You must be using an outdated ERP system for your business – via multiple software systems, or doing everything on Excel sheets. When you decide to move to Odoo, data migration is one of the most important processes to be taken care of.
Now to put it across , Data migration is either from :
- Odoo Community to Odoo Enterprise
- Legacy Systems to Odoo ERP
- Other ERPs to Odoo
- Version Upgrades from older version of Odoo to current version
Wondered why you’re paying an extra buck for the latest version of Odoo ?
Shouldn’t costs be curbed when a software upgrade is required as it will only add the function and not add to the sum total of the fee?
So the deal is that when you update any existing software, more functionalities are by default added without incurring any extra cost.
Software companies come with updates to fix bugs in the previous version or impending errors, which they will then use to send updates to rectify the previous faults.
Any pop-up message reminding you of an existing update doesn’t impose the same on you. In fact it comes with a cancel or proceeds option stating that these updates are truly optional.
So whether you want an update or not, it is totally your choice. Likewise Odoo updates are also entirely optional.
If you are already using Odoo 12 or lower versions and feel that it’s enough to run your business the way it is, then it should be fine.
If you feel like an upgrade to Odoo 14 has much more speed and sufficient storage along with the inclusive features, which can help in making your business far more robust, then you can very well switch to the higher version.
But here’s the catch!
Higher the upgrade, better the customization options. Thus making your business full-fledged with just one smart upgrade!
Odoo is about to release the next version – Odoo 15 is on its way!
[We are always in the running to publish the latest in Odoo – Odoo 15 and its expected features]
Odoo 14 is ideally considered to be around three to four times faster than the previous Odoo 13. So hypothetically, if Odoo 13 users are supposedly looking for speed, then they can switch to Odoo 14, which is known for its speed.
It is important to note that switching to a higher version is purely an end user’s preference.
The choice to migrate is yours to make but for those who have decided to plunge into this ocean, Else you can switch to the higher versions for better features and improvements.
If you’re asking if we have the answer to when we really should update or migrate from an Odoo old version to the latest Odoo 14?
Most users must be confused about why they should even upgrade from Odoo’s previous versions to Odoo 14?
Here is just the right answer to that.
Features of Odoo 14
Odoo came with extended options for the features and so much more, amplifying the business setting to meet its varied requirements. While the Odoo v14 update is an optional update for all the existing users. Let’s go ahead and dive deep into the essential features of Odoo v14.
Improved User Experience
When we compare Odoo with all the many big ERP names like SAP, Oracle, and Microsoft, Odoo knows its way around and looks just how! By adding more of their shortcut keys to control the system way faster, and then focusing on improving the system speed, Odoo 14 saves so much of your time every day. The users appreciate the fact that there are so many new widgets in the list view. You can also directly send messages to your colleagues with just a single click.
The automated CRM actually helps the user to mostly focus on the clients. CRM is ideally considered a powerful tool and can give your company a better insight. In the absence of a good and effective CRM, Salespeople will always tend to fill in the customer’s information randomly. It also becomes difficult for all the other team members to then follow up or even fetch the complete sales information. That is why we say that Odoo 14 CRM is automated, and the user can very much easily add and search the customer’s data with utmost accuracy.
Odoo users have actually been asking for this feature very much because they could not previously log their previous communication with their clients and have it updated automatically in the CRM. In Odoo v14, the Outlook plugin is used to automate communication logging making this a feature that is aimed at helping the sales managers who will want to track all their communications far more effectively than their subordinates.
The to-Do list of the Activities
Odoo 14 aims to mainly help the salespeople focus on their all-time primary task of job – selling, instead of all the tedious data input. With the new and improved features of adding a to-do list in the activities, salespeople can now quickly check the to-do lists for almost every day, the next activity, and its every priority with all the potential impact. With the improved and advanced option to follow-up in the existing section, the salespeople will then be able to send an email or SMS to all their potential clients directly from the CRM itself.
Not just this, there’s so much more!
That is why migration by Odoo is almost the best option there is as it not only saves costs for your business but also comes with all the needed customization options that you will need to spend just the amount for migration and enjoy a ton of new features.
Higher the upgrade, the better!
