There are a lot of terms that can get thrown around, when it comes to making your Odoo ERP system your own assets that include customization and configuration. Your business requirements will be collected by experts of your Odoo ERP implementation partner. Either configuration or customization of the system will be done to meet your needs.
There is a confusion with Odoo Configurations vs Odoo Customization with a lot of people many times though both are different.
There is a huge difference in Customization v/s Odoo Configuration as both work on a different model. Customization includes adding new code in either an existing module of Odoo or creating a new module through coding to meet the needs of the company. Whereas Odoo Configurations include only settings in ERP software to meet the needs of the customer. The time-frame for both varies as Customization requires time whereas configuration can be done in a few clicks.
When you customize an Odoo ERP software, you are building functionality that doesn’t currently exist anywhere in the software even through 3rd party apps. If your Odoo Partner don’t have the capabilities to achieve the customizations you are looking out for then there may be difficulties that will increase your implementation timeline and the desire outcome of a particular Odoo Module.
- Odoo Customization requires both Odoo Technical as well as Function knowledge.
- Odoo Custom Development needs powerful Product knowledge.
- Customization is always unique to your company processes.
- Custom Codings are added to meet business requirements
- Can be costly compare to Configurations.
- Requires Time for Planning, Coding as per Odoo Standards, development, Testing, Interlinking with other Modules.
- Customizations may require allocation of Multiple Odoo resources such as Technical, Functional, Testers etc.
Odoo Configurations is not as tricky compare to customizations because with Configurations you just change the existing functionality without coding. When you are configuring Odoo ERP you are actually building the workflows in a few clicks. Odoo Configuration capabilities are very important part compare to customization. The Odoo vendor must be able to understand the complete level of configurations that can be performed in Odoo. Else, with poor configuration knowledge, the vendor will end up customizing everything in Odoo which will increase the ERP implementation cost as well as timelines of the project.
- Odoo Configuration requires a deep Odoo Knowledge and understanding of each module. Example – MRP, Sales, Human Resource Management.
- Odoo Configuration never touches the core code of the module. Everything is handled through Odoo settings.
- Configuration can be easily revertible if not suiting your business needs.
- Configurations are cheaper compare to Customizations.
- Configurations need lesser time but a thorough understanding of where the other modules will affect with a particular configuration.
- Configuration of Odoo ERP can be handled by Functional resource – Technical resource may not be required
