Odoo VS Magento

Using Odoo – Magento Connector

Odoo is a full-fledged ERP and Magento is fully developed E-Commerce Platform. It gives you the power of two worlds. Both have been in market for a long time and have proven their worth across the globe. By using connector, we import orders, invoices from Magento and export them Odoo. From Odoo, we update the stock records, enter products and update invoices.

With the recent updates in the system, high end products such as Bundled Products and Configurable Products can also be synced in 2 systems.

You can make use of PHP Template to design Magento Stores. There are a number of templates available to provide beautiful designs for the same.

The only downside here is the syncing part. At present, connector can sync more than 10,000 orders a day. However, it is not the real time processing. So unless the system is synced, the orders will not be visible in Odoo. Also, the team has to manage 2 systems simultaneously, which is also cumbersome tasks for some.

Using Odoo E-Commerce

In Odoo E-commerce, the upsides are that we have an E-Commerce directly built from the ERP system. So a product will be visible on the store on a click of a button. The data is real time. So if you had the stock updated in physical store, your client knows that it is ready for purchase. The drag and drop features in building of Website brings an easiness to develop websites.

The downsides here are that since Odoo has not fully developed into E-Commerce store, some customizations might be needed to handle various types of products and bring it par with Magento.

Moreover, the templates are written in QWeb templating engine. This sometimes can be an issue while working on a specific requirement.

In usability aspect for backend team, Odoo E-Commerce is more easy to use compared to using connector.

The idea on which platform to choose depends on:

  1. Expected number of orders in a day
  2. List of products and type of products (all the variants are to be counted as separate products)
  3. Features required on web store (such as Payment Gateway integrations, SMS Integration, etc.)
  4. Website design
  5. Features required in the system other than E-Commerce (Accounting, Orders Management, Dispatch, HR, etc.)
