Odoo is giving a run for money to not only it’s fellow opensource implementors but also to big licensed software providers. From the beginning Odoo has understood the basic requirements of businesses/users from the grass-root level and has done a tremendous job by very wisely putting into place the objects and relevant features. This user friendly interface is winning hearts across all the industries.

Keeping up with technological development, Odoo rolls out features at regular intervals in their new version releases. Synconics as an official Odoo partner take up the opportunity to publish cumulative information gathered from various sources. This we feel could be useful for the readers in terms of knowing what are the new proposed features in next roll-out i.e. version 11.

For this version, Odoo has focused most of their efforts on improving the API so it will run faster and be easier for developers to work with. This isn’t to say there’s nothing for the end user though. Odoo has made small changes to many apps to make them more intuitive and more useful. They’ve also introduced global keyboard shortcuts and a global search feature to make navigating Odoo quicker and easier than ever.
