GENEVA, April 13, 2011 - <<MAPS ARE COOL>>, said Luc Maurer, Camptocamp's founder and
director, when presenting the integration of maps in OpenERP.

As Confucius once said: <<A picture is worth a thousand
words>>. This is exactly what Camptocamp achieved by adding the geographical
dimension as a new analytical tool within an ERP.

Camptocamp's Business Solutions and Geospatial Solutions teams
have merged their long-term technical competencies and experiences to create
a unique and exclusive geolocation component for OpenERP. These developments
allow, among other things, to display customers within a precise location, to
analyze sales figures for a selected country, to visualize different logistic
flows, and to provide maps for any other data available in OpenERP.

Users can place simple marks, graphs, and colors per
geographical area, as well as calculate distances and surfaces. This map view
opens unlimited Geo-BI (Geographic Business Intelligence) possibilities to
companies using OpenERP.

Camptocamp pledges that this is only the beginning. By adding
this new dimension to the core of OpenERP, the user will carry out effortless
following business applications:

- Geographical queries and filters (ex: list of the last sales
made within 10km of point of sales);

- Geo-marketing (ex: customer areas analysis, direct

- Logistics optimization (ex: stock location);

- Improvement of distribution flows (ex: find shorter way to
deliver customers);

- Fleet management (vehicles, boats, etc..);

- Dashboards;

- Crises management.

As of today, no other ERP provides this functionality as an
integrated view solution. With this breakthrough, Camptocamp demonstrates the
benefits of Open Source communitarian development.
