Hello!

We are happy to announce our 2016 community release.  Since 2012 when we launched eramba our promise has been to provide a yearly general update regardless we get software contributed into the project or not.

We have improved in the following:

  • Documentation: we included videos, re-wrote and expand the documentation to make it easier to use.
  • Virtual Machine: we have included the option to use a VM to use eramba (specially for those Windows and not tech-savvy users)
  • We have finally started offering enterprise support at incredible fees for those of you that need help and have patches not once a year but every second week.
  • eramba as a result of this services has confirmed budget until the end of 2017 and one full time developer working on eramba
  • We have closed the gap in between enterprise and community release considerably and at the same time we are expanding our enterprise release with many exiting features this year (renewed worfklows, the ability to customise every form in the system, new filters, built in APIs, dashboards, Etc)
