Middle and large size businesses have been targeted by so-called “ERP consultants” more or less affiliated to the Odoo Indonesia Partner program for a few years now in Jakarta and Indonesia as a whole. From my own private experience, less than half of the projects I have been called-in to try fix were finished. In most cases, implementation schedule was long time expired while the budget was already partly or entirely spent.
The initial idea was to deploy Odoo because it was a lot cheaper and more flexible than Standard ERPs or even accounting sytems (SAP, ACCURATE etc…). But after pickng an Odoo partner Indonesia , the result was too often a huge unusable mess and a pure financial loss. I see unfinished implementations on a weekly basis and most of the time, the drama is: It cannot be fixed because original analysis was faulty or absent and too much data has already been input and moved around to no avail.
Because ERP covers ALL domains of the enterprise, the appointed Odoo partner Indonesia consultant must be an expert in the following: Accounting, Finance, Logistics, Warehousing, Production etc… not mentioning Business Workflow, and most importantly, Linux systems expetise. I see too much amateurism: people with total lack of knowledge selling Odoo solutions with no idea of the disastrous consequences for the businesses they target.
After almost two decades of ERP, security and WEB consulting world-wide, I decided to settle in Jakarta. I consulted for large businesses, banks, governments and armies. This blog is containing a non-exhaustive list of advice, tweaks, recommendations, codes, scripts that will help you optimize that great Odoo Platform and the system that runs it! I have seen too much drama and incompetence around Odoo. So, if you consider using Odoo for yourslef or one of your clients, subscribe to our free newsletter or click below !
