What is an ERP? an Odoo approach

The ERP system comes from the need to manage all the resources that make up a company in a more monitored and automated way. By having it digitized, tracking is easier, traceability is not lost and, being in the online, allows you to access it from any location.

From this need several management systems were born, among them Odoo.com. Odoo as ERP consists modules to manage all branches of a business: accounting, CRM, sales, purchasing, inventory, manufacturing, projects, marketing, human resources and many more.

What are the benefits of using an integrated ERP system?

When enabled to manage all resources from a single application instead of having the management of the company spread to different applications has numerous advantages.

On the one hand, the cost reduction is clearly significant. Being able to centralize all the management in a single application will save you from having several licenses in different systems, since you will have an all-in-one solution.

And not only the direct cost of the licenses of each system, our time also has a price. By not having to switch from one system to another and transferring information, we will have greater efficiency in terms of internal processes.

Odoo partner we are aligned with the time savings of processes that are not part of the work, that is why one of the objectives of Odoo ERP is the reduction of the number of clicks in your daily operations.

In addition, having all the information centralized will allow us to have greater control over all the data, the position of the company and to be able to get specific reports and statements to help us in the strategy.
