Odoo - Website Builder


Pros: Do not require Backend Developers or a different server (Odoo Server and Odoo Support to be used)
Cons: Third-party App is required for bookings/appointments and the data would be saved within Third-party App, which is supported by Odoo.


Pros: A wide selection of themes are available, including options to create live chat & discussion forums
Cons: Comparatively a limitation for design options within pages as the design would have to be as per the themes available. However, within a theme there are multiple layout options as well. Additionally, theme layouts are available at an additional cost, depending on the required theme.


Pros: If additional features are required in the website, third-party apps would be purchased by making a one-time payment only.
Cons: Odoo website Module has a monthly/ yearly subscription amount (approx. $ 16/ per month)

Building a Website from Scratch


Pros: Desired functionality and layout as per the website plan
Cons: Backend Developers are required to build and integrate all features, including bookings, forms & even minor updates. This development process could be consume time (minimum of three months up to one year, depending on the website features and experience of the Website Developer)


Pros: Freedom of Design
Cons: Requires a development plan and logical layout for the entire website


Cons: Comparatively more costly to develop a website from scratch. Additionally, site hosting charges are applicable.

Developing a website through both the above mentioned options could be beneficial depending on the nature of the business. As per our expertise, Odoo Website Builder, would be highly effective for service-based and retail businesses. Multiple theme and template options are available to select from and customize the website as per your requirements.
