Variants are commonly used in the fashion, retail or manufacturing industry where there are different colours, materials or sizes of the same item. This has been a time consuming and difficult task in the past but not anymore... Odoo offers a range of industry-specific functions making it easier for SMEs to run their business and managing product variants (and product configurator) is one of these features.
There are only a few solutions that handles product variants (style, colour, size) in the market, the ability to create different "variants" of an item can be extremely time consuming if you have to create all the different SKUs separately. Imagine having an item which comes in 3 colours and 3 sizes, this already represents 9 SKUs that need to be created in the system. Odoo removes the complexity of handling variants by introducing attributes - you can easily define the possible values of the attributes against the product and the system would automatically create the various combinations available. Of course the example given is a simple one with 2 attributes, but Odoo supports an unlimited number of attributes in order to handle your most complex item configurations.
Once all the SKUs are automatically generated, you have the ability of maintaining them individually: adjust the prices, add pictures, barcodes and manage them on their own individual manner if required. The different SKUs are effectively their own products based on the same "template". Reordering your product variants is made easy through Odoo through the reordering matrix where you can easily specify which ones to order without having to key in one item at a time.
Odoo also comes with an inbuilt product configurator allowing the user (or the client on the e-commerce platform) to configure the product as they are placing the order to facilitate the process.
Odoo offers an innovative way to handle your product variants, making it easy and efficient to maintain your products as well as reordering and selling them. This modern cloud solution comes with a vast range of features allowing you to run your business in a lean and accurate manner.
