Industrial Taylor – a leading organization in the foodservice industry in Columbia – is using Odoo for their day-to-day operations. Before implementing Odoo, they were using six different applications with six independent servers. The company, with over 250 employees, found it extremely difficult to manage the overall operation, on top of that, the lack of integration and interdepartmental transparency was a major deterrent for them.
Industrial Taylor’s aim for higher growth and further expansion pushed the company to find a better alternative to their existing system. They became interested in Odoo as it offers a comprehensive solution with greater flexibility.
Currently, Industrial Taylor has implemented Odoo CRM, Sales, Purchase, Accounting, Inventory, Email Marketing, and Events, and they are keen to make use of other Odoo applications as the company continues to grow.
