Presien's AI Safety Systems Construction Empowered by Odoo

About Presien

Presien, a spin-off from Laing O'Rourke founded in 2020, aims to enhance safety and productivity in heavy industries through their AL safety system called Blindsight. This innovative system utilises integrated hardware and software to detect objects and potential hazards in blind spots, sending real-time alerts to prevent accidents.

Challenges and Goals

When Presien started as an independent company, it needed a comprehensive solution for its business operations. They explored various software options but struggled to find an integrated solution that aligned with their needs. 

Traditional enterprise ERPs were costly and time-consuming for a startup. Eventually, based on a recommendation from another hardware/software startup, Presien chose Odoo as their central engine to manage core business processes.

How Presien has constructed AI Safety Systems with Odoo

Presien achieved a smooth implementation and quick data migration with Havi Technology. Odoo's modular platform enabled Presien to address specific business challenges with the following modules:

  • Odoo Purchase, Inventory, and Invoicing: The purchasing management process significantly improved with Odoo's Purchase, Inventory, and Invoicing apps. Presien's purchasing team saved time on administrative tasks like scanning, recording, and evaluating stocks. Automation streamlined supplier communications, making everyday tasks more efficient

  • Odoo Manufacturing: As a technology manufacturing company, Presien relies on technical and time efficiency. With each software update, their experience with Odoo has improved, allowing for faster and more fluid processes. Manufacturing orders are synced in real-time, helping to eliminate the need for additional workarounds, and teams now communicate seamlessly within a single integrated system

  • Odoo CRM and Sales: This helps Presien foster customer relationships and streamline sales processes.

The seamless integration of these apps on a single database reduced manual data entry, ensured data accuracy, and facilitated timely information exchange across departments. Presien found value in using an ERP system with a small team, eliminating the need for internal IT or development resources. They also benefited from the flexibility of customising their Odoo database according to unique requirements.
