Implementing Odoo without a Partner is like flying a plane without air traffic control.
One of the most compelling reasons companies choose Odoo is the ease of access, simple sign-up, and transparent pricing. But don't let this supposed ease of access fool you - Odoo is a complex system and, when implemented badly, can cause more issues than it solves (see Odoo Rescue).
Implementing Odoo without a Partner is like flying a plane without air traffic control. Here's why:
You need to know where you are
Partners benefit from seeing many implementations, most likely in your industry. They know the pitfalls, issues, and shortcomings and can anticipate issues you're facing and get ahead of them.
You need to know where you're going
A true Partner helps you to achieve your wider business goals; they're an extension of your team and can help provide you with a map to achieving your goals. A true Partner will challenge and support you to be better.
When you need support, you really need it
Sometimes you need a simple question answered; sometimes, you just need some advice on best practices, but sometimes it all goes to hell in a handcart. Having a Partner with you can get you out of trouble - quickly.
The user manual only goes so far
The technical manual and Google searches only get you so far. Partners have a collective knowledge of hundreds of projects, questions, and processes and can provide advice and guidance in the real world.
Systems get better, so must you
With major annual releases of Odoo, it's easy to fall behind and not take advantage of existing or new functionality. Your Partner will help you select what functions are best for your business and keep you on-track.
