Odoo Freelancer vs Partner

Odoo freelancer

Is it better to hire a freelancer or an Odoo partner for your project?

Odoo development is an aspect of the Odoo ERP that requires precision, care, and expertise. Today, 2,500+ partners worldwide offer Odoo development and configuration services. The concern will be who will be responsible for developing and implementing Odoo. You can choose from certified Odoo partners who are well-trained and expert Odoo developers or from certified Odoo freelancers willing to offer their expert capabilities in developing your Odoo platform. You can also contact non-Odoo-certified developers for your development needs.

How to find an Odoo developer?

It's critical that you select a development partner who can help you build an Odoo platform that meets your company's specific needs, whether you go with an Odoo freelancer or a dedicated Odoo partner. It's difficult to overstate the drawbacks of working with an independent contractor rather than an Odoo partner or certified professional working for a company.

Cons of hiring an Odoo freelancer

Despite the fact that Odoo freelancers tend to charge less than full-time employees, the quality of their platform is likely to be lower because they lack the ability to create complex business processes on the software platform.

  • There is no organisational structure to rely on.
  • No supervision
  • Not available whenever the company needs
  • Operations that have to get paid
  • No assurance of delivery or quality.
  • Not a dedicated method

Price vs. Cost

In the long run, low-cost solutions will add up to a lot of money. The initial cost of more cost-effective solutions is higher, but they are more long-lasting and less expensive in the long run.

Efficiency

Going with cost-effective solutions and modules rather than settling for a cheaper option that doesn't meet your operational needs is always preferable in the long run. Choosing a freelancer to work on your Odoo platform development will be similar.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is an Odoo freelancer? How do they work?

An Odoo freelance developer is someone who can build the entire Odoo platform for you but specialises in the configuration of a limited number of modules. They work without supervision and on a non-time-bound basis to provide you with inefficient Odoo platforms.

Role of an Odoo freelancer

Most Odoo freelance developers say that they can develop the whole Odoo platform based on your business needs, but they aren't able to do so because they aren't efficient and can't cover the whole platform. Even though the initial cost of developing an Odoo platform with a freelance developer will be low, you will run into many functional problems that will add to the cost of maintenance, making it more expensive than solutions from certified Odoo partners.

Why would you want to hire a freelance Odoo developer?

Odoo freelancers may be able to provide you with solutions at a lower cost at first, but this is the only benefit of working with them. Ineffective in operation and prone to errors, these solutions will add to your maintenance costs due to a lack of expertise and thorough monitoring throughout the development process. Finally, the total cost of hiring a freelance Odoo developer will exceed the cost of hiring an Odoo partner for your development requirements.

Why would it be a bad idea to hire an Odoo freelancer?

There are a number of drawbacks to hiring an Odoo freelance developer. Here are a few examples:

  • Platform development will be hindered by a lack of expertise
  • Operations may not be monitored
  • Not time-bound and slow in operation
  • Expensive
  • High maintenance costs
