Aptean Announces Release of Compiere Version 3.8

User Feedback Drives Improvements to Order Entry, Scalability, and More

Atlanta, September 27, 2012 — Aptean, a global leader in enterprise application software (EAS) and services for companies of all sizes, today announced the release of Compiere Version 3.8 (Compiere v3.8), which incorporated customer guidance in the design and development of improved features.

As with the previous Compiere release, v3.8 utilized feature teams and a formal beta process that emphasized customer participation and feedback, and includes many new features and enhancements, such as:

  • Support for high-volume order entry.
  • Information widget, which provides key user-defined information for any screen.
  • Customer consigned inventory.
  • Automated three-way purchase order matching.
  • Scalability enhancements using multiple application servers and multi-threading.

“The release of Compiere v3.8 marks another important step in bringing the development efforts onto the same customer-driven enhancement model as our other Aptean (formerly Consona Corporation) products. User participation was the key to defining this release and developing the new feature and enhancements. We were also able to incorporate functionality that was developed as part of services engagements, a process we hope to accelerate in the future,” said Frank O’Nell, vice president of product management for Aptean.
