Overall Satisfaction with Odoo

Odoo is the ERP of the company. It helps with sales, manufacturing, purchases, invoicing and accounting. It is our MRP and accounting software.
  • Possibility to customize the fields and some workflows is rather simple and a lot of tutorials are available on the internet.
  • The community version is free as are most modules and some paying modules developped for specific purposes are available in the marketplace.
  • It is easy to configure products with accounting, everything is smooth.
  • Community version is sometimes hard to maintain, needs some on-premise knowledge (IT) or having business with an Odoo partner that is sometimes expensive and unreliable.
  • Enterprise version is as expensive as other ERP in the market.
  • Reporting is horrible, not a lot of possibility to integrate seamlessly with a third party BI platform.
  • The community version removes heavy implementation cost
  • Integration of all activities on a single platform (e.g. sales dept speaks the same language as the shipping or support department).
I would go community version for a small startup, Odoo can be customized quickly and refined as a company matures. It's less suited for a big company already using an ERP with lots of workflows and integration.
