Odoo Reviews

Terrible Code

about Odoo · · Helpful Not helpful 1 Helpful

I worked on an Odoo-based project for a few months. This is perhaps the single most confused, horrendous, badly implemented, barely documented code base I've ever seen - and I've seen a LOT. If it meets all of your needs right away, it might be worth considering, but if you have to modify any of the code, RUN. As soon as one thing changes in the code base, things break with no roadmap for fixing them.

Thanks for your review. Could you please be a bit more specific? For example, which version of the Odoo software were you using? Did you have a problem with ALL the code, or was it a problem with a specific PART of the code?

Odoo's SaaS product is not ready for real use.

My company recently went through 1 month of trying to use the hosted Odoo product. We are now on community and extremely happy to have made the move. The problems with our experience:

  • Our assigned Odoo consultant had no discernible technical knowledge. We did warn them before signing that we were going to be doing a lot of customization.
  • Using the tools provided it is very easy to break your ERP. This isn't so bad... But you can't fix it yourself you have to wait about 4 business days for tickets to be addressed.
  • Your consultant will charge you for every email they send you... If these emails said more than "please open a ticket" this might be justified.
  • "Studio", Odoo's customization tool, is in their own words, "Not Done". And more frustrating than helpful.

The worst part about Odoo online is that their customer service just doesn't seem to care.

The community edition is great. I imagine that Enterprise probably is too.

It's awesom, simple and yet powerful. Open source, cheap and coded in PYTHON!!!

Nice but not free

It seems to be a set of apps to be used, but everything is controlled via the the Odoo and to prolong the use they have demands as subscription with all personal/company details etc. The app is used online, meaning all data is located in the cloud and Odoo can disconnect anyone as soon as they decide on policy change.

Nice idea, but unfortunately I'm going to skip it - doesn't seem to be independent and long-lasting...

Hi I'm a common user of Odoo, but I think you misunderstand it. It's expensive if you use the service from official Odoo, but if you can install the system onto your own machine/cloud, it is totally free and fantastic to use. Trust me this is the best ERP I've ever used--I used SAP, ErpNext, SugarCRM, and so on.
