Point of Sale Software

Postby Notsonoble » 04 Feb 2014 14:36

Has anyone looked into P.o.S software for BO (or maybe BE). I was looking at Lemon yesterday for a friend but I'm hoping to find users with good/bad luck to speak up.

Dolibarr: Point of Sale Software

Postby Cigam » 05 Feb 2014 11:06

Personally I dont care for Lemon, its ok and works good, OpenBravo works good too but they have a for paid version. I had tried before but have not had success yet using Dolibarr on SolydK yet. I have enjoyed it in the past: http://www.dolibarr.org/ I would really love to see Dolibarr more up to date and included in the Back Office version. :) What do you think?

list of what it can do : http://sourceforge.net/projects/dolibarr/
WHAT DOLIBARR CAN DO
Main modules/features:

Customers, Prospects or Suppliers directory.
Products and services catalog.
Bank accounts management.
Orders management.
Commercial proposals management.
Contracts management.
Invoices management.
Payments management.
Standing orders management.
Stock management.
Shipping management.
PDF or ODT generation for invoice, proposals, orders...
Agenda with ical,vcal export for third tools integration.
EDM (Electronic Document Management).
Foundations members management.
Employee's holidays management.
Mass Emailing.
Realize surveys.
Point of Sale.

Other modules:

Bookmarks management.
Donations management.
Reporting.
Data export/import.
Third parties or products categories.
LDAP connectivity.
ClickToDial integration.
RSS integration.
Can be extended with a lot of other external modules available onto DoliStore.com.

Miscellaneous:

Multi-user, with several permissions levels for each feature.
Very user friendly and easy to use.
Highly customizable: Enable only modules you need, user personalized fields, choose your skin, several menu managers (can be used by internal users as a back-office with a particular menu, or by external users as a front-office with another one).
Works with PHP 5.2.1, MySql 4.1 or PostgreSQL 8.1.
Compatible with all Cloud solutions that match MySql, PHP or PostgreSQL prerequisites.
An easy to understand, maintain and code interfaces with your own system information (PHP with no heavy frameworks, trigger and hook architecture).
Support countries specific features: Spanish Tax RE and ISPF. French NPR VAT rate (VAT called "Non Perçue Récupérable" for DOM-TOM). Canadian double taxes (federal/province) and other countries using cumulative VAT. Tunisian tax stamp.
Compatible with European directives (2006/112/CE ... 2010/45/UE) (http://europa.eu/legislation_summaries/ ... 057_en.htm) ...

WHAT DOLIBARR CAN'T DO YET (TODO LIST)

This is features that Dolibarr does not support completely yet:

No double party accountancy (only bank and treasury management).
Dolibarr manage one currency at once (mono-currency).
Dolibarr manage one master activity (mono-company). If you want to manage several companies or foundations, you must install several time the software (on same server or not). Another solution is to extend Dolibarr with the addon Module MultiCompany that allows to manage several companies in one Dolibarr instance (one database but with a logical isolation of datas).
Tasks on module project can't have dependencies between each other.
Dolibarr does not contains Payroll module.
Dolibarr does not include any Webmail.
Dolibarr can't do coffee (not yet).

I messed around with their online demo for a bit. The PoS module seems to be either broken or not available in the demo.
I'm looking for a cash register suite for a micro business (you can't really call a 6 man team "small" anymore). I'm trying to get them off quickbooks pos so they don't need two $1200 licenses to have their inventory DB on the pc in the back (as oppose to the crappy laptop at the store front).

I need to be able to show them a easy to learn and adjust to software to convince the guy that this move would be worth the trouble.

Looks interesting. Unfortunately they don't have a deb file to add to our repository, and I couldn't find the sources to make my own.
