How to Buy
One of the ways that Consona is changing the economics of business software is by making ERP easier to acquire. We offer the following process and timeline in the spirit of helping you evaluate the potential fit and value to your business from a customized Compiere solution as efficiently as possible.
Assess Compiere Capabilities Against Your Needs (2 weeks - 2 months)
Consona provides a number of resources to assist you with software evaluation and selection. Some prospective customers may choose to complete the analysis on their own. Others will engage an Authorized Compiere Partner to assist with the analysis. Importantly, the choice is yours. The following services are available to assist in evaluating Compiere:
- The Compiere web site provides a range of information, including feature and service descriptions, product demonstrations and forums.
- Compiere Training Services including Web-based Functional and Web-based Technical training and comprehensive Product Documentation are available for purchase.
- Compiere eLearning Services provide interactive, computer-based training modules for Compiere ERP and CRM available on-demand via the Internet.
- Compiere Software is available for download. This is full use software without restrictions on number of users or an expiration date.
- Compiere Authorized Partners provide fee-based services ranging from requirements analysis to software customization and full solution implementation.
With Compiere, you can avoid the seemingly endless and error-prone requirements gathering and vendor request for information (RFI) phase from the past. Instead, you are in control of the process for confirming that Compiere meets your business needs.

With Compiere, there are no "final" decisions. You can change anything about your customized solutions at any time. As a result, there is no need for a seemingly endless analysis and setup phase. Focus your implementation energy on getting into production with the confidence that omissions, extensions or changes can be addressed at any time with minimal consequences.
