Advantages of Odoo ERP
Multiple Modules Integration
As discussed above, Odoo consists of more than 35 modules that are the essential components of a business. Below mentioned is the list of Odoo modules that helps the company in multiple ways. Be it Accounting, Human Resources, Inventory, Manufacturing, and Logistics, Odoo ERP integrates all the modules together so that users can easily keep track of products from its manufacturing, till its delivery.
The only difference between good and bad customer support is its approachability. Odoo offers customer service through plenty of sources that are easy and approachable. Usually, there are limited resources available for software, but when it comes to Odoo, there are multiple resources available online along with discussion threads, which is a good starting point for any beginner.
If you have paid for Odoo, you have easy access to the bug fixing and support on weekdays through email.

Ksolves is one of the best Odoo app & theme developers that provide the finest services to its clients.
Odoo provides end to end user customization without major rewriting of codes or changes in its basic structure. In other ERPs, there is hardly any scope for customization from the user’s end. But with the help of Odoo’s advanced Apps and Themes, users can easily make changes in its architecture without any extra efforts.
Comprehensive in Nature
Odoo Consists of a Wide Range of Functionality that helps the business in satisfying business modules. Odoo comes up in two parts that are Enterprise and Community Edition, out of which Enterprise is paid, and the community comes without any cost. If you plan to buy Odoo, you can first go ahead with Community Version and then migrate to Enterprise paid version.
Introduced as a tiny ERP in 2005, Odoo is considered an ERP for SMEs and startups. If you have been looking for the ERP prices, you might have noticed that most ERPs are expensive, with additional pricing features for add on facilities. As Odoo is an open-source ERP, you can quickly implement it in your environment. The best thing about Odoo is that it doesn’t come with a fixed pricing tag; you can avail it via pay per use scheme. If you want Odoo for e-commerce, you need to buy only e-commerce modules.
If you don’t want to buy the complete package, you can go with the community edition that is free to use. Also, you can buy the success pack, which is favorable for small-scale organizations with a count of an average of 50 employees.
Disadvantages of Odoo ERP
One of the major disadvantages of Odoo is its complicated set-up structure. You might find it challenging to implement the first time in your organization. We have noticed that some companies found it difficult to implement in their environment due to the slow installation structure.
With several support channels, Odoo has a limitation that it cannot provide seamless customer support to all the clients due to limited resources. Some of the clients aren’t satisfied because their problems were not resolved in the first incident. Also, the pricing of Odoo training is a little bit higher for a Small scale organization.
To operate the community version of Odoo, some clients briefed us that they required a high level of IT support that wasn’t possible because they were in the initial phase of the business. If you are looking for affordable Odoo support services, you can contact the Ksolves team at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we promise you to provide customized solutions according to your requirements.
The most common complaint of the Odoo users is complicated pricing. Odoo’s pricing is good until the user uses a single module; as soon as you switch to one extra app, $30/month per user will be billed along with the application’s cost. This creates confusion in the billing, and the cost of applications increases subsequently. To mitigate this, Odoo has a pricing plan explained on the pricing page to select the applications and check the billing plan.
Also, you can try the 15 days free trial in which you can check the applications for free.
Talking of the final verdict, Odoo is an emerging ERP that integrates multiple modules to better the businesses. It’s been only 15 years, and Odoo is standing out tall for SMEs’ betterment, and it is doing it without any miss. However, some disadvantages can be overcome with the best Odoo service providers’ services helping every scale business according to their requirements.

One thought on “Advantages and Disadvantages of Odoo ERP”
I will not rate odoo as best, becasue it dont have the simple and most powerful tool we expect. That is the global search. For that we have to pay again for third party app or we have to hire customizing staff. Not good
