We will give you the reasons to move to Odoo 12

10/11/2018 11:05:29 In Our Blog

Everyone was waiting for Odoo 12 is finally being released in October! Version 12 not only comes with usability updates and new features, but also comes with brand new modules. As a odoo partner, O2b Technologies has received many of these updates. And in our todays blog I am going to share the updates with all of you.

Some of the biggest changes in Version 12 come to the Accounting module, which has been revamped significantly. The new Odoo Accounting makes it easier to use and configure, and also adds new components for accountants, such as the ability to import vendor bills and use OCR.

Other large changes come with a newly introduced Document Management module, to share documents amongst your team, and an IoT (internet of things) module, to manage your IoT devices.

Finally, Odoo now allows multi-website management. This means you can have 2 or more websites with ordering capabilities tied to your ERP backend. This is a huge benefit, especially for eCommerce businesses who want to simplify management of multiple website stores.

Usability

Cohort View : New cohort view to analyze retention or churn rates over time.

Dashboard: Dynamic dashboards with UX inspired by Google Analytics. Dashboards can include any graph, cohort, or KPI.

Configuration Bar: New configuration bar in Sales, eCommerce, Invoicing & Accounting to help users configure the system.

Activities : Support for recurring activities, email templates, and a new view to check all activities at a glance.

Import: Lots of usability and speed improvements including a new interface to import files and import templates. The system learns data mapping to auto-detect columns, and detects data formatting (e.g. dates, floats).

Email Digest: Get KPIs sent by email periodically according to your preferences: new leads, opportunities won, revenues,  cash, tickets closed, open tasks, etc.

Email Template: Harmonize UI and improve the content of the default email templates.

Full Keyboard Support: Press Alt to highlight shortcuts and navigate with the keyboard in forms, list and kanban views.   

Date Filters: Easily filter dates (today, last week, this quarter...) including flexible grouping of data by date (by day, week, months...).

Sharing Links: Easily share access to documents, or the customer portal.

Access Rights: A user is either a portal user,  a public user or an employee with system access.

Right-to-Left: Support for languages that read right to left such as Arabic.

Barcode

Using the Barcode App allows you to process pickings much faster, increasing the worker productivity. Directly scan lot or serial numbers, scan operation types to create new pickings from scratch, and add "take from" or "deliver to specific location" in your warehouse.

New Interface: The User Interface (UI) has been completely revamped for warehouse employees. They can clearly see what they are doing and what they have to do.

Inventory adjustments: When making an inventory adjustment on a specific product, only allow to select that specific product in the inventory adjustment lines.

IoT

Device Connection: The IoT Box allows you to connect any device to your database.

Integration: Odoo integrates IoT technology to your business flows. We don't add extra steps to your work.

Ready Out of the Box: Box configuration is very easy. Even non-technical users can do it!

Hardware: Devices can be connected to the IoT Box using USB, HDMI, Bluetooth or Wifi.

Email Marketing

Outgoing Email Server: Use a specific email server to send mass mailings. It is useful to avoid having the main mail server reported as spam.

Blacklist & Opt-out: Customers can easily opt out from your mailing lists. In the backend, users can also blacklist email addresses so that the customer no longer receives any mass email from your system.

Statistics: You can now see the # of clicks in the measures of the analysis menu of sent emails. New stat buttons on emails to see the leads/opportunities & sales orders they generated.

Plain Text Emails: Write plain text emails that look more personal, with the same easiness than traditional email software.

Mailing Lists: You are now able to merge mailing lists.

UTM Tracking: Complete end-to-end marketing ROI tracking with UTMs on emails, website, leads, opportunities, quotations, sales orders, invoices, and their respective reports.
