FAQs ABOUT ODOO IMPLEMENTATIONS

Why do we need an implementation partner, why shouldn’t we implement Odoo by myself?

There are several reasons why implementing your Odoo with a partner usually ends up with success:

  • EXPERTISE & GOOD PRACTICES FROM YOUR INDUSTRY
    Our consultants, project managers, analysts & developers have experience with implementations from a similar industry & scope to yours. They are there to also advise you how to adjust your processes & workflows to streamline them and help you improve the raise efficiency of your business.
    What a lot of businesses often forget about is, that ERP implementation is not only deploying an IT system, but it is about setting right & smart processes.

    Port Citizens are true experts in Odoo - they are certified in versions 12 and 13 of the system and have years of experience with ERP, business consulting & Odoo.

  • GOOD CONTROL OF THE PROJECT BUDGET & TIMELINE
    Because of extensive experience with Odoo implementations, Port Cities has proven implementation methodologyexpertise & project controlling in place to ensure smooth & timely delivery of your project. 

How long does an Odoo implementation take?

Each implementation is different and it goes without saying that the length of the project until the go-live depends on the scope of the project. It can be as short as several days (in case of base Odoo implementation), but it can also take months.

With bigger implementations, Port Cities usually advise to split implementation into several smaller phases, to ensure, that the client can start reaping the benefits of the new system as soon as possible.

If we appoint an Odoo partner to handle our implementation, does it mean they handle everything for us?

Unfortunately, it is not possible to fully outsource ERP implementation to your IT partner and if someone tells you any different, we recommend you to be careful about that advice.

ERP implementation is a complex topic, which requires attention from your team to give regular inputs, discuss proposed solutions, approve of the functionalities of the system, prepare the data, and most importantly, communicate this change to your end users. Change management is often one of the biggest challenges for companies of different sizes & implementation can be successful only if the managers of the departments which will use the new system show ownership & support to their team members in this change.
