Odoo 15 is the best Odoo ERP yet. A modular structured ERP software system is integrated with key features that allow the automation of all the core business procedures. And it’s provided - at least in part - as a free of charge open-source solution with annual updates.

The latest update was released in October and was hailed by fans as a feature-rich offering. We’ll break down why, but first, a refresher.

What is an ERP?

Enterprise resource planning (ERP) refers to an type of software that organisations use to manage day-to-day business activities such as accounting, procurement, project management, risk management and compliance and supply chain operations,. A complete ERP suite also includes enterprise performance management, software that help plan, budget, predict and report an organisation's financial results.



New features of Odoo 15

In October, Odoo unveiled a suite of desirable features, making it one of the best and most competitive ERP Platform on the market. New features include:


  1. AI website tool – The new update includes AI to build your website based on your industry and the information you provide. The Website Configurator creates a website for a client based on related industry information and a company logo provided. An interesting fact about Website Builder is that it is 35% faster than the previous Odoo version. Additionally, it has all the extra features you want like an updated Google Analytics integration, ability to add your own code, newsletter management, modern themes and global search functionality.

  2. New channels & formats - While Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter were always supported by Odoo in a multi-company format, this new update adds Instagram and YouTube as well. Plus, GIFs are now supported. This further enriches the media experience you get with Odoo 15.

  3. Modern retail POS- The new POS is all front-end. According to Odoo “POS in Odoo 15 works out of the box. It can now be directly connected to the printer, the cashier and payment terminals. No IoT box is required. [And] a variety of UX and UI improvements have been made such as spotting the cashier tab with a grey favicon, extra information on invoices and receipts, tips improvement, several opened sessions warning and more! You can also enjoy a freshly updated and mobile-friendly version of PoS Shop and Restaurant.” Plus, extra services, coupons and promos all work better now.

  4. Better accounting function - Now, Odoo uses optical character recognition (OCR) to scan in your customer invoices. You don’t have to put them in manually anymore. And with the new reconciliation tool resolving them is faster than ever before. Lastly, with the new distance selling features, you can do business anywhere with the right taxes and formats for that region.

And that’s not all that Odoo has to offer. If you think this ground-breaking ERP might be right for your organisation; or if you need help migrating to Odoo 15, talk to our helpful team today.
