Openbravo POS is a popular open source Point-of-Sale project. It functions as a seamlessly integrated module of Openbravo ERP, with a smooth flow of information from the retail floor to the back office.
The program is completely integrated into Openbravo’s ERP application. This enables the software to update stock levels, financial journals and customer data directly in the central database when a POS sales is executed in the stores. Openbravo POS can be applied using PDAs for order intake.
Openbravo POS is developed in Java, and uses Swing to provide an intuitive user interface. It is database independent, using the JDBC interface, and JasperReports and FreeChart to build reports and charts.
