Grow your business with the open-source, elegant, easy-to-use Odoo, an all-in-one suite of business apps built to manage company resources in a single database.
Every enterprise, large or small, is faced with issues arising from critical business components as it grows. If a company fails to handle the critical factors to growth, a whole lot of mess emerges. The business becomes fragmented and we know that fragmentation is not good as it leads to inefficiency that translates to financial losses. To better manage the business, some companies employ a dedicated software and database in each of their units: accounting, finance, sales, logistics, human resource, and customer relations. However, what they thought would make them more efficient actually failed in the long term. The solution: Odoo, a free Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software package.

Savings and profits
Some companies use different proprietary software packages and online Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) providers. Unfortunately, while different third-party providers may prove to be helpful, it becomes painful to manage and pay for multiple services from multiple providers. There’s nothing more cost-effective and streamlined solution than an all-in-one ERP system, which is Odoo
Open source means free of charge, and Odoo as free software means lower total cost of ownership (TCO). You can use it no matter how, for whatever, and as many users as you want that you will forget about the notion that only paid solutions can bring huge tangible and intangible benefits. There’s no need to pay for a monthly or yearly license or subscription to use the software. More importantly, the benefits lie not just on savings on the use of a free software but the savings on the company’s operating costs, inventory costs, maintenance costs, and administrative costs that come with implementing Odoo.
Security is the reason why the government is pushing for the use of open source. When a software is open source, everyone can look at the source codes and examine them for security holes. With more than a thousand developers, Odoo is always being tested for security to ensure that data don’t get lost, leaked, or stolen. Development is always continuous wherein problems are immediately noticed and resolved.
All of these make Odoo the right and perfect tool for companies seeking growth and development possibilities.
