    Default Anyone got a P.O.S. app for sale ?

    Hello,

    I've been asked by a local hardware store to investigate solutions for handling counter sales. What they want is to be able to scan an item's barcode or enter a description at the counter and if the customer wishes to purchase, then print out a receipt/invoice. (two copies)

    The business owner already uses Sage Line 50 for customer invoicing/payments and he doesn't see a need to move away from that. He would use the second copy of the sales invoice as manual input to Sage!! I know, but that's what he wants.

    His main concern is being able to see the cost price of an item at the till so he can then offer a discount if required. Currently he has no idea how much something costs him.

    I have A5v7 and am pretty comfortable in using the program, but I just don't have the time now. Does anyone have a variant of this already written, or even partially written that I could complete.

    Thinking ahead, does Alpha interface to Sage ?

    Thanks all...

    Ciaran

    Hi Ciaran,

    I have developed an ePOS app for a retail outlet.
    However their are many commercial apps available which are very competitevly priced eg. http://www.mamut.com/uk/myob/retailbasics/

    Also their is no odbc driver available for sage line 50 which will allow you to
    integrate alpha with sage. You can only import and export data (transactions etc) as csv files.

    Regards

    Hello Ciaran,

    I happen to have an A5 example of an application for a Mexican restaurant. It can be used for almost anything and is a good example. I don't know if it is still available on the message board but I happen to know where about it is on one of my computers. So if you like to have that sample I can send it to you tomorrow. (it is already around midnight over here in Holland)

    Best regards,
