Odoo vs MS Dynamics NAV

A detailed comparison of leading ERPs for SMEs.

How can SMEs benefit from an ERP solution?

When it comes to maintaining the complex operations of a modern business, the software platform a company chooses to use is one of the most fundamental factors in the success of the business. With SMEs, this choice is particularly critical as limitations in budget and larger competitors translate into a serious need for efficiency and cost-effective design.

With multiple ERP solutions available on the market today, choosing the right one requires considering many factors. For SMEs, one major factor is the choice between local and cloud hosting. A cloud-hosted ERP offers a number of advantages for SMEs over a traditional ERP on a local server. A cloud-based ERP is often more flexible and able to adapt to a growing and constantly changing business model such as that of a small or medium size enterprise. Startup and maintenance costs are also much lower with a cloud-hosted solution because they are frequently included in the license fee.

Features Comparison

The table below demonstrates some of the most important features an ERP solution can offer, divided into ten categories: Sales, Customer Relationship Management, Accounting & Finance, Marketing, Warehouse Management, Manufacturing, Purchasing, Services & Projects, Human Resources and Usability & Productivity. These categories encompass almost everything an SME might need to manage, develop, and evolve its business operations. The comparison will demonstrate the availability of these features with detailed analysis for Odoo vs. MS Dynamics NAV.

Microsoft Dynamics NAV

“ BUSINESS SOLUTIONS TAILORED TO YOUR NEEDS ”

Microsoft offers Microsoft Dynamics NAV (formerly Navision) as part of the Microsoft Dynamics family of ERP software. The software can be hosted in the Microsoft Azure Cloud (for an additional fee). Two licenses are available: a perpetual license and a subscription license to an external service provider.

Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016 is split into two versions: the Starter Pack, which offers basic functions in finance, professional services, and distribution; and the Extended Pack, which adds manufacturing and warehouse management features. The purchase of the Started Pack is required in order to get the Extended Pack. We’ve chosen to use the Extended Pack in Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2016 for the purposes of this comparison.

Implementation Service

For Microsoft Dynamics, the implementation service is usually provided by a local partner. For Odoo Online, implementations are usually provided directly by the vendor. Odoo Enterprise implementations (the on-premise offer of Odoo) are typically performed by a local partner.

The implementation cost of Dynamics is usually case by case and prices differ widely from one project to another. Odoo however has packaged implementation offers (between $2,100 and $5,500 for a standard implementation).

Offers

Most of the offers through MS Dynamics cover one year. Odoo’s default offers are monthly, without commitment, and typically includes a 16% discount with a yearly contract (paying for 10 months instead of 12).

Conclusion

Often SME’s will find they have a software need but are unable to implement one given the high level of overhead and complexity of the task. For growing companies, it is much more optimal to start small in a software solution and add new features little by little as the business expands and evolves. In most practical cases, a flexible and modular approach works best for SME’s as it provides the business with the necessary freedom to adapt to change quickly.

Offers

Business needs will never stop fluctuating, especially in a growing company. Traditional practices for SME’s are now becoming obsolete as more powerful and dynamic solutions become available. Selecting the best option is no longer just about which best suits your business today, but also which is best for your business in the future. Planning for long term success with an easily adaptable software solution can be the key decision in the long-term development and growth of your business.

Choosing the Right Software

Whether you are outgrowing entry-level software or replacing a legacy system, choosing an ERP that is a good fit for your company can have a strong impact on your future growth and profitability. Because the cost of implementing an ERP is so high, demanding a great deal of time and input from employees across your organization as well as potentially significant software licensing and consulting fees, there is tremendous pressure to get it right the first time.

Despite these high stakes, most decision makers selecting and implementing ERP software will not do so more than a few times in their career. The purchasing relationship is therefore tilted in favor of the vendor, with many vendors requiring hours of qualification before revealing crucial details such as features and pricing. When dealing with vendors, it is therefore essential to accurately and completely communicate the needs of your organization to avoid finding out 6 months into implementation that the project isn’t feasible or that an unexpected and expensive custom development is required.

Cloud or On-Premises?

In recent years there has been a trend in business software towards a software as a service (SaaS) model. Most major business software vendors, ERP or otherwise, have begun offering their locally installed products in a cloud-hosted version to provide additional flexibility. When deploying a cloud-based software, there is no need for a local server or other network hardware as data is managed and processed on a secure off-site server which, depending on the size of the deployment, can significantly reduce the initial cost of a system. This can make a cloud solution a better choice for small and medium size businesses with less capital.

