Odoo 10 Upgrade for Multi Channel Trading Platform

We use Odoo (aka openERP) on our multi channel trading platform for all purchasing, warehousing, manufacturing, CRM and financial functions. After attending the Odoo10 tour in February. We could see there were significant benefits to using this new version.

  • Improved UI & Stability for business users
  • Improved¬†Point of Sale system
  • Re-write of the Warehouse module (now called Inventory)

So we took the plunge and decided (in consultation with our platform tenants) to upgrade the platform to this new version. Our existing webstore to OpenERP connector did not support Odoo10 so we needed to find a new version.

We choose the Odoo Bridge For Magento (MOB) bridge product from Webkul.com. After installation on the staging environment and initial sync of data with the web storefront, we ran a number of tests to check business processes. A couple of minor issues were resolved by the Webkul support team, very quickly. We then repeated the install on production and all is working well.

For data migration we performed a stock take prior to the change and then used the web store front as the stock master during the transition. The only other data migrated is cost price which has been done using the Odoo export/import functions.
