OpenERP became Odoo

During the Open Days, we said a final goodbye to OpenERP and officially welcomed Odoo - new brand with better apps and amazing services.

One need, one app. Fully integrated. Welcome, Odoo!

Odoo's amazing partners

Gold sponsors - Audaxis, PC Sol and Eezee-IT - were meeting people in their booths all day long. Silver sponsors - Noviat, Camptocamp, Acsone, Dynapps, Rack-oon and IT IS were always ready to answer any question or discuss a business idea. Bronze sponsors together with partners - BHC, Omnia SolutionsSavoir-Fair Linux, Big Consulting and Technifutur were present every day and welcoming interested participants.
On Wednesday, people could meet our partners ICHEC-PME and FJE; on Thursday it was Regional-IT.

Exhibition hall was a big success and for the next year, we are planning an even more interactive exhibition with workshops and demos!
