Competition is good! It adds the factor of quality!
Every Sun which rises is going to set for sure!

if we are listing competition I would also mention erpnext ( from India I think. I looked at that a little a year ago and I looked not bad. I decided to go with OpenERP mainly because I had the impression the OpenERP Community was quite big and quite strong (which has proven to be true). What I really liked about erpnext (and what I hope Odoo might learn a little from them) was when I received a survey from asking their users to vote for what features should be the focus of development. Also I think their pricing for a supported version was pretty competitive compared to OpenERP

Hi all!

This idea is not new, but ist is definetly the biggest one at the moment.
It remains to be seen what happens.

Here is another one in Germany and for Germany which is currently online since 9 month:

This is only a SAAS solution and it is not Opensource. It is free for 1 user.

The strategy behind is always the same. Catch the company for free at the beginning. If it grows make it to a payable customer.

Hi Guys, Hi Fabien

out of curiosity, I just spotted Berlin based NumberFour AG in german review "manager magazin" as some heavyweight competition for Odoo.

Made by the inventor of OpenOffice (Star Office), it now operates "secretly" (manager magazin, p154 -12/2014) on quite the same product going for the very same market.

The range of investors covers silicon vally heavyweights as Sun Microsystems Co-Founder Andreas von Berchtoltsheim and Klaus Hommels (Skype, Xing, Facebook, Spotify). Series A financing provided $ 38M for preparing market launch (announced on June 27th, 2013).

A look on the job page might be interesting ( a quick google tells thr rest of the story.

Odoo, I'd say, they are on your (our) heels...

Lead Investor statement:
“From a technology perspective, small businesses are the most underserved market in the world. NumberFour is the first comprehensive business platform that offers amazing technology, wrapped in apps with a stunningly simple user interface.”
