What is Odoo?

Odoo 17: What's new?
Odoo has been completely redesigned. Leave purple, the design will now be a bit cleaner and more intuitive. The main goal wasImprove the overall user experience and provide a more attractive user interface : it has been possible. And intuitive. For example, the keyboard shortcuts for confirm (ALT/CMD+Q) or cancel (ALT/CMD+X) have been made more consistent across all applications.
The point of sale app has undergone big changes this year. Customers can now Order and pay by scanning QR codes with their phone or through a self-service kiosk. The new Kitchen Display app is designed for kitchen staff to help them process every order as efficiently as possible. Menu customization is now much easier.
AI, the new must-have, has found its way into Odoo. ChatGPT (for now) allows you to generate improved variations of your texts in all our applications. If you feel completely stuck, all you need is a good prompt to generate the text from scratch.
Images in WebP format land by default on websites that use the Odoo CMS. Compared to traditional formats like JPEG and PNG, WebP images are much more compressed, resulting in faster page load times, a better visitor experience, and even better SEO rankings.
WhatsApp has been integrated into Odoo : Send order confirmations, shipping details, invoices, payment links, receipts, event or ticket reminders, or personalized messages from the Contacts view. All of this is now possible.
It's not always easy to find your way among Odoo's 70 applications. A new “Industry” module. allows you to choose your area of activity in the library. A selection of related apps are automatically installed and pre-configured with activity feeds and demo data for your industry. This includes an automatically generated website with appropriate templates and text, a selection of demo products from your catalog, custom templates or preconfigured appointment types.
