I came a long way, since they were known as openERP. I did test it during then, yeah it was quite ...full of problems. However, I must say that they have improved tremendously these few years. Why I like about open source is that given the time, I can figure out things myself. I now have two installations of Odoo handling day to day business for about 3 years now. Yes, there are still some problems here and there but I can live with that. Don't try to set up and support it for use if you are just an ordinary technical person, it takes more than a technical support person to do the job. In any case, I am happy that they finally come to Asia, I am looking forward to have an opportunity to work with them. See More
user-friendly and easy to use.
Using odoo is a little bit like entering a company that claims to be transparent, because their rece...ption sits in a glass house everybody already can see from the street. I evaluated it several times over the years for several use cases and found out it does a little bit of everything but nothing as good as promoting themselves. Just imagine a programmable remote control: tempting idea to have one for all at first, but when starting to program it, you realize, that most people managed well having several ones side by side. Maybe it is part of the commercial "open source" concept, that one has to spend a great time to understand the mechanics and get finally, that very basic and common features require developments, that not necessarily are cheaper because of using "open source". If you are a big company planning budget for development anyhow, it is not a big deal. If you are a small company thinking to use it out of the box or get tempted by the "open source" label, better go into detail and evaluate well, how much and what kind of person you will need to customize it. Stop playing powerpoint, but do some use cases, because comercial open source in general means nothing but partly wired forms! Just some simple examples: You most probably knew odoo as option for something related to ERP or CRM, you like the interface, install it, play a little around and realize, it is not even capable to distinguish whether you have products in stock or not (sure, it is just a + or - in some table). Hence it seems every child gets that it might be a good idea to check, if there is something to sell or not, chances are high that on management level nobody wants to play through the obvious and later still will require an expert to implement that "feature" for you. If you run a restaurant and got to the point of thinking about erp I bet you are not a one man show and most likely want to use several devices for taking orders. When you get to the point of playing around with different devices you will realize that adding a module for syncing your information, will cost you more, than most restaurant pos systems, etc. etc. As very typical for Software labeled "comercial open source" you will have a hard time to know, what features are part of enterprise and what are within community, also where you are dependent on paid features. And you will definitely not have a community keeping pace with annual new releases that are mainly within the enterprise stream and not always compatible due to refactoring involved. Anyhow it seems still ahead of erpnext, and enterprise model might help to keep it like that. In the end, it is not that different that it always pretends to be from SAP or the other big ones and thats because it has the same needs to pay a bunch of developers and make profit. See More
