B. Out-of-the-box Configuration
The out-of-the-box solution propose to customer a start with Odoo on the main modules by using a standard database and optimizing the existing options to match at the best the customer specifications.
It does not correspond to a classic integration with gap analysis / quotation for customization and configuration / training / test phase / production phase.
The advantage of the out-of-the-box solution is to be quickly ready for production at a very limited cost thanks to the use of a standard database. And it will be still possible to improve the system in future with development of modules which are high added-value for the customer.
The main drawback is that the customer has to adapt to Odoo process and not the opposite. For info, sales / purchase / accounting Odoo processes usually match well the customer processes. For warehouse and production, processes are less standard and it does not always match to the customer requirements.
