In the first part on this topic, we discussed the importance of choosing the right ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) solution for your business. We mentioned how Odoo and Acumatica Cloud ERP systems differ in platform, pricing, and industry relevance. In Part Two, we’ll discuss how the two solutions meet key ERP needs for scalability, customization, and support.
Odoo vs Acumatica for key ERP requirements
The decision to purchase or replace an ERP solution generally comes from the realization that your business processes are not being executed as efficiently and accurately as you would like. Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) is no longer a great thing to buy a business but it has become a necessity as organizations expand and technology advances. When your company is finally tired of wasting time on frustrating solutions, it’s time for a new ERP.
Two of the basic functional requirements for ERP are scalability and customization. Equally important to the smooth running of your business is the support you can expect from your solution and your ERP partner.
Scalability and reporting
As your business grows, you need an ERP solution that can handle the growth and provide the critical insight needed to make better, faster decisions.
- udo Clients are mostly small businesses with less than 50 employees. More transactions (invoices, purchase orders, special operations) may tax the Odoo system – resulting in slow performance, corrupt transactions and conflict between concurrent users. Additionally, Odoo’s per-user pricing may discourage growth by penalizing companies when hiring additional employees. Odoo also limits emails to 100 per day. These critical limitations negatively affect Odoo’s scalability.
Reporting on Odoo is limited. Odoo provides less than 50 reports and dashboards, which are not customizable. Creating custom reports requires the Customizer (Studio), which incurs additional monthly fees and often requires expensive and skilled developer assistance.
- currently In fact it encourages business growth. Its resource-based pricing supports an unlimited number of users and allows them to access anytime/anywhere. In addition, it is built on the latest model
Accomatica Cloud xRPThe platform, which supports rapid growth and dynamic operations and can handle high volume transactions smoothly and efficiently.
The Acomatica report is strong and it is one of the reasons why Acomatica is
Your ERP solution should do away with workarounds by providing flexible and powerful customization capabilities.
- udo It provides ready-made customizations and connects to many third-party add-on solutions. However, in the absence of proper governance and oversight, Odoo integrations do not always work. In addition, most third-party add-ons from Odoo are built for on-premises solutions and do not work with cloud ERP.
The Enterprise edition of Odoo has a customization tool for an additional monthly fee. But the tool is difficult to use, and the user has described Odoo’s documentation as “limited and unhelpful”. They often had to hire developers to perform their customizations, and many times the customizations are not supported when updating Odoo.
Odoo’s customization costs are steep and incur a basic development fee as well as a recurring monthly fee based on development hours. Customers can pay a development fee in addition to the monthly fee in perpetuity for a 20-hour customization project that may turn out to be obsolete with subsequent updates.
- currently A wide range of ready-made customization add-ons are available in
Market Accomatica. Strong management and oversight ensure that add-ons will survive solution updates. Additionally, the zero-token/low-code customization capabilities of the Acumatica Cloud xRP platform mean it’s quick and easy for non-technical users to customize their Acumatica setup.
If Acumatica users want help with customizations, they have free access to comprehensive, readable, and in-depth help documentation.
Today, businesses need to have access to support at all times.
- Odoo technicians in the first place Focus on implementation and development rather than continuous improvement of the system and support. Odoo Gold Tier Partners (the highest level) are only required to have three authorized employees in at least one of the last three versions of Odoo.
Business customer support is available from Odoo, but it is not without an additional cost. With no weekend support and few guaranteed SLAs, it can be difficult to resolve critical ERP issues quickly.
- currently Consultants are businessmen as well as technical experts. With Acomatica, support begins during the selection and implementation process and continues throughout the life of the partnership. In addition, Acumatica partners must meet stringent certification requirements.
