myERP, a cloud-based business management suite for small and medium-sized businesses, just got a major upgrade with a simplified and refined interface.
CEO Francois Nadal took the stage today at CloudBeat 2011 to participate in the conference’s Innovation Showdown, and to show off how the new app works. The application looks almost like a Google search bar, and when you input bits of information, the app recognizes natural language and opens up other boxes to help you get your work done. For example, typing “create new customer” opens a panel where you can add customer information. Or, if you type a customer’s name, that person’s data appears in a new panel. “Show my leads” will pop up your active business leads.
The simple-but-powerful application can help business users with CRM, accounting, invoicing, project tracking, inventory management and document tracking. So far, the application has attracted more than 45,000 registered users from more than 100 countries. Nadal expects the new application to convince many more business customers to sign up.
“With myERP, small businesses can avoid buying multiple expensive and complex applications that don’t talk their language and don’t even communicate with each other,” said Nadal in a statement. “There is no need for special training or support to learn how to use myERP.com. If you can type, you can run your company and get your business done.”
myERP is free for two users, and each additional user costs $29 per user per month. Nadal stands behind the product enough that he’s comfortable letting two users tap into the service for free because he’s convinced they will like it enough to get more people involved. You can sign up for the app from the Google Apps Marketplace or direct from myERP.com.
San Francisco-based myERP currently has 15 employees and has raised $4 million in capital from Altos Ventures, Siparex and a few other angel investors.