Odoo Online

“ GROW YOUR BUSINESS ”

Odoo is an open-core suite of business apps. It is built on a modular structure in which each app covers one business function and each app is installed as needed.

Odoo is available to be installed on-premises as well as in the cloud. Odoo recently released a new version of its manufacturing app suite, adding quality, maintenance, PLM, and expanded mrp and mes functionality. In this document, we will compare the on-premises configuration of the latest release, version 10.

Support and implementation services for the on-premises edition are sold by Odoo certified partners, while support for the SaaS is provided by Odoo Inc. itself. The on-premises edition has thousands of community-developed modules which add or modify functions, allowing a high degree of flexibility. The first-party SaaS only allows the installation of the three-dozen modules officially supported by Odoo Inc.

Microsoft Dynamics AX

“ BUSINESS SOLUTIONS TAILORED TO YOUR NEEDS ”

Microsoft Dynamics AX is most feature-rich of the five products in the Microsoft Dynamics ERP line. AX was originally released as a collaboration between IBM and Daamgard Data as IBM Axatpa in 1998 before being acquired by Microsoft in 2002 and rebranded under its current name.

AX is designed for mid-to-enterprise size businesses operating across multiple locations, countries, or currencies. Dynamics AX has particular strengths in manufacturing and distribution. It is commonly deployed by companies with revenue greater than $50 million annually, though smaller implementations are also possible. It is commonly used by discrete manufacturers, though it is also deployed by process manufacturers and in the retail industry. AX is offered both in the cloud and as an on-premises installation, sold exclusively by value-added resellers. For this comparison, we chose the latest release, AX 2012 R3, in the on-premises configuration.

User Interface

Usability, especially in enterprise software, is an often-overlooked but critically important aspect to consider during the purchasing process. Usability affects the efficiency of users working within the system, the ease with which the software can be implemented, and can reduce the costs associated with user errors. Additionally, users who spend most of their working day using the system will appreciate software that is easy to use. This is especially true for shop floor control systems, as workers there may be in a loud environment, moving quickly, wearing PPE, or otherwise not optimally situated to use a traditional computer interface with a keyboard and mouse. The special design considerations of a shop space or production line must be taken into consideration for any interface used there.

We have selected screenshots of analogous menus within each software to demonstrate the visual elements and interface options for each software in this comparison. While it is difficult to assess software usability with a static image, a rough comparison can be made. The additional information can only aid your analysis.

Conclusion

Many factors must be considered when choosing a manufacturing software. The complexity of the production workflow, the degree to which demand fluctuates, the lead times of production and procurement, the size of the organization, the growth rate of the business, the stockkeeping needs, the complexity of the support operations in a plant. The list, as they say, goes on. You must make the decision based on your own superlative knowledge of your business while working closely with whichever vendor you choose.

Odoo is an open-core suite of business apps. It is built on a modular structure in which each app covers one business function and each app is installed as needed.

Odoo is available to be installed on-premises as well as in the cloud. Odoo recently released a new version of its manufacturing app suite, adding quality, maintenance, PLM, and expanded mrp and mes functionality.

In this document, we will compare the on-premises configuration of the latest release, version 10. Support and implementation services for the on-premises edition are sold by Odoo certified partners, while support for the SaaS is provided by Odoo Inc. itself. The on-premises edition has thousands of community-developed modules which add or modify functions, allowing a high degree of exibility. The first-party SaaS only allows the installation of the three-dozen modules officially supported by Odoo Inc.

SAP Business One

“ THE BEST RUN BUSINESSES RUN SAP ”

SAP, born from the ashes of the Xerox business computing division, is the venerable purveyor of enterprise software, primarily selling built-to-suit solutions for large enterprises. In 2002, SAP made its first foray into the SME market segment with the purchase of what is now SAP Business One (SBO). SBO is the lowest cost ERP offering from SAP, designed to be deployed quickly and with minimal customization.

Business One is designed to cover every business software need of small to midsized businesses, from CRM to Manufacturing deployed either in the cloud our on-premises. SBO is best suited to light manufacturing as it lacks advanced planning and shop floor control features when deployed out-of-the-box. There is a large community of value-added resellers, many of which have developed their own modules to add the missing features needed for more complex manufacturing processes.

User Interface

Usability, especially in enterprise software, is an often-overlooked but critically important aspect to consider during the purchasing process. Usability affects the efficiency of users working within the system, the ease with which the software can be implemented, and can reduce the costs associated with user errors. Additionally, users who spend most of their working day using the system will appreciate software that is easy to use. This is especially true for shop floor control systems, as workers there may be in a loud environment, moving quickly, wearing PPE, or otherwise not optimally situated to use a traditional computer interface with a keyboard and mouse. The special design considerations of a shop space or production line must be taken into consideration for any interface used there.

