Functional Odoo 14

Operating a business in the terms and terminologies of the locality of existence would be beneficial in the company's growth.

A thorough study on the legal aspects as well as the functional aspects of the locality or the state would be an added advantage if done before the start of the operation.

The world is a diverse place. There is even diversity in countries and states, which is basically due to the topology, landscape, people, and traditions. Establishing a single business model for fusion in all the places would lead to catastrophic losses to a company.

A country having 29 different states and associated union territories with it. Establishing a countrywide business model is a difficult aspect of this country. It's said that doing business in India is equal to doing business in 29 different countries. This is mainly because of the variety of cultures, customs, and living standards they bring in. So further a business in India should not only have different models of operation but also a variety of products, which can be custom made for the region-specific needs.
