GGG: Why do you think developers enjoy working on Openbravo?

PAOLO JUVARA: Openbravo is an incredibly productive development environment, which is perfectly tailored to the development of ERP solutions. With very little effort, developers can modify the functionality that Openbravo ships or develop entirely new features and functions and deploy them in a robust manner to the final users. This is quite unique in the ERP space and very rewarding for developers.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
