Single Sign On to Odoo


What is Odoo?

Odoo is a powerful all in one mangement software, offering a range of business applications. It offers both community open source and enterprise versions with tools like including CRM, website/e-commerce, billing, accounting, manufacturing, warehouse - and project management, and inventory.

This allows admins to embedd Odoo views on their site to give a unified experience to their users and customers.
