Sequoia ERP is intended for e-tailers, retailers, distributors,

system which supports both eCommerce and Point Of Sales.

This ERP suite is based on the Open For Business (OFBiz) project,
which has been in continuous development since 2001 and has been

Sequoia ERP offers many of the features common to Java and J2EE
applications, such as:
o Scaleable to thousands of concurrent users.
o Model View Controller architecture.
o Support for XML and web services.
o Operating system independence.
Sequoia ERP and OFBiz also offer some unique technical strengths,
o Support for all major relational databases, with MySQL,
PostgreSQL, Oracle, and Microsoft SQL Server being some of the
most popular choices.

and integration with external applications.
o Remote synchronization of data.
Release 0.8.1 is a stable, production ready release which can be
downloaded from SourceForge.NET, where the mailing lists, forums,
and issue trackers for community support are also hosted.
Community feedback and bug reports from these SourceForge tools
will be used to enhance future releases.
