ERP stands for Enterprise Resource Planning. It is a software package that helps companies with:
Finance and Accounting: Managing financial transactions, budgeting, and reporting.
Human Resources: Handling employee data, payroll, benefits, and other HR-related processes.
Supply Chain Management: Monitoring and optimizing the flow of goods and services from suppliers to customers.
Manufacturing: Planning and managing the production process, including inventory and quality control.
Customer Relationship Management (CRM): Managing customer interactions, sales, and marketing.
Project Management: Coordinating and tracking projects and related resources.
Procurement: Managing the purchasing of goods and services.
The best-known ERP platforms are SAP, Oracle, Microsoft Dynamics 365, but for some time now there has been a Belgian ERP package on the market: Odoo.
Odoo is open-source and gained popularity, especially among small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), due to its cost-effectiveness, flexibility, and the ability to adapt to various business processes.
In general, ERP packages are limited to their core functions and can be expanded using apps or plugins. These bring additional functionalities within the familiar environment.
Odoo 17 was launched on November 8, 2023 and this new version has built-in “starter kits” to set up your Odoo application for a specific market.
Some examples are
Bar and Lounge
No need to start from scratch anymore
simply choose your industry from the library, and a selection of related apps will be automatically installed, already preconfigured with business flows and demo data for your industry.
