The question I have,

what business could be successful in using the out of box functionality? I am not aware of any.

In Argentina we have the same problem, specially with electronic invoices. We solved it hosting Odoo on the customer servers. Not ideal for small customers, but works for medium clients

Hope this helps,

Well of course if you need custom programming or custom modules then of course it's not a very good solution.

That is the one thing that would really make it difficult for me.  In Chile, all invoices need to be done electronically between companies.  So I would need a second solution for this (since I can't install a third party module in Odoo on SaaS).  I am sure that custom programming by Odoo would be very expensive.

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 business

It 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 modules

Before 6500€ and now 2800€

Oh well... decisions...

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 server
2) They backup my server
3) They answer my questions, resolve my problems.
4) They upgrade my software
5) 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...
