BlueSeer is a completely free ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) package for small to medium size businesses. There are no keys, trial periods, or registration...its free. BlueSeer aims to be the first universally free ERP with the singular goal to provide businesses with a freeware alternative to higher cost commercial ERPs. BlueSeer ERP was developed for manufacturing companies who wish to customize and maintain their own software without the need for high cost proprietary support or the hurdles of proprietary source code. BlueSeer's design, toolset, and open source availability favor the large community of java and database developers to support customization and maintenance, and therefore is a serious contender for companies that are looking for better less costly software solutions.
The best way to learn the benefits of BlueSeer is to dive right in with the Windows .exe (or linux .deb) installer version. You can download here. The install only takes a few minutes, and you will have a fully functional instance installed on your PC to explore it's features. This install comes with the SQLite backend database which is a single-user instance, but the functionality is the same as the multi-user (MySQL) install without all the nuances of pre-installing a MySQL database instance. Both SQLite and MySQL versions of BlueSeer are free downloads, and only differ in the back-end database type. To get you started, there is a quick-install guide within the reference PDF in the Documentation section.
If you're interested in the development of BlueSeer, or you wish to customize the application, the source code is freely available on github. A 'compile guide' is also provided here to help get you started.
