As a specialized supplier for some of the aircraft industry's leading companies, Airtec Braids needed an integrated manufacturing sofware solution for their existing ERP System. Also, their former system, AvERP, needed an update, because it no longer fulfilled the specific requirements of the aviation industry.

Airtec Braids chose Odoo because of its open-source nature. Their former system was proprietary software, so the source code was not available and strictly protected. With their new solution, Airtec Braids wanted to be able to customize their software system according to their specific needs.

Customizations were made initially by another Odoo partner, but Airtec Braids realized the project was not on track to meet their goals. They ended up partnering with OBS to complete their custom Odoo implementation. 

When OBS took over the project, it was already at an advanced implementation stage, but we quickly made changes to simplify the work. These changes inlcuded e.g. the configuration of stock-routing and quality management. OBS also convinced Airtec Braids to move their system o the Cloud Platform, because of its distinct advantages, like improving  data access and security, and reducing hosting costs.

For the most part, Odoo's comprehensive standard solution met Airtec Braid`s business needs, making only a few customizations to sale orders and inventory necessary.

Odoo Review

After the new Odoo ERP system was implemented, AIRTEC-BRAIDS was able to digitize their production, plan manufacturing orders more precisely and fulfill the needs of their clients in the aircraft industry more efficiently. In addition to these gains, AIRTEC-BRAIDS was also able to update their certifications.
