There are companies who still prefer using old version and then spend money on customizing each and every module.

A Fact Check from Globalteckz Experience

As per our Experiences we are working with Odoo since 2009 when OpenERP version 5 then OpenERP 6, 6.1 got released every latest version of Odoo brings up new features for example in version 5 the User interface was not that sober and the modules were limited but the workflows and drilling down of each task was very easy that was something which was removed in OpenERP 6 and 6.1. Further OpenERP 7 way back in the year 2011 came up with new User interface and more modules which was contributed by the community members. OpenERP Became Odoo with $10 Million in Funding and POS feature was added that was not available in the older version.

In later version website builder, subscription and other necessary apps were added.  Stating our above experience it clearly showcases that every new version of Odoo provided good and advance functionalities which is most needed by any ERP user. Therefore keeping old version and module may not be feasible for long term growth.
