Print scenarios

Besides that you can print manually (just by clicking on a button), you can dramatically reduce your routine with automatic print scenarios. It means that printing can be done automatically after triggering some action. You can define any scenario you wish based on the built in examples, or even use them. The module includes the most common print scenarios such as:

  • Print Delivery Slip on Picking Status becomes Ready
  • Print Delivery Slip for all outgoing transfers (after validation)
  • Print Delivery Slip after Delivery Order Confirmation for backorder (created after Transfer validation)
  • Print Delivery Slip only for UPS Delivery Carrier (after validation)
  • Print Delivery Slip only for Customers from Netherlands (after validation)
  • Print All Packages after Delivery Order is Validated
  • Print product labels for validated transfer
  • Print document on Sales Order (after confirmation)
  • Print document on Purchase Order (after confirmation)
  • Print Picking Document after Sales Order Validation
  • Print Picking Document after Purchase Order Validation
  • Print single product label when processing Incoming Shipment. (Print single product label on Transfer (real time))
  • Print lot labels when processing Incoming Shipment. (Print single lot label on Transfer (real time))
  • Print Package on Put in Pack for Internal Pickings
  • Print Customer Invoice after Validation

Compatibility

Supported

  • Odoo Community and Enterprise
  • Installed locally, externally or on Odoo.sh
  • 99% of printers and scales (https://www.printnode.com/en/docs/supported-printers)
  • All VentorTech products (Ventor app, VentorTech Connectors, etc.)
  • 3rd party Odoo apps developed according to Odoo standards
  • Easy scalable – no functional or performance limitations based on number of prints (your business size)

Not supported

  • Fiscal printers
  • POS

    Due to the design of the POS in Odoo (it is designed to work offline and receipts are generated on frontend and not backend), this module is not supporting printing for POS yet

Print service

Our software uses printnode.com as a printing service. This is a paid service with a monthly subscription. We built the printnode.com subscriptions into our module so it’s plug & play software. Subscription plans are the same both on print.ventor.tech and printnode.com. We are the only officially recognized software for Odoo by printnode.com - https://www.printnode.com/en/docs/plugins-and-libraries


Our quality standards

Provided that we had to fix many code quality issues related to a variety of connectors presented on the Odoo market (Ebay, Amazon, USPS, FedEx, Shopify, WooCommerce, UPS, Quickbooks, custom connectors, etc.) and it wasted the nerves of our customers, testers, and developers, we developed our own quality standards.

Typical issues that clients faсed using other connectors / bridges:

  • Impossibility to scale functionality together with business growth
    Most solutions are OK when you have an Odoo standard with no or very few customizations. But functionality breaks in a real production environment for different reasons, even if you make a simple change (e.g., some orders are not synchronized, prices for products are not synchronized, etc.);
  • Stability
    When even simple change had been made in Odoo (e.g., adding a barcode to a product), total instability occurrences increased (e.g., for some reason, orders stopped coming or product prices stopped syncing).
  • Need to pay the vendor for extending / fixes. And even this did not always help
    Our customers tried to make their connectors work at a level of at least acceptably "stable" and bought hundreds of service hours from vendors. It’s reasonable to pay the code authors, as they should know their own apps, right? Unfortunately, the changes were still not working and this lowered their margin. They spent money with the vendors and then had to spend it again to fix it all with us, because situations had already become critical.
  • Alerts about errors
    When connectors had stopped syncing orders or prices, our clients learned about this only after a few days or months of sync failure, when they received customer calls about not delivered orders, or when they started analyzing margin and understood that they were selling with a resulting negative margin!

We have been fixing these problems and similar ones in different connectors and other modules. Such occurrences would not present a good situation for you, because you already purchased the module and everything is supposed to be working. And it’s not good for us, because instead of delivering features that bring benefit quickly, we have to fix something that you think is working.

Cheap solutions sound attractive, but we have already integrated Shopify, PrestaShop, Magento 1, Magento 2, WooCommerce, QuickBooks, and we know – these connectors cannot be cheap! It is not only about connectors, but about analyzing catalogs, making decisions about variants and product templates, figuring out what attributes should be synced from Odoo, and deciding on what should be edited directly on the e-commerce side only... and many other less-than-obvious factors.

Odoo is like a LEGO construction; it has many bricks. If looking at bricks separately, they seem to work fine. But everybody likes LEGOs because of the final "solution". And combining them depends on the quality of each brick. This is why we at VentorTech deliver only high-quality products that can be easily integrated with other products, and our solutions don’t block you while scaling and growing. It seems to be expensive initially but saves you a lot of investments and headaches in the future.
