The art of being innovative and flexible
Efficiency and Productivity
In most companies there are a core set of business processes used to run the company across a variety of departments.
These processes are a combination of manual and disparate systems to achieve the end to end goal.
- Accounting runs a separate package for invoicing
- Sales use a different CRM
- HR and Payroll are typically done separately
- Warehouse and Inventory multiple checkpoints for delivery and receipts
- IT Helpdesk and Maintenance usually separate systems
Companies that wish to grow efficiently have to constantly review their processes and eradicate in-efficiencies for better customer service delivery.
The adoption of an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system is usually the main way to achieve improvements across the whole business and in the past this has only been for companies that could afford to pay the high fees for traditional ERP vendors like Oracle, SAP, Microsoft Dynamics, SAGE X3.
The licensing and implementation fees of course vary by company size but companies from 10 years old with 30 - 40 employees would typically expect to pay at least $50-60,000 to implement an ERP system with mature companies with a large amount of users expecting to pay anything from hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars.
Odoo changes this with a user friendly, modern, mobile and flexible platform for less than 1/3 the price of the traditional systems that enables businesses to adopt, adapt and innovate with improvements during their implementation.
The best implementations are done within a reduced timeframe and still deliver a system that empowers the employees to adopt improved working methods and enhance aspects of the companies culture to be more nimble and efficient.
Think of it as a "real time business process morph", review, tune, test, adopt.
Not all companies have the ability to take on and successfully implement a transformation program of this scale but with the right implementation partner they can be shown and taught to move in that direction over the course of an implementation.
This ability is only possible with the kind of user friendliness, flexibility, modern and class leasing Total cost of ownership (TCO) of Odoo Business Applications.
