So whether you want an ERP system, an accounting system, a CRM or an ecommerce store, Odoo can help you build all of these and get them integrated with each other for greater data streamlining and operational efficiency.

The developers who have worked on Odoo will make lesser mistakes and conduct proper testing before implementing changes.

You can ask questions like “Have you solved any problem of Odoo platform by releasing a Odoo app? “Have you found bugs in the existing platform?” etc to the Odoo developers of the company. If the answers to the above questions are “Yes” you can go ahead and strike a deal.

The team size

Client references

A reputed IT firm would’ve worked on multiple projects based on different platforms. Hence, make sure you ask for the client history and references.

If the company has international clients and has worked with different sectors, you can consider hiring it for your project.
