Odoo Enterprise Resource Planning Site
Odoo, formerly known as OpenERP, isn’t just one application.
Odoo is an enterprise resource platform from which you can manage all your business operations – from supply chain and project management, to accounting and HR.
Out of the box, Odoo includes messaging, sales CRM and reporting modules.
Click the settings tab and you’ll be presented with nearly 2000 other modules – bug tracking, project management, timesheets, MRP, recruiting, calendar, warehouse management, and much, much more – that can be deployed with one click.
Odoo is an all-in-one management software that offers a range of business applications that form a complete suite of enterprise management applications targeting companies of all sizes.
Odoo is an all-in-one business software including CRM, website/e-commerce, billing, accounting, manufacturing, warehouse - and project management, and inventory.
The Community version is the open source version while the Enterprise version supplements the Community edition with commercial features and services.
The source code for the OpenObject framework and core ERP (enterprise resource planning) modules is curated by the Belgium-based Odoo S.A.
The last fully featured open source version was 8.0 (LTS), available on GitHub under AGPLv3.

Source Code Model
From inception, Odoo S.A / OpenERP S.A have released software as open source but starting with the V9.0 release, the company has transitioned to an open core model which provides subscription-based proprietary enterprise software and cloud-hosted software as a service, and a cut-down community version.
Community & Network
In 2013, the not-for-profit Odoo Community Association was formed to promote the widespread use of Odoo and to support the collaborative development of Odoo features.
This organisation has over 150 members who are a mix of individuals and organisations.
However, there are over 20,000 people that contribute to the Odoo community.
Odoo S.A. switched its focus from being a service company to focus more on software publishing and the SaaS business.
Customized programming, support, and other services, are provided by an active global community and a network of over 700 official partners and integrators.
Modules & Components
The main Odoo components are the OpenObject framework, about 30 core modules (also called official modules) and more than 5000 community modules.
Odoo has been used as a component of university courses, and it became a compulsory subject for the baccalaureate in France, just like Word, Excel and PowerPoint.
A study on experiential learning suggested that Odoo (then known as OpenERP) provides a suitable alternative to proprietary systems to supplement teaching.
Odoo also offers a completely free programme called Odoo Education, which allows teachers and/or students to create an Odoo database for academic purposes.
Software & Architecture
Odoo uses Python scripting and PostgreSQL database.
The Community edition repository is on GitHub.
The three last LTS versions are supported in parallel.
This means that when a new LTS version is released, an older version reaches its end-of-life and is not supported any more.
As an example, 9.0 LTS will be supported along with 10.0 LTS and 11.0 LTS, but it will reach end-of-life when 12.0 LTS is released.
In 2005, Fabien Pinckaers, the founder and current CEO of Odoo, started to develop his first software product, TinyERP.
Three years later the name was changed to OpenERP.
The company started to evolve quickly and in 2010, OpenERP had become a 100+ employee company.
In 2013, the company won a Deloitte award for being that fastest growing company in Belgium, with 1549% growth over a five-year period.
In 2014, OpenERP moved beyond the boundaries of traditional ERP players and the company was renamed Odoo, a name without restrictions, to allow the company to grow in whichever direction.
In 2015, Inc. Magazine placed Odoo in the top 5000 fastest-growing private companies in Europe.
Awards and recognition
Odoo is rated by erp-systems.zone as the most popular open source ERP system and ranks tenth across all ERP applications based on web searches, job offers and social media coverage.
Odoo has received several recognitions, before changing its name it received awards as OpenERP including Trends Gazelle, Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Award and the Infoworld's BOSSIE Award 2013 and by changing its name to Oddo it continued 3 years more winning consecutively BOSSIE Awards in 2014, 2015 and 2016.
