Hi Guys,

Latency even from South Africa could be very high
Also when you thnk that our average salary is 800USD per month and small businesses average turn over is +/- 20 000€ per annum.

Odoo is making life a lot easier for small businesses in SA.

Once I understand odoo we will contribute in developement and other areas.  I have canned our product which is rning and designed to rather "join" odoo. Once we nderstand this we will try and expand it in to other products as well.  I already posted some question with little response.

WHen I look at odoo as  a new user there are two ways looking at oddo 1 a user 2 developer.

We will for instance have other software we are using interfaced to odoo to make life easier and then the local server ( we host in Cape Town) has very low latency and is the best connection ( due to distance) in SA.

Thbis is my 2 cents.

I believe a good product ( I see people are complaing re bugs) but the current structures etc for us are very nice and good.

We will definitly be very active in the future.

Fabien, Gustavo has made a good question "How far is that from the price level the customer expect?"
I just think, strategically it might be recommended to think about price differenciation across the globe. The Organisation should raise it's GIS awareness at some appropriate future point in time.

​ Stephen, another down point, is the performance of the Odoo stack in some world regions, datacenters might be far away and latency high. I think for South America that's precisely the case​ as backbones to the US are somwhat congested at some business hours. Or do I miss something? - Guess how traffic goes: - second link
As to "So basically I am considering is paying 1000€ worth the hours I would need to run and maintain my own small server..." since the advent of docker and it's impressive ecosystem, you can almost zero out server administration out of your equation, so you would be left with application maintainance. I agree, that this is still considerable extra burdon.
But if you see your role in a little more than just being reseller, like integration services, consultanci, etc - you would have to mess arround there anyways ;) my2cents.

>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.
