User Reviews of Compiere

Submitted on October 27th, 2009 by Tee Chin Wee from 3A Pharma

Our current ERP system lacked the ability to incorporate the functional needs of our growing distribution business and provide us with critical information. We required a cost effective solution that was fully adaptable to Vietnamese legal regulations and provided integrated, robust ERP functionality.
