Disorganization is the origin of chaos in any company. It is impossible to evolve and make future projections when each area of the business is managed irregularly from different independent platforms, without any kind of integration with each other to streamline the flow of data in the team.
At this stage of the game, many companies still manage all the registration of their customers and contacts from a platform, different from the one they use to monitor the inventory of products or different from the software they use to receive and attend to the incidents of the end-users.
This type of scenario is anything but productive, since at the time of processing a purchase or meeting a customer request, the agent takes a long time to get that data that he needs by jumping from one software to another.
For that reason, there are platforms like Odoo's, to completely transform the business flow of current businesses. What is Odoo? Well, it is an ERP (Enterprise resource planning) software composed of different modules that allow you to manage all the areas that make up a company from the same place. It is a way to have at hand all the data that the work team of a company needs, whether it is in accounting, sales or marketing.

Customer service is essential, that is why this ERP Odoo integrates this module to its platform, configured to monitor, prioritize and resolve all incidents reported by customers.
