In this workshop, learn from several OpenERP projects conducted by Audaxis where OpenERP (Odoo) sits as the NEW backoffice of web platforms : from collaborative tasks management in a caritative association, to Magento integration with OpenERP at a mail-order selling player ; from centralized back office at a multi-channel SMB operating in telco, to multi-country backoffice at a pure player delivering HR services... Different situations but same challenge : Which architecture is best? How to optimize integration? How to set up a sustainable solution?
