Proud Sponsor

SSI is proud to be a sponsor of the Odoo Community Association.

The Odoo Community Association, or OCA, is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to promote the widespread use of Odoo and to support the collaborative development of Odoo features.

Among the many reason's to choose Odoo for your business, maybe the best one is the ability to customize it for your specific needs.

Examples of Our Work:

Commission Calculation

Scenario: 

The customer provided SSI with specific calculations required based on the product categories. The process of collecting this information and disbursing payment to sales reps was nearly a full time job.

Customization:

  • SSI created a sales report that instantly provided the accounting staff with the relevant commission data for each sales rep by period.

  • No further excel work or additional hours are required.

Industrial Storage & Billing

Scenario: 

Our customer stores industrial equipment for their customers in multiple warehouses that require monthly maintenance requests and monitoring. Should the customer experience a failure of in-service equipment they will request expedited delivery of their equipment from the storage facility. On a monthly, quarterly, or annual basis each storage customer needs to be invoiced on a square footage basis for the equipment held in storage.

Customization:

  • SSI created a link between the base Odoo equipment module and the subscription module.

  • Within the equipment module users can place equipment in and out of storage and note the rate, square footage, and effective dates for billing purposes.

  • Each month Odoo generates maintenance requests so the staff inspects and verifies the location of the equipment.

  • The subscription module evaluates the in / out dates of the equipment and automates billing details for the customer.

Payment Processing

Scenario: 

Our customer had a requirement to process with a payment acquirer not already integrated with Odoo.

Customization:

  • Created a new Payment Acquirer module to meet the customer needs. 

Quick Shop (eCommerce)

Scenario: 

The customer has a large volume of repeat buyers on their website who know exactly what they want to order based on known product numbers.

Customization:

  • SSI created an enhancement to the Odoo e-commerce platform that allows a shopper to drop down a tile on the homepage and quickly add items by part number directly to their cart.

  • The user does not have to navigate through any search boxes, categories, or pages product pages to enter an order.

Order Approval

Scenario: 

The customer has e-commerce users that require approval by their supervisors before purchases can be processed on their website. Purchases are placed by PO.

Customization:

  • SSI created an enhancement to the Odoo e-commerce platform that allows a shopper to save a cart and submit it to their manager to approve the purchase amount.

  • The manager is provided a list of carts for their users and can process them upon approval.

Job Shop Module

Scenario: 

The customer manages roughly 100 unique jobs each month. The jobs are managed through a series of work orders and manufacturing orders within the Odoo manufacturing module. 

Customization:

SSI integrated the time keeping of the jobs with the Odoo kiosk. Time entries are captured daily and WIP entries are created for labor costing.

  • Material can be consumed on sale orders and enter the WIP of the job.
  • Maintenance requests can process logistic moves for the job module.

Custom API Integration

Scenario: 

The customer has data about their jobs held in other, specialized databases. Portions of that data need to be made available in real-time to the users in Odoo.

Customization:

  • SSI created an API hook to pass data back and forth upon pre-defined triggers in each system. 

  • All data is real-time between each system and available from both sides of the transaction.

PDF Merge

Scenario: 

Our customer has a need to provide their prospects with documents that are created outside of Odoo for product specifications. Instead of sending the customer two (or more) attachments as part of a quotation proposal we allow the user to send only one attachment to their customers

Customization:

  • New file storage buttons were created in the Sale Order module.

  • When the files are uploaded the user can select an option to share the files with customers.

  • When sending the quotation PDF, SSI merges the additional documents with the Odoo generated quotation for a single attachment.

Non-Stock Products Workflow

Scenario: 

Our customer runs a make to order manufacturing operation. Depending on the specific job requirements the staff will have to order one time use products specifically for a job. The costs need to be meticulously tracked and flow through proper FIFO accounting standards as well as enter a WIP account upon use in the shop.

Customization:

  • SSI enhanced the default Odoo product configurator to allow for the creation of one time use products. 

  • Users are given a list of product templates from which to copy

  • From within the sale order, users can define key product identifiers, sale price, vendor cost, vendor to buy from, and the product category.

  • Products created are archived periodically per the customer's requirement that they be only "temporary" products.
