How Odoo works
Odoo works through a common web interface, which contains all the functionalities organized by department. Their workflows are fully integrated and the data seamlessly related, since they share the same database and source code.
Odoo's modular architecture is a great advance over the rest of ERP, since it is possible to buy or develop modules that customize the operation to your employee's ideal way of working.
Odoo Apps and Modules
The objective of Odoo is to include all the business functions that a company may need, to avoid the enormous problem posed by integrations and staff training.
Odoo includes more than 14.000 business apps available to be activated in the system, which makes it the ERP system that best suits your company as soon as it is installed.
With this huge arsenal of applications, it is easy to find an app that solves every need of your company. The modular structure and open nature of its code makes extending the features and optimizing each business process an easy and flexible project.
Like most Open Source solutions, Odoo has the base version developed by the community, with all the functionality and no cost of licenses, and a paid version with some additional modules.
Odoo Community is free: its cost being the hosting, plus the time or money you want to invest in the parameterization, customization and development of the ERP to adjust the operation to your company.
Odoo Community is Open Source
Odoo code is open: this means freedom to modify the system easily and without limitations. Any programmer can develop new installable modules in Odoo, that change the operation and appearance of the system. Perform any additional tasks you can think of, simplify your processes, automate basic and repetitive tasks, or create innovative ways to generate business with your customers and suppliers.

Advantages of using Odoo
Odoo's philosophy is to allow your company to unify business applications into one, as it is known that having dozens of disconnected applications such as CRM, mass mailing, your website or online store, accounting, manufacturing, etc ... kill productivity, control and the organization that you intended to have with them in the first place.
Odoo covers all business needs through 3 main pillars, all of them available from the web and protected with the best security practices:
It serves all internal management purposes from one place, such as Accounting, CRM, Manufacturing, Inventory, Payroll ... and a long list of 14,000 ready-to-use applications.
It serves all purposes in your customer relationships:
Corporate website, Online store, Blog, Customer portal, Contact forms, Document signing...
In charge of carrying out all the rules that govern your business quickly and automatically, such as collecting recurring payments, notifying the right people of important things, robotic processes...
In addition to organizational and productivity advantages, is tremendously powerful when the system that publishes your website or Ecommerce, is the same one that manages and knows the rest of your business processes.
When your customers visit your website, the system (and your sales team) knows who you are, what interests you, how much you buy, when was the last interaction ... Very valuable information to make the visit extremely relevant for the customer, as good commercials do, and offer a customer experience that produces long lasting relationships, loyalty and the best sales and opportunities.
Odoo improves its functionalities continuously in all its versions, so it should be updated. Since version 8, every year in October it launches a new version with more profound changes, which requires data migration if you want to upgrade to it.
Currently the latest version is Odoo 14, released on October 5, 2020.
