Odoo implementation - the technology startup gets an innovative ERP.

watttron GmbH

watttron GmbH is a start-up company founded in 2016. The company is a former spin-off of the Institut für Naturstofftechnik of the Technische Universität Dresden and the Fraunhofer Institut für Verarbeitungsmaschinen und Verpackungstechnik Dresden.

watttron develops, produces and sells an innovative heating system for thermoforming processes. This technology allows various industrial heating processes to be optimized - for example, 30% of material and energy can be saved in the manufacture of plastic packaging.

Before the start of the joint project between watttron GmbH and manaTec GmbH, watttron organised its processes using Excel documents it had created itself. Due to the rapid growth of the company, these Excel documents soon became too large and confusing. Therefore, watttron was looking for a modern and easy-to-use system that would adapt to their processes and grow with their needs.

An elementary aspect at the beginning of the project was the structuring of customer inquiries as well as a comprehensible and transparent customer communication. This was created with the introduction of the Odoo modules CRM and Finance. As a result of this implementation, watttron was able to save an immense amount of time by eliminating the need to maintain Excel documents - while at the same time increasing transparency - and thus drive the company's growth forward. As a result, all other lists kept by the company were checked so that the warehouse and production could be transferred to Odoo in a second step.

The project is not characterized by extensive individual projects, but progress was ensured by continuous further development, workshops and the step-by-step transfer of processes to Odoo. Even after the successful first implementation phase, manaTec is still at watttron's side to support further growth and the professionalization of internal processes. In the next steps the quality management as well as the tracing of serial numbers will be integrated into the Odoo system.
