[France] France’s MyERP has just announced a partnership deal with Google, in which the company’s platform will be one of the first available in Google’s new Apps Marketplace.
MyERP, which was founded in 2000, provides an all-in-one cloud-based business suite for small and medium-sized businesses. Aiming to substitute for a patchwork of business applications – like Salesforce, ACT! and Quickbooks – the platform includes modules for CRM, sales, projects, purchasing, inventory and accounting.
In addition, the freemium business model allows the first 2 users to use the platform entirely for free. As the platform is generally geared towards companies of 5-100 employees, MyERP charges $29 per month per user from 3 users onwards – a rather easy price to swallow in comparison to the alternatives.
The Google Apps Marketplace was officially launched Tuesday night and includes a number of various professional applications. Google will claim 20% of all sales generated through the platform.
MyERP currently has over 8,500 users and the Google deal should put the company at 20,000 by the end of the year. The partnership will also result in the full integration of Google docs, calendar and Gmail into the MyERP platform.
The company has been largely self-funded but also includes €2 million from business angels, Crédit Mutuel, UFG-LFP and the French government.
In addition to the customer base, Founder, François Nadal, plans to grow MyERP’s headcount by the end of the year. While US activities are run out of San Francisco, the company has remote teams in Russia, Ukraine, Belgium and Romania as well.
