I do not agree.

There are only a few ERP SaaS product on the market and most of them are
very lightweight, not comparable with Odoo. The main one, Netsuite, has
prices that are around $120 per user with extra implementation costs.

Most of the time when we are in competition with Netsuite, we have made
offers that are 1/3 of the Netsuite price.

You can find lightweight SaaS product that just do one or two app. But
if you need something complete, Odoo is very unexpensive for the value.
If you need a serious product (magento, sugarcrm, salesforce, ...) they
are usually more expensive than Odoo for just one app!

Don't forget also that our price includes implementation services! A
deedicated project manager, unlimited support, customization of screens,
... For such a service, it's very unexpensive IMHO.

Is it a weakness? Yes and no.

For very small customers, it is not. They prefer stability, low price,
evolution and super clean usability than extra features. Aside for
integrations (magento, shipping connectors, 3PL, payments providers), we
rarely have a customer we can not implement out-of-the-box.

For bigger customers, they need community modules. That's why we think
it's better to address >20 users with partners (on premise) and  * weakness: pricing may change - as shown in recent history

It's not a weakness for customers as customers will always benefit from
the pricing they signed for. (unless we decrease our price)

No relation since license change only impact on premise customers and
our price is unchanged for on premise customers.
