Concepts for Openbravo ERP Redesign

Wednesday, February 11, 2009

We are continuously improving our products and raise the bar with every release. Recently we have started to look at some very fundamental parts of the User Interface of Openbravo ERP and came up with ideas for a future redesign. User feedback told us that there is a need for more powerful and flexible search functionality. We also learned that many user like to edit the grids (tables) directly in the cells and that switching between different records at the same time would be very useful. Furthermore, we are looking at offering more functionality in the context of tasks and we also believe that there is a need for more high level and summarized views on data.

Here we would like to give you a peek preview of the stuff we are working on and give you the opportunity to give your feedback. Our approach is holistic: we believe that all functionality should be working in the context of user journeys rather than just plugging in new features left and right. That's why we also want to propose a complete new Master-Detail concept in which all other functionality is embedded.

Images say more than words so check out the Demo Videos and discuss them on the User Experience Lab forum:

Please also fill out the surveys for Master Detail, Search & Filter, My Workspace and Overall Impression.

I am looking forward to a lively discussion.

Thanks, Rob
