<p>
The Open For Business Project (Apache OFBiz) is an open source
enterprise automation software project. By open source
enterprise automation we mean: Open Source ERP, Open Source
CRM, Open Source E-Business / E-Commerce, Open Source SCM,
Open Source MRP, Open Source CMMS/EAM, and so on. It is one of
the few apps of this type to be developed by a community,
rather than one corporation.
