1.2 Supported functionality

As most ERP systems LedgerSMB’s functionalities are grouped into modules. Many modules are integrated parts of the base application. New features can be implemented in separate modules at first to allow evaluation of the feature set. When a it has become sufficiently stable, the new module may be integrated in the base application. As of that time, the existing features will be frozen, meaning that the utmost will be done to prevent it from being changed.

These separate modules - which are called add-ons - have to be installed separately. After installation they become seamless parts of LedgerSMB with no visible difference from the base application. An additional benefit of having add-ons is that they can follow different release schedules and separate maturity levels than the main application.

LedgerSMB development features the following integrated modules:

  • General ledger

  • Payment and Accounts payable

  • Invoicing and Accounts receivable

  • Fixed asset accounting

  • Time registration and invoicing
