POS (Point of Sale), Cash Registers

Is anyone involved in doing POS (Point of Sale) applications using POS Cash Registers,Internet, PHP, and MySQL? I would like to know what is being done in this arena. Please post here, or visit my profile here and view my AIM (AOL Instant Messanger ID, which is also a valid email address) and my ICQ # and contact me. The companies which I am familiar with currently, who sell POS cash registers have a very expensive proprietary software agreement, and if you use them for a number of installations, then you have no way to sever your relationship, since they have total rights to the software which makes the POS system work from the cash register side. I am certain there must be alternatives which are more in public domain, in the spirit of Linux, Apache, PHP and MySQL. The other issue is that the software on the server side of things, by a different vendor/consultant, is in Liant Cobol, in a proprietary database. The data is being held "captive", since the end user cannot do simple queries, as one could do were the data in a SQL database. If such POS alternatives are NOT currently available, then I see it as an opportunity for someone to develop an alternative to such propietary solutions.

Thanks!

I don't know, but using PHP, MySQL, Javascript, and a web browser, one could create an inexpensive POS system.
Interesting idea.
I've wanted to do something like that before, but just don't have the time.
You might want to look at http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/20629.

Hi

I have developed an open source POS system for a single user at www.proffittcenter.free-online.co.uk . This was based on C++ Builder and local Paradox database. I have started work on replicating this for multiple users again using Builder but with MySQL database. Still quite a lot of work to do.

Now, in 2007, perhaps time to update my development plans. I abandoned plans for using C++/MySQL. Current program under development is entirely Java/MySQL.

As a further update, I have made considerable progress and am now looking at a September, 2007 release date. For further information visit the site - no loger at free-online - just substitute .org

Point of sale (POS)

Point of sale (POS) or checkout is the location where a transaction occurs. A "checkout" refers to a POS terminal or more generally to the hardware and software used for checkouts, the equivalent of an electronic cash register.

A POS terminal manages the selling process by a salesperson accessible interface. The same system allows the creation and printing of the voucher.

yes it will be both

The general idea was to use a single server and terminal units at check out stations.
