GoodGearGuide gets behind the scenes of this successful business, with some of its key executives. They discuss the project, where it’s headed and what makes it so popular with developers, partners and end users.

GGG: What will Openbravo focus on, going into the future?

JOSEP MITJA: Results to date show tremendous growth potential. We aim to develop a sustainable leadership position by focusing on the following areas:

  • Actively building the distribution channel, with partners around the world
  • Fostering localization of Openbravo ERP to facilitate entry in new markets
  • Further developing the ERP solution to enhance functionalities
  • Introducing value-added products and services based on the ERP; focus on scaleable products to facilitate rapid growth
  • Fostering dissemination by reinforcing communication efforts
  • Continuing to build the team with top-tier professionals
  • Opening limited number of offices in strategic locations around the world (as of 2008)

GGG: Why do you think developers enjoy working on Openbravo?

PAOLO JUVARA: Openbravo is an incredibly productive development environment, which is perfectly tailored to the development of ERP solutions. With very little effort, developers can modify the functionality that Openbravo ships or develop entirely new features and functions and deploy them in a robust manner to the final users. This is quite unique in the ERP space and very rewarding for developers.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
