StratosERP is a module set that allows you to use Drupal as a major part of your business operations in areas that Quickbooks and MYOB are lacking.

The Stratos ERP module can act as the core of a small business, handling all aspects of it except tax reporting and employee payroll. Its features include franchises, stores, quoting/estimates, invoices, purchase orders, payment receipt, stock tracking over multiple stores with the option of tracking by serial number, job tracking, automated item/pricing import from CSV/XLS files via the Web or email, PDF generation of invoices for email, Ubercart item synchronization, POS instant login via RFID tag, and more.

The FIX message viewer is a set of Ruby scripts that parse FIX (Financial Information eXchange protocol) messages to display them in a more human-readable format. The viewer can only parse FIX messages in a file or from STDIN. It also expects a full FIX message on each line. The FIX message can be prepended with a timestamp, but this will be ignored. The output is colored to make it easier to read, and the MsgType field is highlighted. The log viewer works on the command line only, and requires that Ruby is installed.
