Odoo may be new technology or software for you and here’s when you will need to rely on a consultant to effectively manage your business and its processes.


The consultant must have an accurate interest and knowledge about your business type:

The first and the foremost quality you must look for in an ERP consultant is that the consultant has a genuine interest in your business and has in-depth knowledge about your business type. Also, it is better to choose a  consultant who has previously worked and handled ERP projects like yours.


The consultant should be an expert in using the ERP:

Choosing the right consultant is as important as choosing the ideal ERP for your business. An ERP consultant with expertise and experience in using the ERP can be a valuable asset to your business. Adequate knowledge about ERP software can also help the professional effectively implement and integrate the software into your business system.


Must be able to provide proper ERP training to the users:

In most ERP projects, one of the major problems that often arises is that the users are not able to handle and manage the processes with the ERP and fail to use the ERP effectively for the business system. To avoid such problems, it is essential to provide proper training to the users from before only. And it is one of the major responsibilities and qualities of the ERP consultant. The consultant should be able to train the users to let them efficiently use the software later on with the business grows and changes.


With these skills and qualities, the consultant can efficiently manage your entire business and its workflow. A streamlined workflow and well-managed business processes are the signs of successful ERP implementation and the consultant must help with that as well. ERP consultants play an integral part in ERP functioning, and implementation and here are the qualities that the consultants need to offer the same.
