Summary By Peter Sullivan

Topics: Financials (Accounting), Small Business

People: Derek Neighbors

Derek Neighbors (derek) noted that there were three different tracks in the GNUe project - "1. The Tools (this is primary focus currently) - 2. GNUe Small Business (secondary focus) - 3. GNUe Proper (further down road)" . He explained "The Tools are designer, forms, reports, navigator, etc etc etc i.e. the application framework. GNUe Small Business is accounting, inventory, etc that is designed as Keep It Simple Stupid (KISS) that is geared towards immediate solutions for people doing the work - non modular and lumped together quickly. GNUe Proper is the full blown ERP (SAP type equivalent) that will be highly modular and flexible and thoroughly designed" . There were already some proposals for the proper GNUe packages, notably accounting, but these were "more of a general accountants view of how things might look - rather than an implementation path" .
