saved with their respective company's abbreviations. This helps to identify which warehouse belongs to which company, at a glance..
Point of Sale - Use the touch-friendly POS interface to quickly record a Bill, its Payment and the resulting inventory reduction. Manage per-location settings like currency, cash / bank account, taxes, and terms and conditions.
Buying & Inventory - Payments made against Sales Invoices or Purchase Invoices can be entered by clicking on the Make Payment Entry button on Submitted invoices. The credit limit is also built into this. The credit limit is the maximum amount of credit that a financial institution will extend to a debtor for a specific line of credit. This can be achieved by going to Selling->Document->Customer. Automatically raise material requests, send POs to suppliers, and record purchase receipts. Track inventory levels per warehouse and make corrections on manual inspection. Use batches and serial numbers, get stock valuation, and use automated inventory accounting.
Manufacturing - Plan your production and material requirements using production planning tool. Make production schedule based on workstation availability. Use hierarchical bill of materials and costing. Sub-contract / outsource part of the manufacturing process and include its cost into the resulting products.

The accounts part of the package contains Journal Entry, Sales Invoice, Chart of Accounts, Making Payments, Accounting Reports, Item-wise Tax, Point of Sales invoices, and many more features. All types of entries other than sales invoices and purchase invoices are done using Journal Entry.

CRM - Customer Relationship Management
Moving on to customer relations management, ERPNext's CRM module contains leads, customers, opportunities, campaigns and many other features. Leads are important because they help a company to make a sale. Since there are multiple contacts and addresses for a customer or supplier, these leads are stored separately in ERPNext. Even the campaign is managed in the Campaign tab and tracked via the Leads UI.
Distribution - Keep track of inventory, sales, serial numbers, batches across locations and warehouses. Manage billing, expenses and purchasing.
Retail Function - The buying and selling of goods is also managed, and here the user can generate quotations for clients as well as keep a track of suppliers quotations.

The ERPNext Web portal gives ones customers quick access to their Orders, Invoices and Shipments. Customers can check the status of their orders, invoices and shipping status by logging on to the Web. To log into their account and check the order status, customers have to use their email ID and the password sent by ERPNext, generated through the sign-up process. The best part is that ERPNext provides Web support, i.e., static content like Home page, About Us and Contacts can be created using the Web page by going to Website-> Web Page->New. ERPNext also offers customisation. One can simplify the forms by hiding features not needed, by using Disable Features, Module Setup, Add Custom Fields.
