Initially, before the ERP software came into existence, companies and organisations used to execute their operations on several dedicated software’s, especially firstly for finance and then to manage other task. Using different software for each department was the great investment but at the same time there was no clarity and visibility in the business.Then the role of ERP came into exists, the major problem which was resolved was to use the single platform to cater all the Business requirements in one platform.
Now , most of the organisations are experiencing the power of Open Source ERP “Odoo” as a necessity for their growing Business. The Odoo Open Source Enterprise Resources Planning (ERP) software is very flexible for the large as well as small business. The features and the modules of the Odoo directly lead to increase the profit and efficiency of the organisation.

ERP solutions are always more feasible than the proprietary solutions, because of several reasons. First of all, there is lower or no license cost of the software. Next, the maintenance cost and the external consultants and programmer fees are lower than the proprietary solutions. Furthermore most open source ERP solutions can use open source databases and operating systems, giving you an additional license-free options.
IT professionals from large companies agree that open source ERP Solutions provide higher quality, because many independent, and passionate developers have looked at the solutions, criticized the code, and contributed enhancements. Competition between developers is very common in open source software communities and that is the main drive that improves quality and encourages innovation. What most of the commercial ERP providers usually do is “reinventing the wheel”.
Open source ERP solutions are preferred by the big and small companies because they are easier to upgrade when customizations are properly implemented. Upgrades can be done more often without disruption of the production system. In this way companies using open source ERP solutions are always one step ahead of their competitors, and are harvesting the power of the latest technologies and innovations.
In the past, the open source ERP Solutions were discarded as being less secure, but today many of them are being considered as technically superior to their proprietary counterparts.
The main reason for an open source ERP Solution to be more secure is the number of contributors. If you compare a team of 50 talented programmers with a team of a 1000 talented programmers, then whom do you think will be able to produce a better quality product? Other reason for being secure is the code being open source. Anybody can identify a bug or loophole and can quickly fix it. This results in a better secured software.
Business agility is the ability to react to marketplace demands quickly. Therefore, big companies benefit from open source ERP Solutions because they let them react quickly. The software code is not tied to vendors’ timelines for commercial application upgrades, so the companies can customize and modify the ERP Solution to their specific business needs. This saves time as well as cost
It reduce dependence on a single or multiple vendors, and in this way they may reduce business risk. Open source ERP Solution providers like O2b Technologies allow you to integrate apps and modules from different vendors in a way that will increase the overall productivity of your daily operations.
