The company is a member of the Open Solutions Alliance, a non-profit organization working for open-source standardization. Openbravo is three-time winner of Infoworld’s Bossie award for best open source software application for Openbravo ERP, last awarded in August 2011.

Openbravo ERP is a web-based ERP business solution for small and medium sized companies that is released under the Openbravo Public License, based on the Mozilla Public License. The model for the program was originally based on the Compiere ERP program that is also open source, released under the GNU General Public License version 2. The program is among the top ten most active projects of Sourceforge as of January 2008.

Using Openbravo ERP, organizations can automate and register most common business processes. The following processes are supported: Sales, Procurement, Manufacturing, Projects, Finance, MRP and more. Numerous commercial functional extensions are available on the Openbravo Exchange which can be procured by users of the Professional Subscription version of Openbravo ERP. This paid-for version offers additional functionality compared to the free Community Edition (such as: integrated administration tools, non-technical tool for updates and upgrades, access to Openbravo Exchange and a Service Level Agreement). Characteristic of the Openbravo ERP application is the green web interface through which users maintain company data in a web-browser on their PC or PDA. Openbravo can also create and export reports and data to several formats, such as PDF and Microsoft Excel.

Openbravo POS is a web-based Point-of-Sale (POS) application for retail and hospitality businesses. The application came into existence called TinaPOS. For legal reasons the application was renamed to LibrePOS. In 2007 LibrePOS was acquired by Openbravo and it is known by its current name. The program is completely integrated into Openbravo’s ERP application. Through this integration it is possible to update stock levels, financial journals and customer data directly in the central database when a POS sales is executed in the stores. Openbravo POS can be applied using PDAs for order intake.
