Modules and Modules
As of Jan 2020, Odoo has a total of 45 tools spread across 8 modules, the sheer number of modules means that companies can leverage the exact tools and modules to create business solutions that cater to all their demands and expectations. As an Odoo development company in India, we recommend many clients to choose Odoo instead of any other ERP or CRM solutions, mainly due to the customizability and the large tool inventory.
There are many ERP solutions that can be said as having better performance, better tools, lower pricing, and more. But the one defining feature of Odoo ERP has been its easy-to-use interface, which in turn created a small learning curve. An intuitive front end meant that anyone and everyone could easily use the Odoo ERP. From the beginning, no ERP solutions placed importance on user-friendliness and intuitive front end as much as Odoo. As an Odoo consulting company, many a time we recommended Odoo ERP for their user-friendliness.
This is a bit of an advantage and disadvantage depending on how you look at it. Odoo upgrades and updates many of its services. And there entirely new tools, new third-party integrations, and more. So the maintenance can seem like a tedious task, new additions to the ERP mean that employees need new training, new internal training materials, and more. And when it comes to adding new features to Odoo, the clients will need an expert team of Odoo developers. As Odoo development company, we have helped many clients to maintain their ERP.
Another point of Odoo that has multiple facets to it, its the pricing of the solution, Odoo ERP can be incredibly customizable ERP, but the pricing is complicated, for example, the price difference between an inhouse tool and a third party tool will be 35x more than the price of the in-house tool. The pricing plans get even more complicated when a new member is added, its been said that it might cost more than a premium account to add a new member with some extra tools. As an Odoo consulting company in India, we have helped many clients to get the best of Odoo without breaking the bank.
