Complete set of business management software

5.0 last year

Comments: Odoo has helped us to automate our business process securely while leveraging more revenue.


The best part about Odoo is its open-source software which you can download and run on your private server, which makes it more secure and reliable. Odoo comes with integrated apps for CRM, eCommerce, accounting, PoS, and project management. The software is easy to implement with detailed documentation and active community support.


The software is written in high-level open-source interpreted Python language. If the software was written in JAVA it would have been even better.

Alternatives Considered: SAP S/4HANA Cloud, Zoho CRM, Dynamics 365, NetSuite and Acumatica Cloud ERP

Reasons for Choosing Odoo: Odoo can be implemented on-premise making it more reliable and secure.

Switched From: NetSuite

Reasons for Switching to Odoo: Odoo is open source and can be hosted on-premise making it best for growing business.

Odoo is a waste of money

2.0 2 months ago

Comments: Horrible


Not user friendly and not happy due to it not saving critical notes and info.


Not user friendly and if you have two tabs open nothing will save. Horrible crm and would not recommend to anyone.

The best Free ERP in the market

4.0 3 months ago

Comments: It was a challenge at first but once you develop properly the tool it really helps your business consolidate, control and support operations.


I liked that it is module based, which means that you can use as many modules as your organization's needs grow. Its free version is robust and allows many useful features. You can easily integrate other services and is good step from Spreadsheets,


Since it is an open source product you do need a specialized team to plan, monitor develop a good installation. Once you try to pass to a paid version, you need to really pay attention to the tricky fees and choose a plan to minimize costs.

Odoo - One of the best ERP

4.0 3 weeks ago New


I found the Odoo software to be very sophisticated and a great solution to many business challenges. The program has a long learning curve, but the benefits are huge once it is understood. I will recommend this ERP solution to small businesses and entrepreneurs.


Odoo is a great ERP software with so many features. But unfortunately I could not find in-depth documentation online and it was frustrating to get started. I was having trouble with importing data, customizing the settings and integrating with other third-party services. I found the answers I needed in the community, but the support could be better.

Odoo accounting is very strong with many features like billing, import bank statement , chart of account, journal etc. Odoo is work like modular approach, that's also very nice to have because you can manage and develop more apps in it easily. Odoo design is user friendly, i love it.


Development tutorial or guideline are not in such details, need improvement. py file give sometime unknown errors. Customization is costly.
