Odoo is the world's easiest all-in-one management software. It includes hundreds of business apps:
CRM | e-Commerce | Accounting | Inventory | PoS | Project management | MRP | etc.
I have no idea how to start with this. Yes ok multi-company will be the magic word. The companies are not related, they do not share anything. Only the user(s) are the same. They can make use of the same modules and the same localisation.
The reason I want to do this is saving costs for OPW and easier communication via OpenERP for the users.
I also would like to know multi-company technical basic architecture, how it is realized. This is to get more basic idea's about the issues that can arise and how to solve.
First of all I would advise to avoid having the same users on both companies.
A user will have one login per company. Otherwise, unless you develop some company switcher function, it will be hard to determine for which company a user is doing things. Like creating a Sale Order, what will be the company?
Also to be known:
What mainly separate access for users from one company to the other are the access rules.
A domain filter like that on pretty much all objects:
And a last thing, not all module have been deeply tested in multi-company mode. So prepare yourself to write some bug reports.
