What is Odoo ERP?
Odoo ERP is primarily a business management software that helps companies run efficiently. You can describe it as a suite of business apps that assist in catering to the core needs of firms or industries. It is highly integrable and carries multiple options. These options in the form of apps allow controlling and maintaining multiple business activities.
Why Choose Odoo?
You may ask why Odoo should be chosen to fulfill all your business requirements? The answer is pretty simple. You may have some software on which you deal with your business. It may include some database software, some project management software and etc. It basically creates two-way communication. Moreover, the disjointed networks of these applications make things uneasy to handle.
Apart from that, multiple factors like training costs, and subscription fees of such apps make things more complicated. Not only this, but on other applications, data collection from multiple apps makes it a time-consuming process. Odoo on the other hand provides centralized data and data accessibility becomes easier.
There is more to the explanation part. Odoo not only serves all business needs but the R&D team is involved in the development of apps when there is any requirement from the customer that is supported by the market demand.
In addition to this, It is to mention that at the moment, there are more than 20,000 apps linked with Odoo in the AppStore. These apps are third-party applications that are built by developers. You are allowed to integrate your system with these applications.
Demonstration of the Software’s Working
The primary aim of this part of the discussion was to explain to the audience how easy it is to work with Odoo.
The speakers guided the development of a website through Odoo software. As a user, you do not need to have a technical background to create a website. You can generate a highly customizable website within a few steps. Also, you can get automated templates through it. Furthermore, pictures and animations are also added by the system related to your needs.
After the website part, the discussion took a turn towards creating opportunities and leads. Through ‘contact us’ or different social media channels, the system receives leads and the team gets into conversations with the customers, and then automated quotations are sent to the clients. The CRM software also mentions the medium on the system by which the customer approach. As a result, you can find out from where do you get the most attention. Because of this, you can work further on the engagement part.
After this, the talk shifted toward the Helpdesk app. You can get all your queries on a single platform. It is only possible if you use Odoo as business software. The integration of the website with the Helpdesk directly informs the system about the queries from the clients. After which, you can provide solutions to the customers.
