Website Builder: Introducing our AI engine!
We understand starting a website from scratch can be difficult, that is why we’ve developed an Artificial Intelligence engine that designs your website automatically! All you have to do is answer 4 questions, pick a colour theme or upload your companies’ logo and a pre-generated website template is generated. If you upload your company’s logo, the colors from your logo will be applied directly to the website template. Give it a try here: https://www.odoo.com/app/website#

A Modern Point of Sale (POS)
The new features in Odoo 15 are a game changer for retail. Retailers will be able to offer better services, spend more time with customers and have the opportunity to grow their business. All POS features work directly in the front end; cashiers no longer have to go to the backend.
POS in Odoo 15 works out of the box. It can now be directly connected to the printer, the cashier and payment terminals. No IoT box is required.
A variety of UX and UI improvements have been made such as spotting the cashier tab with a grey favicon, extra information on invoices and receipts, tips improvement, several opened sessions warning and more! You can also enjoy a freshly updated and mobile-friendly version of PoS Shop and Restaurant.
Coupons and Promotions are now supported both in eCommerce and POS. Go paperless with Odoo! You can now send your customers’ receipts by email instead of printing them.
After Sales Services are now possible through Odoo POS. With backend integration you can benefit from other apps such as Subscription, Rental and Repairs Services. Closing for the day? You can now receive a Summary Report of all the sales and payments made during a sales session.
Inventory and Manufacturing Excellence
For Odoo 15, warehouse operations have been designed around the following 7 principles: minimal touches of goods, one-way flow, stock in the right place, right amount of stock, optimized labour, minimize errors, fast & reliable.
From receipt to the goods we’ve optimized the number of touch points. The majority of warehouse management systems have around 7-8 touch points. In Odoo 15, we have decreased this to 3-4 touch points per good.
Multiple stores? No problem, we’ve got you covered! Odoo has a multiple warehouse management system (WMS) for you to operate! We’ve designed a one way flow to ensure easy organisation and minimize the distance travelled by employees. By optimizing where you store goods you can save up to 20-30% of time to operate your warehouse.
In Odoo 15, you can now view multiple users on tasks, make calls within the application (both voice and video). This is super handy for employees on the field. In Projects, you can now reschedule dependent tasks automatically when there is an overlap and manage document changes for the product template and its BOM(s) separately. In addition, the IoT box now supports the OPC UA new protocol.
Even smoother Accounting processes
You can officially say goodbye to manually processing customer invoices because in Odoo 15, we have OCR available for customer invoices. You can also say hello to our revamped reconciliation tool. By default, Odoo will partially reconcile invoices/bills. Fully reconcile invoices/bills in case of underpayments thanks to payment tolerance mechanism and specify the counterpart accounts for the difference.
Teamwork makes the dream work; you can now collaborate with colleagues on Spreadsheets! Collaborative tags are available and display when hovered over.
At Odoo, we use our own accounting app to manage all 9 of our offices. We manage a smooth invoicing process easily even though we have multiple sources, different VAT regulations and different VAT numbers. Odoo 15 supports companies that must charge foreign VAT, and declare VAT in foreign countries.
The EU intra-community Distance Selling feature helps your organization apply the correct VAT rate according to the client's country by creating and configuring new fiscal positions and taxes.
With the new features you can export your VAT statements with one click. All the companies that have multiple VAT numbers, can now link it to a single legal entity and have all their tax reports immediately in one company.
For our accounting program, in version 15, we have a brand new dashboard for accounting firms. You can now organize with workspaces and tags, easily upload docs and exchange them with customers, bulk actions and integrate with accounting.
