What was the challenge
Prior to implementing Odoo, Quint was using a variety of applications for CRM, project management and finance. Previous software used include .NET application, Microsoft Dynamics CRM and a custom (in-house) developed software. With its various applications, Quint was operating on a scattered landscape. There was limited to no integration between all the different applications which resulted in double work and limited visibility on Quint’s entire operational flows. Furthermore, due to the inflexibility of the applications, the company was unable to add its specific desire functions resulting in the inability to run the business how they wanted to run it.
Why choose Odoo
The scattered landscape and inflexibility of the applications left Quint searching for a new software system. Following personal research into ERP softwares on the market, Quint came across Odoo. What initially persuaded Quint to use Odoo was the ease of customisation to the company’s needs, the roadmap of the platform and the developer community.
“Odoo helps to run a data-driven marketing operation with a great positive impact on our lead-to-deal ratio.”
- Jeroen Raijmakers, head of marketing
" With Odoo it is easier than ever before to analyse our data and link different aspects of our operations which helps us in defining and finetuning our strategy."
Jeroen Brink, Finance Director Quint
CRM and Sales
How did we tackle the project
Using an agile approach and with the help of B-informed, Quint implemented the following Odoo Apps; Contacts, Sales, Project, Timesheets, Accounting, Employees and Leaves. These specific apps were implemented because Quint places a strong focus on their people and clients, so intuitively, it was a priority that the Odoo systemwas first used to support these processes.
Once the core was implemented, Quint found it made sense to add extensions to the platform that further enhanced their client service. Following the successful implementation of the first set of apps, Quint implemented CRM, Events, Documents and Sign using the one-app-at-a-time approach.
How did the collaboration with B-informed go
With a joint team, Quint and B-informed implemented Odoo using an Agile approach. First focused on the core processes. After go-live, the Agile team didn't break up. In a close collaboration, additional functionality has been added continuously and the team still implements improvements that help to optimize our business.
What has Odoo contributed
Quint has found Odoo easy to use without having to read large manuals. Thanks to Odoo, they are now able to run the business in the way they want with their specific desired functionalities.

By having this, they are able to steer more proactively resulting in less overruns. Training logistics are handled and fully automated by Odoo. Trainees get their training information and materials at set times prior to the training event. This has reduced office workload and improved customer satisfaction.
At any place, anytime and on any device, Quint has instant access to their core software. By having all core operations handled in Odoo, Quint has managed to improve its efficiency and ability to connect. They are now able to implement a system with tighter controls without losing flexibility. Odoo enables just that. The consultancy industry is one that changes rapidly.
