Topic: Point of sale implementation proposition
We are currently about to implement Cash sale/POS functionality and want to know FA community members opinions about proposed solution. The POS model is as follows:
. Company can have multiply points of sale in different locations.
. Every POS can perform direct cash sale, distance selling, or both. Every POS has assigned location and cash account for cash sales purposes.
. Every FA user (salesman) has related POS.
If user's POS allow both cash and distance selling there is an additional selector on Direct Invoice page to switch between normal and cash sale. In cash sale mode he entry page does not contain delivery details, and all needed postings related to cash receive and allocations will be done automatically (without AR account use) when processing the invoice. Otherwise all delivery details must be entered and all goes as before.
All needed changes to user interface reflecting this model are currently uploaded on unstable fa2 demo at http://fa2.iron.from.pl , although no needed automatic allocations etc is implemented yet.
The changes in UI are:
. POS table editor in Miscellaneous section of Setup module (finally it will be
available only for admins of course).
. Additional POS selector in admin's user setup
. Cash/Delayed payment selector in Direct Invoice.
All comments - bad or good - are welcome.
