Guiding Principles

webERP has been designed and developed with very specific goals in mind. These goals have consistently underpinned development since its inception:

  • Fast, web-based, integrated "best practise" business administration software.
  • "Low footprint" efficient and fast, with absolutely minimal network traffic
  • Platform Independence with no reliance on any propriety technologies
  • Scripts easily readable and modifiable by a business


Accounting in the Cloud

The concept of "cloud computing" where the application can live anywhere on the internet and be delivered to the business through "the cloud" has become THE buzz-word "du jour" and the benefits are now widely understood. "Cloud computing" has been a reality for webERP adopters since 2003 - now 10 years ago!! This demonstrates just how far ahead of it's time it was when first released. webERP adopters have enjoyed the benefits of fast access from anywhere, anytime and saved the significant costs of server purchase, maintenance and administration for many years already!
