This document defines the service level agreement for ERP UI.

Service description

The ERP UI is a framework of Django templates, form fields, classes, CSS, and JavaScript functionality that is housed in two libraries to include in your project: erpui_core_lib and erpui_core_static.

Just as UT Direct provides a consistent look and navigation scheme across all customer-facing pages, the ERP UI was created to provide the same consistency among administrative applications, addressing the frustration many felt toward the lack of integration among web pages, the inability to locate web services, and inconsistent layouts and navigation. The ERP UI adheres to an established set of best practices for administrative application development and interface design, which makes it richly featured and user oriented
