Odoo has taken the #1 spot on the list of “The 20 Most Popular Enterprise Resource Planning Software.”

The list, created by software review and comparison company Capterra, takes a look at 20 different ERP software and compares them on categories such as # customers (40% of total score), # users (40%), and social score (20%). The social score is based on the number of customer reviews on the Capterra website along with the number of followers the participants have on Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn.

Odoo came in first place as the most popular ERP software, with Microsoft Dynamics, Sage 100, and NetSuite following afterwards.

While Odoo’s social following was lower than that of its top competitors, its number of users and number of customers were well above. According to the report, Odoo has over 4,000,000 users and slightly over 260,000 customers.

Meanwhile, Microsoft Dynamics has approximately 190,000 customers, Sage 100 has approximately 100,000, and NetSuite has approximately 40,000.

  1. Odoo – 267,626 customers
  2. Dynamics – 190,500 customers
  3. Sage 100 – 100,000 customers
  4. NetSuite – 40,000 customers
  5. Infor ERP – 25,000 customers

Odoo is a powerful open-source ERP platform, used by small to medium-size businesses as well as larger ones. The software has a modular architecture, with applications including everything from Accounting, CRM, eCommerce, and Sales to Manufacturing, Inventory, Purchasing, and more. The applications work in an integrated manner, with sales orders being able to directly generate invoices, send this information to accounting, and so on.

One of Odoo’s largest advantages over its competitors is its flexibility and customizability. While it supports best practices, the open source software can also be configured and customized for a company’s unique needs.

Odoo was started by Founder & CEO Fabien Pinckaers in 2005 as “TinyERP.” Since then, it has grown into a widely used software with millions of users. Its latest version, Odoo 12, is nothing short of amazing, with cutting-edge features such as IoT integration, IP-address lead generation, and more.

One of Pinckaers’ goals back when he started Odoo was to create a product that led the ERP industry. With the software’s #1 placement on Capterra’s list of the most popular ERP software, it looks like he is accomplishing just that. Odoo has a bright future ahead!
