The Customer

Expertise-Vision is a French company producing vision based systems for inspecting and gauging. They use hardware and software in order to invent, design and implement turnkey solutions for quality control and process automation.

The Challenge

Expertise-Vision was running an old version of Odoo (named OpenERP at that time). They wanted to upgrade to a system with the same features but which could be updated smoothly. The perimeter of the ERP at that time was narrowed to the following functionalities:

  • Party management
  • Product management
  • Accounting (customer invoices and payments only)
  • Leads and Opportunities
  • Quotations
  • Purchases

The Solution

It was decided that in order to make migrations from Tryton series to Tryton series as smooth as possible the scope of the implementation would tightly follow the scope of the Tryton modules used. Only a few fields were integrated to the Opportunity object to store additional data.

The Implementation

We designed a migration script to import into an unmodified Tryton system the data from the OpenERP instance. The leads and opportunities were transferred to use the Sale Opportunity module.

From the initial list of functionalities the usage of Radical with an authentication plugin for calendar management and the Party Relationship module were added to the list of requirements. The supplier invoices and payments are also handled by the system now.

Results

The migration from OpenERP to Tryton has been a success and was implemented very quickly. Tryton has also demonstrated that it can be used without much customization in order to successfully run a business from the quotation phase through to the payment of invoices.

The implementation of the Purchase and Stock modules has structured the purchasing process and significantly improved the invoice control. Expertise-Vision can now easily view outstanding supplier and customer bills.
