Smart IT acqu​ires trading busin​ess of Opus VL

Smart IT, the UK’s largest and most successful Odoo Gold partner, has acquired the trading business of Odoo Community partner, Opus VL. 

The Acquisition, effective 14 July 2023, compliments the existing solution offering of Smart IT and extends our footprint into pockets of the public sector, particularly the NHS where Opus VL has had significant success.


With the transfer of the Opus VL Software Development Centre to Smart IT, this purchase significantly bolsters, and compliments Smart IT’s technical capability which is based on a UK-based, employee-only model to ensure quality and project continuity.
