Functionality for Business Growth

Ostendo Operations ERP software can empower you to grow your business by providing you with the visibility and information to improve your business performance. You can use Ostendo Operations ERP software to grow your business by automating systems, increasing productivity and efficiency, improving customer service, reducing costs and reducing inventory.

Ostendo Operations is a modern agile ERP system that has the depth of functionality to scale easily to the requirements of businesses as they grow. Ostendo Operations is mature and feature rich and has the capability to meet complex business requirements.

Ostendo Operations has comprehensive functionality with the flexibility to be setup and configured in various ways to meet specific requirements.

Cloud or Server Options

Ostendo Operations ERP will soon be able to run directly on the cloud, as well as installed on an on-premise server or cloud terminal services system. This will give you the flexibility to run Ostendo in a way that suits your business.

The cloud option of Ostendo will enable the Ostendo database to be hosted in the cloud without the need for a cloud server or terminal services. It is not web-based and users connect directly to the database over the internet from the Ostendo application installed on their computer.

The client-server option enables you to install Ostendo on a local server network or on a cloud server using terminal services.

Ostendo Operations ERP runs on the Firebird SQL relational database management system that is industry strength and can scale to 100 users or more.

Both the cloud and server options for Ostendo enable you to backup your database as well as use a copy of your data for testing purposes. 

Affordable ERP System

Ostendo is not an SaaS (software as a service) application and therefore the licences are not an ongoing subscription but a one-off purchase. The only ongoing cost is an annual licence renewal fee for upgrades.

The total cost of ownership for Ostendo is significantly lower than a web-based SaaS ERP system and much more affordable for small to large businesses.

Linked to Your Accounting Programme

Ostendo Operations is designed to link with your existing MYOB AccountRight Live, Xero, Intuit QuickBooks, MoneyWorks or Reckon accounting programme. Your accounting programme becomes the financials module for Ostendo Operations ERP.

Ostendo Operations ERP is one fully integrated system linked with your accounting programme which means that all modules work and communicate together, with the financial transaction flowing into your accounting programme. This differs to a series of disparate add on solutions that link with your accounting programme separately and not with each other.

The advantages of the Ostendo accounting link integration are;

  • No need to change your accounting system or learn another programme.
  • Uninterrupted financial reporting with an implementation of Ostendo.
  • Uninterrupted relationship with your accountant and how they access your data.

Selecting the right software provider is just as crucial as selecting the right software system. The experience and qualifications of the consultant team is critical to a successful implementation.
