Founded in 2016, Baraja is a trailblazing start-up that invented Spectrum-Scan™ LiDAR, a new model of LiDAR (light detection and ranging) technology for self-driving cars. The pioneering company’s founders, Federico Collarte and Cibby Pulikkaseril leveraged simple laws of physics (refraction of light on a glass prism) and revolutionized the autonomous vehicles industry by solving long-existing problems of conventional LiDARs; costs, safety, and scalability. They ingeniously integrated components from the automotive and telecommunications supply chain and became one of the few LiDAR producers in the world that commit to stringent quality control, reliability, and capability for mass production.
Baraja is currently growing offices in Sydney, Shanghai, and Silicon Valley, and foresees to touch base across the world.
Exponential Growth with Odoo
Baraja adopted Odoo as the central engine of its system with two simple aims, to improve operational efficiency and to attain a clear and consistent 360-degree view of its business processes. Federico and Cibby invested all major resources in Odoo as they highly valued the software compatibility and flexibility with their unique business model. Baraja powered itself with a quick-start success pack and smoothly systemized its operations in two short months with solid implementation and tailor-made customizations (Purchase, Inventory, Manufacturing, PLM, Sales, Invoicing, Accounting, and Studio). With relentless determination, the company became a successful example of exponential growth by expanding from 9 to 96 employees in just two years!
“We chose Odoo because of its open-source principle. One of our values is to build a machine that builds the machine. Odoo allows us to add modules as we grow, and meet all our needs instead of having to adopt different software solutions.”
Federico Collarte, Co-founder and CEO at Baraja
Building Successful Partnerships
An All-inclusive Solution
Since Odoo is an open-source software, Baraja was able to make customizations and solve a wide scope of business-specific problems; inventory, purchasing, invoicing and especially manufacturing.
“Every minute matters in manufacturing, and so far we were able to save a significant amount of time and costs that we couldn’t have been possible without Odoo.”
