Your company is growing: orders increase, you are hiring more people, the warehouse is getting bigger. It’s getting harder and harder to keep track of everything through post-its strewn all over the office, or through the large spreadsheet you have so carefully built during the past few months.

Here at MONK Software we strongly believe in collaborative software. Open Source community is something great and so huge that we just want to say thanks to everyone out there who keeps doing great projects/libraries & blog articles. Thanks for sharing!

According to the latest data released by WeAreSocial, 2.8 billion people use social networks at least once month – and almost all of them (2.4 billions) do it from their smartphones. This no longer is a surprise. However, what is mostly disruptive is the change social media are currently experiencing. In no time, stream walls and public posts are running out of fashion.

Though Facebook still tops the list as the most used social platforms, Zuckerberg has clearly put his heart (and wallet) into instant messaging apps.

From the 5th to the 7th of October, some of us were back in Belgium, in the cozy town of Louvain-La-Neuve-Universite,
for the Odoo Experience 2016. It’s the biggest Odoo conference in the world, with more than 2000 attendees of
all kinds, from developers to end-users, wandering their way through the “Aula Magna” building to see as much as possible
of the 150+ talks end events scheduled in these three days of workshops, bussiness cases, tutorials,
good food and plenty of Belgian beer.
