Re: Question on enterprise licensing and barcodes

The feedback I received from a chat session on odoo and from some partners is it looks like if I want to give basic lead management to my independent sales reps I'm looking at full price of $300/yr/user, so most likely Enterprise edition is out for me. I have a call tomorrow with an Odoo rep but it's not looking promising at this point. Looks like sales leads aren't considered portal functionality unless they are read only. 

One of the things I like about Enterprise was plaid integration. I actually built my own integration with Plaid about 18 months ago but ended up abandoning it, too many projects. My bank, Wells Fargo, only offers csv files for bank statements but it looks like community edition only imports OFX files. I've looked and can't find any modules for importing csv like there was in v7. Suggestions? 

Has anyone built any barcode functionality for v9 community? What I've built in v7 looks like it reproduces all functionality in v9 enterprise plus what's on the agenda for v10. I could AGPL to OCA if they're interested in co-developing or I could port myself under LGPL and charge for it. Anyone have any interest either way? 

I originally built the mobile side in early Odoo mobile framework but had a bad experience with it, long story. Redeveloped it in Unity3D because I had a solid developer and experience myself in it but the barcode scanning was slow because of the library used. I'm in the middle of porting it to Xamarin as I can re-use C# code from Unity, it's cross platform (iOS and Android with one code base) and I can use a barcode SDK from Scandit that is almost instant. 

v9 is still xmlrpc, right? No REST support yet? Is that just being talked about for v10?

Hello Chris,

Please refer to this thread of mail.

There Fabien specifically specified that you have to only pay for active users on system only not the portal or inactive users.

Do I have to pay $300/yr for my sales reps that only need to track some leads? This would be self-hosted. If so, that's a complete deal breaker for me. For $20k/yr total I would end up with no more CRM functionality than I have now, even if I could afford it. 
I strongly recommend you talk with an odoo represetative, they will help you better. or....

Pay for the minimal of users you need, then try properly the setting and then check how work with them as portal users... I do not know your case honestly but I have 400 portal users in our database and we pay only for our employees.
