ERPAL as a plattform for software developers and service providers enables you to manage your projects, teams, data and business processes with ONE smart toolbox that includes all the following features:
- CRM (contact and activity management)
- Project management (timetracking, payments, agil and fixed price, expenses, gantt charts, requirement management) with Freelancer support
- Document management and document creation
- Contract management with reccuring invoices
- Employee management (over hours, holidays, costs)
- Invoice creation and PDF export
- ...and many other features
ERPAL's goal is to have ONE TOOL to consolidate all the different business processes, instead of a bunch of tools that aren't necessarily compatible with each other and not capable of transferring data between them. The ERPAL system enables you to manage all your everyday business tasks in one integrated smart solution.
The ERPAL system is under active development. If you like to support or donate to the project, don't hesitate to use the ERPAL contact page. You can support ERPAL by
- Help testing features and usability
- Help developing good architecture, automated tests and modules
- Financial support by sponsoring development
- Kickstart ERPAL with marketing support

ERPAL as a Drupal distribution uses many modules to build the features ERPAL provides. It is very important to ensure the consistency of all these modules. Also we have some patches applied. Not to lose consistency of these modules it is important only to update the complete distribution and not only single modules. For more details please see how to update ERPAL.
