It’s A Match!
After spending years working with various ERPs, Sergey Ginko, CEO of ICode, decided it was time to find a new system that fit all the market requirements. Mainly because their previous systems never seemed to work as well as they should have.
After carrying out in-depth analysis, Sergey came across Odoo, and found it to be a system that would meet the needs of enterprises in a way previous systems were unable to do. In addition, Odoo has no restrictions and endless possibilities for customization. ICode saw this as a great opportunity to expand the capabilities and skills of their developers, as well as give space for the team to work on something new.
Since 2017, ICode has rapidly grown with Odoo. They are now an official Odoo Partner in Belarus and Russia, and in just three years, the company’s staff has quadrupled. So far, ICode has completed 17 implementations and continues to strive towards providing technological solutions to make businesses more efficient.
ICode not only delivers Odoo as a solution to clients, they also use it internally. With the Website app, they were able to create their very own website within a short amount of time.
Daily, the company uses: Projects, Invoices, CRM, Hiring, Employees, Accounting, Expenses, Email Marketing, eLearning, Timesheets, and Day Off. Since all applications are integrated, ICode’s work speed is significantly increased, allowing them to focus more on clients.
Implementing Odoo with ICode
A typical implementation takes between 6-24 months, depending on the size of the business. Each Odoo implementation consists of the following steps: requirements collection, analysis, architecture development, development, testing, implementation, and support.
When beginning a project, the company examines all factors that may influence the outcome, such as: incoming and outgoing data flows, data duplications, and so on. After conducting a comprehensive review, they analyze which processes could be reduced (or eliminated) after automation. This helps cut expenses and increase efficiency for customers.
ICode’s first Odoo implementation was a huge project, which led to the creation of a TMS (Transport Management System) application, based in Odoo. With this new system, the client was able to:
Manage documents for cargo transportation by the road;
Develop and implement the document exchange functionality within the system;
Develop a factoring functionality and conduct accounting entries in double-entry mode;
Preliminary calculation of the cost of transportation and maintain control of transportation in real-time.
"Production Automation" is the most frequent request to ICode. Companies looking to automate production often have a multitude of processes that are closely interlinked, and Odoo takes this into account. All the nuances of Odoo help companies complete tasks in a more efficient manner, which is what clients value the most.
For ICode, Odoo has many advantages that set it apart from the previous systems they used. One of those advantages is Odoo’s speed and flexibility. The software can be adjusted to any processes built by the client and any missing functions can be developed. The open-source system removes restrictions on developments. The second advantage ICode found is that Odoo works best on Linux servers, which provides high security for business and reduces infrastructure costs.
All in all, Odoo is a powerful platform to create new business applications, and for clients, Odoo is an all-in-one software that is easy-to-use, thanks to its intuitive interface. In addition, Odoo eliminated multiple issues they faced before, with their one-of-a-kind centralized database for businesses.
Typically, a website and an online store are written in WordPress or Bitrix, accounting - in 1C, and so on. Diverse solutions do not lead to harmony, but instead, increase maintenance costs. At ICode, they strive to make business processes easier by combining several systems in one. Thanks to Odoo, they are now able to do this.
ICode is a company specializing in the development of integrated management solutions for businesses of any size and scope. The company is one of the few providing services in the automation of business processes using Odoo in Belarus and Russia. ICode clients are small, medium, and large businesses from Belarus, Russia, the EU, and the USA. ICode employees have backgrounds and expertise in a variety of different spheres of business.
Their goal is not only to introduce Odoo, but to also help clients optimize their business processes. That’s why their customers trust them and collaboration is always efficient.