We have selected screenshots of analogous menus within each software to demonstrate the visual elements and interface options for each software in this comparison. While it is difficult to assess software usability with a static image, a rough comparison can be made. The additional information can only aid your analysis.

Conclusion

Many factors must be considered when choosing a manufacturing software. The complexity of the production workflow, the degree to which demand fluctuates, the lead times of production and procurement, the size of the organization, the growth rate of the business, the stock keeping needs, the complexity of the support operations in a plant. The list, as they say, goes on. You must make the decision based on your own superlative knowledge of your business while working closely with whichever vendor you choose.

Odoo vs NetSuite

A detailed comparison of leading ERPs for SMEs.

How can SMEs benefit from an ERP solution?

When it comes to maintaining the complex operations of a modern business, the software platform a company chooses to use is one of the most fundamental factors in the success of the business. With SMEs, this choice is particularly critical as limitations in budget and larger competitors translate into a serious need for efficiency and cost-effective design.

With multiple ERP solutions available on the market today, choosing the right one requires considering many factors. For SMEs, one major factor is the choice between local and cloud hosting. A cloud-hosted ERP offers a number of advantages for SMEs over a traditional ERP on a local server. A cloud-based ERP is often more flexible and able to adapt to a growing and constantly changing business model such as that of a small or medium size enterprise. Startup and maintenance costs are also much lower with a cloud-hosted solution because they are frequently included in the license fee.

Features Comparison

The table below demonstrates some of the most important features an ERP solution can offer, divided into ten categories: Sales, Customer Relationship Management, Accounting & Finance, Marketing, Warehouse Management, Manufacturing, Purchasing, Services & Projects, Human Resources and Usability & Productivity. These categories encompass almost everything an SME might need to manage, develop, and evolve its business operations. The comparison will demonstrate the availability of these features with detailed analysis for Odoo vs. NetSuite.

Odoo Online

“ GROW YOUR BUSINESS ”

Odoo is an open source software that is available in three versions, two of which are local while the other is hosted in the cloud. More than 7,300 apps are available thanks to the multiple developments made by Odoo S.A. and its community.

NetSuite

“ ONE BUSINESS SOFTWARE SYSTEM CONNECTING FINANCIALS, CUSTOMERS, AND COMMERCE ”

NetSuite is an integrated solution for mid- to enterprise-sized businesses. NetSuite separates its business management software into four products: NetSuite ERP for inventory, supply chain, and financials; NetSuite CRM for sales and marketing; NetSuite Commerce for both web and on-site sales; and NetSuite PSA for project management. The different parts of the system can be purchased separately, which gives some flexibility to the customer.

NetSuite also provides a version of its software for multinational organizations called OneWorld, which offers the four above services with additional features for multinational companies, including managing multiple subsidiaries, multi-currencies, multi-accounting standards, and tax requirements. 

In order to make a fair comparison of the features of each software, we took into account the entire integrated suite of NetSuite products (ERP, CRM, Commerce, and PSA).

Implementation Service

For NetSuite and Odoo Online, implementations are usually provided directly by the vendor. Odoo Enterprise implementations (the on-premise offer of Odoo) are typically performed by a local partner.

The implementation cost of NetSuite is usually case by case and prices differ widely from one project to another. Odoo however has packaged implementation offers (between $2,100 and $5,500 for a standard implementation).

Offers

NetSuite usually sells multi-year contracts, with large discounts for long term contracts (~25% for 3 years). Odoo’s default offers are monthly, without commitment, and typically includes a 16% discount with a yearly contract (paying for 10 months instead of 12).

Business needs will never stop fluctuating, especially in a growing company. Traditional practices for SME’s are now becoming obsolete as more powerful and dynamic solutions become available. Selecting the best option is no longer just about which best suits your business today, but also which is best for your business in the future. Planning for long term success with an easily adaptable software solution can be the key decision in the long-term development and growth of your business.

Conclusion

Often SME’s will find they have a software need but are unable to implement one given the high level of overhead and complexity of the task. For growing companies, it is much more optimal to start small in a software solution and add new features little by little as the business expands and evolves. In most practical cases, a flexible and modular approach works best for SME’s as it provides the business with the necessary freedom to adapt to change quickly.

No more painful integrations.

With 10.000+ apps in, Odoo covers all your business needs in a one-stop solution: no more interfaces between different software required. Odoo apps are perfectly integrated to each other, allowing you to fully automate your business processes.

“We replaced 14 different applications and increased revenues by 10% overnight.”
