Edouard beta 3 ships
The first public beta version of Edouard has been released by Flying Pig. Edouard beta 3 attempts to minimize the need for human intervention in corporate systems, by managing and coordinating a company's resources using shared servers. Areas covered by Edouard include sales, purchases, production, stocks, contacts, statistics and accountancy.
Three configuration options are available, two of which feature dedicated servers hosted either by Flying Pig or users. The last option features a mutualized server hosted by Flying Pig, enabling global account monitoring. Customers interested in a dedicated server version of Edouard require a G5 Mac and Mac OS X 10.5.4.
The completed version of Edouard, v1.0, has yet to be given pricing or a release date.
