Odoo is used by 3.7 million users worldwide ranging from very small companies to large multinationals.
Here's a case study of clients, who have chosen Matt O'Bell Ltd (Odoo leading Business Partner) to implement Odoo for their organisation.
Name of Client: Fode (Field Offshore Design & Engineering)
No of Employees: Over 70
Date of Project: 2013
Module Covered: Accounting
FODE (Field Offshore Design & Engineering) Ltd is an engineering design services company but also provides marine transportation services to some IOCs in Nigeria. When a new CFO took over sometime in 2012, he saw the need for an ERP system and was about to close the deal with Sage when we got the opportunity to demonstrate the features of OpenERP (now Odoo). Immediately, OpenERP was accepted because of its price and functionality. The CFO was very keen on a solution that was easily customizable and at a fraction of the cost.
As one of our early clients, we received lots of requirements to modify the Accounting Module in OpenERP and most of our custom developments today were initiated from this relationship.
Name of Client: Netcom
No of Employees: Over 200
Date of Project: 2014
Modules Covered: HR Module and local support
Netcom Africa provides internet services to a number of corporate clients and individual users.As an international company, they have maintained a dominant position in a market that is continually challenged by increasing competition.
Sometime in January 2014, Netcom approached us to help implement OpenERP. For some reasons, the implementation was awarded to a non-Odoo consultant who used the services of a developer in India. Amazingly, this implementation was not completed to the satisfaction of the Client and in October, 2014 we were invited to take over the project and continue to provide local support.
The Netcom project is a clear evidence of the need for a local partner who understands OpenERP deeply and is well resourced to provide post implementation support
Name of Client: Primewash
No of Employees: Over 30
Date of Project: 2013
Modules Covered: Accounting, Payroll, Inventory, Warehousing & Purchasing
Primewash Ltd has raised the standards in the Dry Cleaning industry. From an impressive start at its Port Harcourt office, the company has taken its enviable services to the city of Abuja and is now planning a move to Lagos. The dream to become Nigeria’s leading Dry Cleaning Company is gradually being fulfilled.
As part of positioning the Company for strategic growth, Primewash approached Matt O’Bell for a solution that will manage the inventory and stock of raw materials used in its dry cleaning business. They were looking for a system that would inform them when cleaning materials were low in stock in order, to avoid a delay in customer delivery dates. Furthermore, a large part of their inventory was sourced internationally and hence the need to manage re-order levels and automatically generate purchase orders to preferred overseas vendors. Primewash needed a system to do all of the above in a multi-branch company so that management could get first information about operations and sales from various reports.
OpenERP was a good choice and given the track record of project implementation from Matt O’Bell, this project went well and Primewash currently manages its Accounting, Payroll, Inventory, Warehousing, and Purchasing all from within OpenERP.
