Last few months have been a great journey for all of us at Flectra. We have seen immense progress in our mission to bring a system that is genuinely “For All”.
During the time there has been a number of generous people who have tried to help us to grow with their immense contribution, be it technically or functionally or financially. On a number of occasions, people have shown their interest in joining hands with Flectra.
We have been asked and offered to create sustainable solutions and missing parts that can be the part of a true ERP solution. To support our efforts, we have thought of various ways so that everyone can contribute, including doing crowdfunding campaigns to create multiple apps. Hence the current community size is limited; we believe it will not be a right choice to go for crowdfunding campaign.
To overcome this, we have decided to take another route, which is called “Delayed Release.”
In this method, we would be introducing a couple of new modules (e.g. Marketing automation, drill down reporting, etc.) which can be purchased from store.flectrahq.com
These purchases are purely for supporting our development efforts and once efforts are compensated, same will be released under open source LGPL-3 license and package it as a part of core Flectra, leading a win-win situation for all, developers, contributors and open source community.
I am inviting the community for open discussion to know their views.
