Your ERP consultant must have complete knowledge about Odoo ERP:

The ERP consultant you are planning to work with must have end-to-end knowledge about the ERP system. Odoo is a comprehensive business application that comprises of various features, applications, and modules that only experts in the ERP can figure out and can make the best use of them to ensure business efficiency and growth. Hence, it is always suggested to choose the consultant who possesses a detailed knowledge of the following ERP areas: - 

 

The most recent version of the ERP:

The ERP consulting company must be aware of what is the most recent version of Odoo, what are the features, and everything else about it. In fact, knowing about the two editions of the software is important, that is its enterprise edition or the licensed edition and the community or the open-source edition. A good ERP consultant will always guide you about integrating the latest version into your system to set up your business processes. A wrong decision can result in paying unnecessarily extra operational expenses. 

 

A clear understanding of ERP costs:

Cost is one of the most crucial factors while implementing ERP into the business system. Discuss it with the consultant. He or she must have a clear idea about the costs involved including the subscription costs, support, implementation costs, hosting charges, and others. 

 

Knowledge of how to use the ERP modules:

There are over a thousand different modules in the ERP. Some of these Odoo modules come for free, while some are paid. The consultants must be able to help you to choose the modules that best suit your business requirements and operations. 

 

Knowledge of the Odoo third-party integration:

The Odoo ERP software is open-source software and is completely customisable. It allows easy third-party integration as well. With this advantage, it becomes important that the consultant you are planning to work with must know about the third-party integration procedure for payment gateways, shipping, eCommerce, and the other areas. 

 

Knowledge of how to host the ERP software:
