The rise of Odoo started in 2005, by the name TinyERP, a product that Fabien Pinckaers created which he thought would change the enterprise world. As with anything, Fabien and team experienced successes and failures along the way; learning to adjust and adapt was just part of the plan. In the beginning, TinyERP was running on enthusiasm alone. Soon came the realization that you cannot be tiny in this big world. That was when TinyERP was renamed OpenERP.
OpenERP pivoted and changed from a service company to a software company, also changing the business model to building a solid partner network. During this phase, OpenERP created a resilient and robust management team responsible for what changes would happen next. The following change was building new departments such as R&D and Sales, which added to the speed of the company’s growth rate. At this point, OneERP had 500 partners in 100 counties.
Between 2007 and 2011, OpenERP experienced phenomenal growth - growing 1,549%, all while figuring out how to mature as a company. OpenERP was being installed one thousand times per day. There were two million users worldwide, 60 new modules released every month, and the numbers kept rising. In 2014, OpenERP was renamed Odoo, and a new era began.
You can manage everything for your business through Odoo: Sales, CRM, Accounting & Finance, Marketing, Warehouse Management, Manufacturing, Purchasing, Services & Projects, Human Resources, Usability & Productivity, and Pricing & Conditions. When compared side by side with other ERP software companies, Odoo offers more features in it's modules for less money, meaning that it is more accessible to users around the world.

Odoo leads the ERP market in every aspect because they genuinely care about where you put your money, how they can improve your processes, and how they can make your business function better.
