I have a friend who has been experimenting with Odoo over the past few weeks and he has been very impressed by its versatility.
In the enterprise resource planning software field, Odoo is an alternative to SAP ERP, Oracle E-Business Suite, Microsoft Dynamics, NetSuite, and others.
Odoo is an open-source suite of integrated business applications actively programmed, supported, and organized by Odoo SA.
Odoo is similar to many open-source projects where customized programming, support, and other services are provided by an active global community and partners network.
The community is comprised of more than 1,500 active members and has contributed more than 4,500 modules to the ongoing enrichment of Odoo.
The network of certified partners, established in more than 120 countries, deploys the solution locally. The software, with more than 1,500 downloads a day, is one of the most frequently installed business suites worldwide.
Odoo is an open-source alternative to many software packages. It can be used by any retailer with its POS (Point Of Sales), and in any website with its CMS (website builder) synchronized with the e-Commerce app.
Odoo positions itself high as being user friendly and having plenty of business scope but not with the high ticket price of a NetSuite , Ms Dynamics , Oracle or SAP.
