I’m a big fan of ERPNext and in it I found one of the greatest tools for my business. The fact that it is a living, open-sourced software makes it relevant and updated.
I’ve seen that one downside and a large barrier for user adoption is the fact that once you want to make a greater personalization (i.e. create a custom app) you have to opt out from the ERPNext hosting.
This might not be a great issue for programmers and/or true experts. But for regular users, which use ERPNext managing our businesses it is a big hassle and high cost because it means finding a local ERPNext expert (there aren’t many) to help us host our instance and develop custom apps.
I believe a potential solution to this problem is to develop an open “appstore” to give an incentive for developers to monetize their creations (and therefore increase the amount and quality of apps) and an easier way for users to customize their ERPnexts.
What do you think?
