After comparing the most important modules of Odoo-versions Odoo11 and Odoo13 required to build an ERP system, I can find that with the release of each versions Odoo is increasing its features and its outlook. But they are migrating some of the major modules and reports to their enterprise versions which makes it difficult for companies using Odoo community version. Odoo 11 can still be recommended as strong ERP system for Small or Medium level enterprises.
