Why Ostendo?

Ostendo is a “business operating system”

Ostendo introduces the concept of the “business operating system” when combined with MYOB or XERO provides literally everything you need to run a small or midsize business, including accounting, operational and office functions and supporting technology.

Ostendo is highly configurable

Ostendo is highly configurable and combines the flexibility of a spreadsheet with the power of an SQL relational database. You can remove menu items, re-arrange and re-size or delete list columns, add fields to the database and edit report formats.

Ostendo is powered by an SQL relational database

Ostendo is built around Firebird, the open source version of Borland’s InterBase. You get a true, scalable, SQL relational database — built right into the product. With Firebird, Ostendo can support up to 100 or more users.

Ostendo is designed for today’s fast-paced environment

The businesses of today operate in a fast-paced, service-oriented, just-in-time environment that calls for operational software that reflects that reality. Ostendo frees you from excessive steps and procedures that just slow you down.

Ostendo is operationally-focused

Unlike the general nature of many accounting systems, Ostendo is operationally focused on: Distribution, Job Costing, Manufacturing, Service & Maintenance, and Point of Sale.

Ostendo is packed with technology that makes you more productive.

We’ve integrated technology into Ostendo not normally found in accounting packages, including a spreadsheet (with SQL queries), knowledge base, a report writer, and more.

Ostendo linked to Xero accounting provides an ERP system for a fraction of the price of a standard ERP system:

  • Full stock system or labour project management

  • Ostendo ‘syncs’ to Xero every hour

  • Report writer in both applications

  • Xero comes standard with fixed asset manager

  • Integrated payroll
