This question has 2 answers:

1.- What if the company is opnminded and seeing the big picture and the benefit of have all integrated in odoo bring the need to expend some bucks on finish some unfinished/leak of features?

If this is the situation with your customer, they have time, money and patience, then YES use Odoo 9.0 and manage correctly the project.

a.- Revew deeply the original reports.
b.- review deeply the original methids.
c.- Buy enterprise and USE IT, it means, expend some consultancy time with odoo itself in order to be sure you are not missing anything.
d.- Buy consultancy to some expert in the community close to your country that understand verywell your localization.
e.- Try to be flexible, some times customers ask for features "because they simply want it" but the cost simply is not supported by the benefits the feature itself give.

2.- What if your customer is not flexible and simply want everything "done"?

Then, charge licences for community modules, enterprise, your services and some consultants and try odoo8.0 + oca + localizations to have less risks. BUT charge money because you will need to invest in one way or another in finish some leaks on thing found in community at the end, nothing is perfect.

Clarify that they must adapt to the system even if the system is from some point of view incomplete.

We frequently use the option 1, if the cutomer is too closed we try to avoid him because it brings too much stress but there are some of tham that really understand they are in the option 2 and they behave really well.

About conceptually the new accounting:

The new accounting hide the complexity but on this attemp of hide complexity remove important and mature features that were conceptuallly fine, and technically perfect, and now it is dealing with "different" problems than before, problems that are not fixed yet.

Without cloarify specific thing, it is a matter of maturity, and help to migrate some OCA - Custom modules and depracate others in favor of new models, but that's a job that can take at least one more year until the big contributors start to migrate localizations, finish stuff that were readyand so on.

If the company is adaptable and can adjust their process for speacial cases to the normal behavior of Odoo 9.0 you will not face any issue, you can use it today, but with A LOT of creativity.

Regards.

Thanks. Good to know that we are not alone.

We are replacing an SAP system with Odoo. But the new accounting do not give us the feel of enterprise level ERP. It seem to aimed for small shop.

But I also want to hear from both side,  the good side of v9.

Any more comments? Will you use v9 for large organization? In other words, will Accounting department accept it?

WDYT?
