LaVonne most recently established the Open Technology Business Center in Beaverton, Ore., not far from Compiere's Portland headquarters. Compiere has only a handful of employees, but relies on numerous business partners that sell the software and tailor it for particular customers' needs. Compiere aids in support and shares revenue with those partners, Janke said in an interview at the Open Source Business Conference earlier this month.
