Southern Africa Master Distributors (Pty) LtdSAMD imports, sells and maintains petrol garage forecourt equipment. The business uses Odoo as their ERP system, for accounting, purchasing, manufacturing, debtors, creditors, sales and stock.
Mirela McGowan, CFO says, “We choose Odoo because of its flexibility and the price is good for what you get. You can buy different modules and use what you need. You don’t need to buy a big system or modules that you’re not using.”
“As CFO, I am loving the system. The flexibility in terms of finding data and reporting is logical and simple. You don’t need fancy execution codes. I have worked on JDA and SAP before and this is so much more intuitive. It’s logical and it makes sense. I can generate any report I need and I can analyse data, and I can do it myself. I don’t need a developer to help me. For a smaller business it works well,” she says.
“As a manager Odoo provides transparency so you can easily see what’s happening in the business. It’s just so simple to use.”
