Odoo is a suite of open-source business apps written in Python and released under the AGPL license. It is used by 2 million users worldwide[third-party source needed] to manage companies of all different sizes. The main Odoo components are the server, 260 core modules (also called official modules) and around 4000 community modules.
Odoo was formerly known as OpenERP until May 2014. It was rebranded because version 8 of the software introduced apps including website builder, e-commerce, point of sale and business intelligence. The software conforms to standard expectations of ERP systems, while providing additional modules beyond the coverage of traditional ERP systems.
The official Odoo apps are organized in 6 groups:
Front-end apps: website builder, blog, e-commerce
Sales management apps: CRM, point of sales, quotation builder
Business operations apps: project management, inventory, manufacturing, accounting and purchase
Marketing apps: mass mailing, lead automation, events, survey, forum, live chat
Human Resources apps: employee directory, enterprise social network, leaves management, timesheet, fleet management
Productivity apps: business intelligence, instant messaging, notes
The software is actively programmed, supported, and organized by Odoo S.A. Odoo is similar to many open source projects where customized programming, support, and other services are also provided by an active global community and a network of 500 official partners.
