Strategy & SolutionAfter researching for a trusted technology partner, the client teamed up with Flexsin owing to its extensive expertise in ERP implementation. Flexsin carried out a number of workshops for understanding the client's business needs and its operating model. After many hours of collaborative sessions, Flexsin shortlisted Odoo as the ERP of choice. Flexsin even helped the client come up with a smart process flow to enable it to reach more targeted audiences fast.
The client leveraged Flexsin's front-end expertise to make sure Odoo implementation has an intuitive interface. Besides developing a streamlined and easy-to-understand interface, the developers instructed the client's team in using the front-end by organizing multiple training sessions.
