Companies that sell multichannel often have the problem of optimally connecting the various sales channels with the warehouse. Several softwares such as point of sale system (POS), online shop software, enterprise resource planning software (ERP) and middleware (connection ERP to the onlineshop) are needed to realize everything and make the work complicated. With Odoo it's different - because in Odoo the different components are integrated. Odoo is online shop, ERP and cash register system in one.

To work with Odoo POS (Point of Sales), you first need the Odoo POS Box. It is the connector to the different hardware that you need in operation. Typical devices are: laptop, tablet, barcode scanner, scales, receipt printer, card reader and wireless router, the most diverse providers. The installation of additional software for the devices used is not necessary.

The Odoo POS Box has different ports to communicate with all devices. These include a LAN connection (RJ45), HDMI, USB (4 x), audio and SD card. For the first commissioning of Odoo POS you need Internet. If it is temporarily unavailable, you can also work offline.

Shop or restaurant?

Odoo POS has the variants shop (for retail) and restaurant (gastronomy). This distinction is important because in the restaurant version all sales (orders) are booked on specific tables or on the corresponding seats. Otherwise, both versions are the same in construction. We have prepared several tutorials for you (german), which explain the exact functionalities.

One of the biggest benefits of the Odoo POS system is that sales (and purchases) change inventory in real time. So if the last product is sold in the store, then it is no longer available in all other sales channels. Also, the cash register system is linked to the Odoo ERP finance area, which ensures accurate billing.

Another advantage is the clear user interface. It impresses with its simple user interface and operation - starting with logging in, adding products, all the way to a simple payment process. It does not matter whether you are working with a tablet, laptop or desktop computer and whether it is running on Android or iOS - it just works. Along with this, the very good mobility (tablet, laptop) is another advantage, as there is no fixed, difficult cash register, but a light system is available - which also looks good. Furthermore, only one software is needed (Odoo) and working is possible online and offline.
