Datasmith’s experience and capabilities will ensure your company’s Odoo implementation is
a success. Datasmith has effectively and timeously implemented Odoo ecommerce, point of sales, financials, warehousing, projects, sales, purchasing and CRM.
More and more SA businesses are implementing Odoo every week as they realise the benefits of open-source principles. We are proud to deliver Odoo services to our clients and look forward to more companies joining the community.
Regina Murerwa, says, “We went with Odoo because they were the people who could provide us with the deliverables and functions we wanted. We explained our programme and the functionality we needed, and they understood us.”
“We use Odoo for data capturing for the projects we have and storage purposes and some reports. The analytical function is limited because our organisation didn’t have funds to purchase those modules, we’d like to eventually do that. It’s working well for what we prescribed. I would definitely recommend Odoo, the software application is working well,” she says.
Des Killassy, Director, says, “We do a lot of buy-outs and Odoo can handle these in a more efficient way. Odoo records where we buy from, the order number, allocating that to an invoice and to the person who opened it, etc. It gives us more control.”
I like the system. I like the simplicity of it. I’m impressed by the way it is running my company at the moment. I’m happy with the reporting the system it comes bolted with. We plan to progress our other company onto Odoo but we’re first checking and once all issues have been ironed out, we’ll do that,” he says.

She says, “We choose Odoo because we work with various foreign currencies and languages. Other ERP systems couldn’t cater for French, Dutch, Portuguese and English, while Odoo could.
“We are satisfied with the system, there were some things we wanted that it didn’t offer, and we worked around those, but languages were the biggest thing. Using Odoo I could view documents, like our General Ledger that is in Portuguese, in English. I would definitely recommend Odoo for smaller businesses, it’s easy to use, easy to understand and follow.”
Director, Grant Bresler, says. “We chose Odoo because of its integration between the various components. Lots of software is run by the accounts department, this is customer-focused, customer service software.
“FTS Safety uses the full ERP system, we use nothing else. We’re very satisfied because of its flexibility and adaptability to our business. This system adapts to our business needs and our customer needs rather than trying to shoehorn all that into an accounting package,” he says.
“I would absolutely recommend it. We’re also very happy with Datasmith’s support. They have been so good. They came in with their expertise and straightened out the system. Now our system is robust, solid and the support is excellent,” he says.

Owner, Aldalio Obra, says, “We were looking for system that we could do different point of sales in different locations, in real time. The sale entries must link directly to the accounting system, which Odoo does. The cost of the system was also a consideration. In Odoo we found one online system that was cheaper for us to use and be happy with.”
“I am satisfied with the system. In terms of performance, it is doing very well, the kind of reports it does, the time it takes to do reports is good.
“We get good support from Datasmith. We are always in touch, they are supporting our projects. We are still growing and learning together and figuring out our issues. If we have big issues, Des is always there to assist.”
“I do recommend Odoo for other businesses, if you can deploy Odoo.sh so that you can customise it more. For small businesses you can use the online Odoo, you just purchase license. But if you want control over who can deploy things, there are developments to customise the system to be more confident of its security, then use Odoo,sh,” he says.

Mirela McGowan, CFO says, “We choose Odoo because of its flexibility and the price is good for what you get. You can buy different modules and use what you need. You don’t need to buy a big system or modules that you’re not using.”
“As CFO, I am loving the system. The flexibility in terms of finding data and reporting is logical and simple. You don’t need fancy execution codes. I have worked on JDA and SAP before and this is so much more intuitive. It’s logical and it makes sense. I can generate any report I need and I can analyse data, and I can do it myself. I don’t need a developer to help me. For a smaller business it works well,” she says.
“As a manager Odoo provides transparency so you can easily see what’s happening in the business. It’s just so simple to use.”
