Flexible Workflow Model

Compiere's flexible workflow model gives you the ability to define automated workflow rules that match your business practices. The system conforms to Business Process Management standards from the Workflow Management Coalition and Object Management Group.

Compiere enables three types of workflow

  • General Workflow – Provides guidance and step-by-step instructions for achieving a task. Examples: Setup Wizards or Month End procedures. A user starts them from the menu.
  • Document Process Workflow – Started when processing any document. You can use these workflows to manage approvals. Example: Special approval for orders over a certain amount.
  • Document Value Workflow – The workflow is automatically started when any entity fulfils a user defined condition. Example: Start credit approval for a new Business Partner.
Built on a Modern, Web-Based Platform

Compiere offers a highly interactive, web-based user experience while providing secure access from any web browser. Integration with other applications is easy using Compiere's service oriented architecture (SOA) and web services. Leveraging open source technology helps reduce IT infrastructure costs. And, access to application source code reduces vendor dependence and project risk.


Because of Compiere's global-ready design, your customized Compiere business solution is easier to maintain and to extend. Compiere is built to support multi-location and multi-national operations. A key part of Compiere's model-driven application platform is the ability to customize your ERP system and accounting features to the realities of your global business. Manage any number of organizations, warehouses, languages, currencies and accounting rules. You'll experience the benefits of global-ready design immediately through lower implementation costs. Over time and as your business grows in many different directions, the global-ready capabilities enable significantly more functionality along with reduced maintenance costs.

Multisite Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP)

Compiere delivers broad multisite ERP features, providing end-to-end planning and control to streamline and automate critical business processes, lower costs, and drive efficiency. Its Manufacturing component encompasses material requirements planning (MRP), production control, cost management, and reporting, while the Materials Management component addresses products, price lists, inventory receipts, shipments, movements, and counts. Compiere also supports purchasing, including the creation of requisitions, purchase orders, receipt of vendor invoices, and payment processing. The system even provides an integrated Warehouse Management component that automates inbound, warehousing, and outbound operations to improve productivity, space utilization, and customer satisfaction.

Order Management & Global Financial Management

Tightly integrated with the system’s Materials Management and Customer Relationship Management (CRM) components, Compiere’s Order Management component covers the business processes required for quote creation, sales order management, invoicing, and the receipt of cash. Compiere also supports your company’s global financial management processes, automating financial, distribution, sales, and service tasks and centralizing your enterprise data in a single repository. By integrating enterprise-wide business processes and data, Compiere provides you with reliable information for accurate financial reporting and informed decision-making.

Customer Relationship Management (CRM)

Compiere’s CRM capabilities help you more efficiently manage your sales processes and get a 360-degree view of interactions with your customers. The Sales component supports automated processing of customer requests, helps manage marketing campaign mailings and follow ups, and can provide insights on revenue and gross profit for specific customers or groups. Compiere E-Commerce is an online store, fully integrated with the rest of your ERP data and business rules – so it doesn’t require periodic synchronization with your ERP or complex integration. The solution utilizes cascading style sheets ensuring that your web store looks and feels consistent with your external website. Compiere Service provides a system for compiling and tracking service-related activities from initiation to closure.

Performance Management, Analytics, and Reporting

Compiere provides executives and managers with multiple views of operational performance and activities in the organization. The system offers four internal standard report types: list reports (queries based on flexible fields and parameters), forms (business documents, like invoices, that conform to a specific print layout), financial reports, and statements of accounts. Compiere’s Business View Layer enables end-users and report designers to securely access pre-defined or custom views of data regarding customers, vendors, products, sales orders, invoices, and shipments. Compiere also provides intuitive, role-based management dashboards with drill-down capabilities. Dashboards include standard charts, graphs, and KPIs, so you can use them out-of-the-box or easily create and customize new dashboards – no programming needed.
