Apache OFBiz

Apache OFBiz is a suite of flexible business applications that can be used across any industry to connect, enhance and create efficiency. A typical architecture allows developers to extend or enhance it to create custom features easily.

Apache OFBiz provides a complete set of compelling and advantageous business features that include:

  • Procure to Pay

  • Supply Chain Fulfillment
  • Contracts, Payments & Billing

All of these are delivered in a highly flexible architecture, allowing developers to quickly and easily extend and enhance the framework with custom features that can be adapted to meet the specific needs of any company.

Apache OFBiz has been an Apache top-level project for over ten years; OFBiz has shown its stability and maturity as an enterprise-wide ERP solution flexible enough to change with any business. A powerful and flexible suite of business applications that are free to use, free to modify and, it comes with the support and knowledge of the Apache Community.

The Apache OFBiz Community

Developers thrive in a community where ideas, images, performances, and emotions are shared and made better by the collaborative process. This is the Apache OFBiz community. This community comes together voluntarily and offers advice, fixes, and changes to open-source code to work across various platforms.

Over 65% of websites worldwide are powered by the Apache Software Foundation. This Apache community continually gives their time and effort to keep it running smoothly, adding fixes to make it better and helping others use the source code to spin-off and develop their own companies, services, and websites. The businesses that are powered by Apache OFBiz make life better, easier, and profitable for so many people.

From the Apache community comes Apache OFBiz. The community has over two decades of experience working with customers, helping them understand how Apache OFBiz can make their business grow and prosper.

Apache OFBiz is the open-source suite of applications that will help you organize, specify and ultimately take your business to the next level, all backed by decades of experience and community involvement.

OFBiz Open Source

We support and elevate the OFBiz open source community with more than 75,000 hours contributed to development communities, and the Apache software foundation. Apache OFBiz allows for a single-source system to function across a wide variety of business divisions within an organization making for a true omnichannel experience.

Experience, expertise, and commitment are the foundation of the HotWax Systems’ team. Through more than 20 years of dynamic leadership, we excel in the areas of business application development, the elevation of software development excellence, and influencing how businesses innovate and prepare to be on the cutting edge of the next big thing. We are leaders in change and adaptation.

OFBiz Open Source Integrated Business Applications

The applications within OFBiz are designed to work together on top of a shared data model. This allows for a single-source system to function across a wide variety of business divisions within an organization. For example, an organization can run B2C e-commerce, B2B digital commerce, order management, warehouse, fulfillment, and procurement – all on the same integrated OFBiz system.

OFBiz is both front-end and database agnostic. That means that custom front-end development can be accomplished in any technology (e.g. Bootstrap, Angular, JQuery, iOS, Android, etc.). A wide variety of databases are also supported (MySQL, Oracle, PostgreSQL, Cassandra, Spark, and others). OFBiz runs in Apache Tomcat, so it does not require a Java EE server such as JBoss. Developers can run OFBiz on their laptops, and can come up-to-speed quickly, working with OFBiz experts on a co-development project.
