Some shops also manufacture their own tools, so tools themselves must be able to be engineered and manufactured, or purchased the same as any other item in the system.


In this article we will provide an overview describing xTuple ERP's support for "UPS WorldShip" integration. "UPS WorldShip" is a Windows-based, shipping software application for UPS customers who have high-volume shipping needs.

Workflow is a feature in xTuple that allows you to link activities together into dependent sequences (workflows), and to assign activities to specific users. For example, you can create workflow for fulfilling sales orders. When a new sales order comes into the system, it can generate activities for picking and shipping the order, and assign these activities to users to perform. Workflow will be available in all commercial editions of xTuple beginning with version 4.11.0.
