They say that one of the secrets to the success of any business lies in the way it is managed. In the hands of someone who does not have the company "at their fingertips" even the largest franchises in the market can wither away. In this "middle field" enter ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) software to help organize and plan companies and businesses, so succeeding or not is a matter of having a good product and good marketing.
Something that has always been asked a lot here on the blog was for me to write about some cool software for this business management purpose and also run on Linux. Well, I just found an incredibly easy-to-use and feature-rich Sige Lite.
Because it is multiplatform you can consider a mixed environment of companies with different systems and still be able to use the tool without any problems.
Accessing the official website You can download the application to your computer, in case of Linux it is distributed in AppImage, an increasingly popular, portable format that works in any distribution.
To run the application on AppImage just make sure that it has execute permissions on the file properties and execute by double clicking.
Once installed you will be able to login with your account or create an account to use the tool for free.
The information placed at the time of account creation will be used as the basis of information in the ERP, but as it is a software capable of issuing invoices, it is interesting to spend some time in the program settings to fill it completely.
When you log in, the first screen you will see is a very intuitive Dashboard, it will give you access to the most important information of your company:
You can easily register people and products, you have a calendar that can contain information about launches that need to be made, billing and spending, all in a very visual and easy to understand way.
Here are some sample images with some dummy data so you can better see how the application works.
In addition to being clear about receivables and payables, you can also register various bank accounts to allocate amounts.
There is also the invoice issuing system in a simple, complete, free and that works even without internet access, that is, enough to put the blame "on the system" for not being able to finalize the sale.
You also have a complete POS module for customer sales.
And as you can see, you can manage customers by adding pertinent billing information, watching sales, and more.
