ERP5 Mobile Released and Certified for Nokia E61

Kristian Rother writes "Paris (France), New York (USA) and Tokyo (Japan), January 28th 2007 - Nexedi, the creator of ERP5, the most advanced open source / free ERPplatform, has released the first open source ERP for smartphones today: ERP5 Mobile. This new component of the ERP5 family will be presented simultaneously to the public during the Linux Solutions 2007 exhibition in Paris and to selected ERP5 users in Tokyo and New York.

      The addition of ERP5 Mobile to the collection of freely available
      Business Templates makes it possible to access ERP5 from any web
      enabled mobile device such as the Nokia E61 smartphone. According to
      Jean-Paul Smets, CEO of Nexedi, "The user interface of ERP5 Mobile has
      been designed with the special requirements of mobile devices in mind
      and is optimized for easy and efficient access to ERP5 on small

      Kristian Rother, Nexedi Marketing VP adds, "This latest Business
      Template has turned ERP5 into a truly pervasive system. ERP5 Mobile
      can be used anywhere to query, update and enter employee or customer
      data from the ERP system or to view production schedules and
      accounting transactions."

      "ERP5 Mobile saves lots of time for our sales force because they can
      access our CRM at any time even if they don't have access to a
      computer and especially because they don't have to reinsert data that
      they collected in the field into the ERP later." says Thierry
      Brettnacher Vice President, Consulting of ERP5.

      The web enabled and standard compliant Nokia E61 smartphone was
      certified for ERP5 Mobile as "reference development environment". The
      Nokia E61 smartphone was selected because of its effective design and
      because of the implication of Nokia (with the exception of its patent
      department) in favour of open source / free software such as Python.

      ERP5 Mobile can be downloaded from the public repository at ERP5
      located at http://svn.erp5.org./ A screen video which gives an overview
      of ERP5 Mobile is available at

      ERP5 Mobile and ERP5 will be shown and explained by the Nexedi team
      during the Linux Solutions 2007 conference in Paris, France from
      January 30th to February 1st 2006. Nexedi shares booth D32 with its
      partner Mandriva Linux. For more information about the conference
