These figures are growing by the day, thanks to the latest version of Odoo, Odoo 15, which is faster than previous versions of Odoo. Odoo 14 is an example of this.

In this blog, we'll discuss "Odoo Enterprise vs Community in Version 15 Comparison."

Before I begin, I'll explain what ERP is and how it evolved from TinyERP to OpenERP to Odoo.

Let's get started with ERP.

ERP: stands for enterprise resource planning system, and it is the glue that holds a huge company's various computer systems together. Without an ERP solution, each department's system would be tailored to its own needs. Each department still has its own system, but with ERP software, all of the systems can be accessed through a single application with a single interface.

ERP is a software system that aids in the management of your complete organization, including financial, human resource, manufacturing, CRM, accounting, sales, supply chain, services, procurement, and other functions.

TinyERP: Odoo's founder and current CEO, Fabien Pinckaers, began developing his first software product, TinyERP, in 2005.

OpenERP: The name was changed to OpenERP three years later. The company swiftly expanded, and by 2010, OpenERP had grown to over 100 employees. The company was named the fastest-growing company in Belgium by Deloitte in 2013, with a five-year growth rate of 1549 percent.

Odoo 15 comes in two Versions: Odoo Community and Odoo Enterprise.

Odoo Community Version: Odoo Community Version is a fully open-source version distributed under the LGPLV3 license that does not require a license. It has limited features, but it can help you manage your business goals. The lack of infinite functional support, version upgrading, and hosting assistance are only a few of the disadvantages of the Odoo community compared to the Odoo enterprise. In addition, there is no support for the mobile version or the studio. Odoo Community does not allow for full usage of the Sales, HRMS, website, eCommerce, and other modules.

Odoo Enterprise Version: Odoo Enterprise Edition is a licensed version of Odoo that includes additional features and functionality. You never have to pay for software that you don't use, even if there are licensing fees. This feature lowers your overall expenditures by ensuring that you only use the programs that your company requires.

Let's look at the main differences between the Community and Enterprise editions of Odoo 15.

General Features :

There are some general features that are applicable to Odoo 15 Enterprise version, but not to Odoo 15 Community version, such as Unlimited Functional Support, Upgrade to the latest version with database, Better Hosting Facility, and Unlimited bug repairing.


Odoo 15 Community is only available on the desktop, whereas Odoo 15 Enterprise is available on both the desktop and mobile platforms, thanks to its mobile-friendly UI.
