Getting an ERP system is a very big investment so you want to make sure that the system you are getting is suitable for your needs and one way to do that is to try it. In this blog we will show you different ways on how you can try Odoo.
Each method is characterized by the edition and how long your trial data is persisted. One shot means that your data is persisted only for that one session. This is ideal for checking a feature quickly. However, if you need to do some extensive testing then you should opt for those with long data persistence so you can really explore and figure out the right config to fit your process.
