More and more start-ups and large organizations are choosing Odoo as their reliable partner in the optimization and streamlining of various business processes, ranging from accounting and HR to supply chain management and logistics. The platform gives you freedom to explore other fields which were locked for your company because of poor optimization, integration and support issues.
At the very beginning of its journey, Odoo concentrated only on the provision of services and did not try to provide all-around support to the customers. But over time the business paradigm changed, and the company started paying attention to other vital domains.
Odoo shifted away from the idea to provide their services directly to the customers and instead started to develop and sustain a broad network of partners. In parallel, this move also resulted in the emergence of freelancers who provided some Odoo features to the companies. This post will try to answer the question of why the company should go for Odoo partners rather than freelancers when implementing an ERP system.
Support in the development of small- and large-scale projects
Deep expertise and high quality
Implementing an ERP by Odoo partner is a systematic process, whereby all deadlines are met. Odoo partner controls all procedures, so you have only to overview finalized documents, approve the results or propose changes and merely wait until the next step of the project is finished. Freelancers usually require more time for their assignments due to restricted resources and very often need more supervision.
Flexible approach to human resources planning
Odoo partners are always flexible in terms of the number of people engaged in the project depending on customer requirements. You will always get the necessary support in the development or implementation process, but the partner will try to maximize the effectiveness and use of human resources to reduce the production cost.
Confidentiality and reputation
All official partners have their details presented on the official Odoo page, so you can always review them with the client references. The category of the partner is not determined by money or time spent in the partnership, but by portfolio and the number of successful cases and implementations.
Another important factor in choosing a partner is the confidentiality of data. A lot of sensitive information will be shared while implementing the ERP, so Odoo partners maintain high standards to protect your data as well as prevent the possibility of breaches or unauthorized use
