Odoo ERP Overview

Odoo • Image and Text

Odoo is a package of business process management modules that serve broad business use cases with full software development support. Odoo provides 10+ dedicated modules to manage different business processes efficiently, including CRM, HRM, finance, accounting, development, inventory, and eCommerce. 

The primary benefit of using Odoo ERP is that under a general public license you get an open-source community version that is free to use. As you don't need to buy a software license, the total project expense is greatly reduced. For this purpose, for small-to-medium businesses, the community version is better suited.

Odoo Business Intelligence Features

Odoo ERP offers a comprehensive data visualization and analysis software interface that helps companies to capitalize on their sources of data. Odoo ERP offers a comprehensive dashboard interface and powerful business intelligence capabilities for data mining and secret meaning extraction. Let's go ahead and dig through Odoo Business Intelligence and data analysis key features:



Integrated Spreadsheets - Odoo Business Intelligence Reporting

A very useful feature was introduced by Odoo 14 to preserve the ease and comfort of users working in excel spreadsheets. The creation and review of data on ERP screens/reports often become untidy and hectic. Users had to download the pivot view of every report initially for editing in the excel spreadsheet. They had to re-upload it to the corresponding screens after editing. The new feature makes it easier for us to build and store excel sheets in the ERP itself. This makes it easy to review reports and its intelligent dashboard pivot table link helps to retrieve live data.

Like ordinary Excel spreadsheets, users can perform all possible acts and input formulas. Users can add columns, delete columns, add new formulas, apply conditional formatting, and so on. It's also incredibly fast.

All company-related records have been uploaded, stored, and exchanged using the Documents framework. This app has been updated to 'Build SPREADSHEET' with a new feature, which will be in the .xls format. To make it easy to find the sheets, as shown below, they can be saved in module-wise directories.

Consider taking a CRM example, where the dashboard's pivot view is as shown below. Here, for lead analysis, we can add filters or perform dropdown behavior. If users are more comfortable evaluating CRM leads with excel sheets, they can move this information directly from here to the excel spreadsheet inside the ERP without downloading it. As shown below, this can be achieved by selecting the 'INSERT IN SPREADSHEET' button. This function helps prevent and manage many downloads of ERP-related spreadsheets on a desktop PC.

In this spreadsheet, you will find all the data linked to your pivot table on the respective dashboard. You can directly locate live change data from the dashboard to this layer. In order to display data as per choice, users can still use filters. It is often possible to introduce tables, formulas, and conditions. Even the feature 'Vlook-up' runs at a great pace here.

The Integrated Spreadsheet in Documents app is a unique function that allows reporting very easily, saving you valuable time. This is available in all dashboards of various modules where the reports in pivot table view need to be evaluated. Check the below video for more information about the integrated spreadsheet.
 
 

Sales Analysis

To monitor sales data and keep sales records for future reference, Odoo Business Intelligence offers an intuitive dashboard GUI.
