What is the difference between Odoo Customization and Configuration:
When it comes to making your Odoo ERP system your own assets, there are a lot of terms that can get thrown around, including customization and configuration. Your Odoo ERP implementation partner will expertly collect your business requirements, and then either configure your system to meet these requirements or customize your system to meet your needs.
Many times lot of people get confused with Odoo Configurations vs Odoo Customiztion. Although both are different which we will discuss in this section. There is a huge difference in Customization v/s Odoo Configuration as both works on a different model. Customization includes adding new code in either an existing module of Odoo or creating a new module through coding to meet the needs of the company. Whereas Odoo Configurations include only settings in ERP software to meet the needs of the customer. The time-frame for both varies as Customization requires time whereas configuration can be done in few clicks.
Odoo Customization :
When you customize an Odoo ERP software, you are building functionality that doesn’t currently exist anywhere in the software even either through 3rd party apps. If your Odoo Partner don’t have the capabilities to achieve the customizations you are looking out for then there may be difficulties that will increase your implementation timeline and the desire outcome of a particular Odoo Module.

- Customization is always unique to your company processes.
- Custom Codings are added to meet business requirements
- Can be costly compare to Configurations.
- Requires Time for Planning, Coding as per Odoo Standards, development, Testing, Interlinking with other Modules.

Odoo Configurations is not as tricky compare to customizations because with Configurations you just change the existing functionality without coding. When you are configuring Odoo ERP you are actually building the workflows in a few clicks. Odoo Configuration capabilities are very important part compare to customization. The Odoo vendor must be able to understand the complete level of configurations that can be performed in Odoo. Else, with poor configuration knowledge, the vendor will end up customizing everything in Odoo which will increase the ERP implementation cost as well as timelines of the project.
