Compiere provides fully
integrated and easy to use first tier functionality for mid-market enterprises.

Unlike traditional systems it is organised to map onto the typical business processes as shown below.

It is provided as a complete, integrated unitary system rather than a series of loosely coupled modules with data transfers between them.

Business processes rather than traditional departments drive Compiere's design and in today's world, especially in mid-market enterprises, employees often perform entire business processes or related processes.

Compiere Business Process

Quote to Cash

Quote to Cash covers the business processes used for creating quotations for prospects or customers, sales order management, invoicing and cash receipting. The functionality is tightly integrated with Supply Chain Management and Customer Relationship Management components of Compiere. This functionality is typically found in modules entitled sales order entry and accounts receivable.

Requisition to Pay

Requisition to Pay covers the business process used for creating purchase orders, processing invoices received
from vendors and generating payments. The functionality is tightly integrated with Supply Chain Management.
This functionality is typically found in modules entitled purchasing and accounts payable.

Open Item Management

Open Item Management automates the processes associated with the entry and allocation of cash received from customers and payments made to creditors. Open Item Management also provides for the reconciliation of bank statements and cash books. At the time of reconciliation Compiere provides functions to allow for the reconciliation
of in-transit payments and bank charges or the creation of payments for direct debit transfers.

Customer Relations Management

Customer Relations Management is an integrated module providing a logical view of all customer and prospect
related activities. Therefore, there are (in contrast to traditional CRM systems) no batch or synchronisation
processes with the back-office functionality.

Partner Relations Management

Partner Relations Management links different clients to each other allowing them to manage lead distribution, service requests, collateral distribution and marketing expenses. It facilitates the provision of shared (centralised) services
by one organisational entity to other organisational entities. This functionality enables organisations which manage
a number of wholly or partly owned entities (such as a franchise operation) to provide centralised services to the remote operations.

Supply Chain Management

Supply Chain Management covers all material management activities including inventory receipts, shipments, movements and stocktake count management and processing

Performance Analysis

Performance Analysis covers the costing and accounting dimension of the application. This functionality is typically
found in Reporting and General Ledger modules as well as in those modules that generate accounting entries.

Web Store and Business Partner Self Service

The Compiere Web Store allows an organisation to maintain and operate a web presence. The information made available on web and in the web store is shared with the standard application. No synchronisation or additional integration is required. The web store components can be customised to the look-and-feel required to match an
existing web site and in addition to webstore capability also provide self service functionality to enable Business Partners to view their transactions online with an appropriate level of security.
