Stephen,I do not see a flaw in the line of reasoning except that if you need tailoring -coding, not configuration- the SaaS option does not really apply. Or is it me who is missing something here?
Even going for the example shown in the advert (2600€ per annum) it is a great buy.
And if you have a US subsidiary or central office, it is 20% cheaper.
The free months of consultancy are welcome gravy.

This is why I like the forum software, I can edit my mistakes. In my example odoo is actually slightly more expensive for a small businessIt was 15€ x users x modules or 90€ a month for 3 users with 2 modules. That is 1080€ a year before 10% discount for paying in advance (972€).I guess I just never calculated what a small business would cost for the SaaS solution.The real savings come from medium size business. Their example of 10 users with 4 modulesBefore 6500€ and now 2800€Oh well... decisions...On Fri, Jan 2, 2015 at 12:55 PM, Stephen Mack <email@example.com> wrote:Odoo's new pricing structure is almost making it impossible to resist for small businesses. I had always planned on hosting my own Odoo solution but now for 1000€ a year (3 users with 2 modules [CRM/Sales & Website/eCommerce]) it's almost too good to resist. Considering before the same solution cost 6500€ for 3 users with 2 modules.1) They host my server2) They backup my server3) They answer my questions, resolve my problems.4) They upgrade my software5) I get access to v9 functionality before v9 is released.6) If I want another module it's only 200€ a year extra (regardless of the number of users)I sound like a paid advertiser, however I am just surprised. And now I am really considering their SaaS offering. Am I missing the downside?Honestly full hosting solution would cost me less than 50€ a year so they are making good money above a generic hosting company. They already give away the software. So basically I am considering is paying 1000€ worth the hours I would need to run and maintain my own small server... I think so, well done Odoo.Comments anyone...--Stephen
