Odoo is giving a run for money to not only it’s fellow opensource implementors but also to big licensed software providers. From the beginning Odoo has understood the basic requirements of businesses/users from the grass-root level and has done a tremendous job by very wisely putting into place the objects and relevant features. This user friendly interface is winning hearts across all the industries.
