How Do You Choose the Right Odoo Partner for Your Project?
Choosing the right Odoo partner for your project is very important. This working relationship is like a marriage, both parties have to give it their best. Implementing an ERP system is expensive because of the time and money investment involved. Choosing a partner blindly could leave you having to do your ERP implementation twice.
The following are best practices to find the right Odoo partner for you. There is a pdf version for you to print and use as a checklist.
Odoo is open source software, meaning anybody can customize the code base. Select only an accredited Odoo Gold Partner. Do not blindly believe what the business has written on their own website, check Odoo.com to see if this company is listed as an official Odoo Partner. There are partners all over the globe, so filter based on the country. https://www.odoo.com/partners
Ask for customer references from the partner and get an email introduction so that you can talk to them one to one. Do your homework on this customer, what they do, how they use Odoo and prepare questions prior to the call. Always ask them what the partner could have done differently or improved upon.
If your project is not an Odoo install from scratch and is more of a rescue, ask the partner to connect you with a prior Odoo rescue.
Ask the partner to explain their process during the project implementation.
If the project is going to take longer than 2 weeks, the partner should have weekly status meetings with you and run the project as weekly sprints.
Identify one person as a project champion or manager from your business. This person doesn’t need to be tech savvy but they should be able to communicate internally with your team to bring the right departments to meetings as needed and have a good rapport with your Odoo partner.
Before finalizing your choice of Odoo partner, read about them on Google, BBB and Clutch.co. These are very good sources to see what others think of the partner, both the good and the bad.
Clearly understand the different methodologies that the Odoo partner is open to work with. Some partners will charge you only after the requirements are gathered via conferencing tools. Some partners want you to spend several thousand dollars upfront for a “quick start”. Some want to do time and material, a block of hours, or a fixed cost proposal. No matter what you choose, select one where your Odoo partner is not acting like a law firm, charging you for every meeting in small time block increments.
Ask them to explain how the UAT or go-live support would be handled.
Ask them to review any post go-live support they offer.
Make sure you do not release 100% of the project costs until running the system after go-live for a week or two.
Choose a good hosting environment like AWS or Digital Ocean if you are not using Odoo.sh
Make sure you have the entire codebase, file store and DB dump in your GIT repository and have the partner push code every week. (Accept no excuses, we have seen horror stories where people pay thousands and don’t have anything to show for it.)
Accounting and finance are the heart of your business. If the numbers are not right, nothing is right. Choose an Odoo partner who has resources well versed in US accounting.
Select an Odoo partner who has done multiple Odoo version migrations successfully. Talk to their customers who have gone through Odoo version migrations. The reason for this is very simple, if the partner does not follow best practices in customization, especially doing Odoo core module hacks – version migration is going to be a nightmare, at times even impossible.
We have seen so many bad practices in the industry, 40% of our Odoo business is Odoo project rescues. We will continue to update the following checklist.
