We started working with Martes Specure in spring of 2016. It is a long term project and we are still providing support and maintenance service to their fully working Odoo ERP system. It is a pleasure to have such a long term partnership with Martes Specure and their team. Below you can find our interview with Jozef Svrcek Jr., Director of Martes Specure about Odoo implementation and results.

There were several business areas where we felt a need to have a solid and flexible system in place to support our business, mainly accounting and warehouse management.

Why did you choose Odoo?

We were choosing among several proprietary systems and we also looked at several open source systems including Odoo. We decided to choose Odoo mainly due to the possibility to customise the system easily and independently. We did not see any showstoppers with this approach. Also the initial cost to get started was very favorable.

What vision/goals you’ve had for this project?

We wanted to have a unified, integrated system for our offices in Slovakia and Austria that would contain all the critical business data and information for the management.

How did you start working with Versada? Why did you choose Versada?

We were searching for an Odoo implementation partner since it was clear to us that having an implementation partner would save us a lot of time and effort. We choose Versada based on criteria such as cost-benefit ratio and low risk due to rich experience of Versada in similar projects.

What success metrics have shown you that you had a successful project?

In our main office in Slovakia, the number of users using at least one of the main modules is at 40% compared to the legacy system which was just about 10%. This adds to efficiency and process transparency since the employees have real time access to all key information. The low number of the legacy system usage was down to the inflexibility of the legacy system to accommodate our processes and due to the potential increase in the licensing cost.

  The cooperation fulfilled our expectations. We established a simple, yet effective process on how to deal with issues and our requirements. We primarily use an online ticketing system where we describe requirements in the form of user stories. Occasionally we have online conferences where we discuss our needs and the possible solutions.
