>From our experience, it mostly depends on the size of the project or
company. Out-of-the-box is great for companies having less than 20
users: the implementation is faster, the budget is much lower and they
can evolve easily. Note that out-of-the-box does not mean "without
customizations". As every company is different, we customize most Odoo
Online instances. On SaaS projects, we offer an unlimited
customization service at $80/month: unlimited changes on screens,
reports, workflow, automated actions, access rights, etc. (everything
an expert can do without going into specific developments)

Above 20 users, companies have the budget to afford paying an
implementation project with custom developments. It's much more
expensive as they have to consulting days for requirement analysis,
trainings, custom developments, support, upgrades, etc. But they get a
fully customized solution that perfectly fit their own needs. They can
change the software to fit the way they word today, instead of
adapting themselves to the standard.
