Most mainline ERP software suffers from the common pitfall of trying to please every single user or potential user; thus, creating a huge set of parameters and a complicated customization, installation and deployment process. These accumulate into the requirement to employ a ERP consultant costing more than the software itself. Therefore, irrespective of user requests, features that are too complicated or too difficult to maintain will not be designed into nor implemented with CK-ERP. Specifically, minimal documentation will be made available to users of CK-ERP.
At the same time, to avoid being involved in lawsuits and/or wrangling with legal attorneys/lawyers, CK-ERP tries to be up front about its weaknesses, so please read through carefully in detail the content of the index page of each CK-ERP module before diving into CK-ERP.
