Also, here’s a response to your previous email (sent to firstname.lastname@example.org)
actually In my local marked I want to capture the Retail Industry. If we have Openboxes as the Warehouse management system, since it can mark bin/location for the inventory item. in order to print the barcode labels for placing on the inventory item it should be able to do it.
So it sounds like we can do this part with what exists.
Once labels are printed and placed on items we can then take Stock Intake.
Can you elaborate on what you mean by Stock Intake? Are you talking about receipt and putaway? Or just an initial stock count? And in either case, can you describe the steps you would take for this process?
My market would love to have POS interated for the retails as a One stop Shop for - Warehouse managment, picklist, label printing and Retail POS for the outlets.
Just to ensure that we’re heading down the right path … what exactly is your market? And where are you located?
2ndly if we place RFID in place we can generate picklist or the items being sold and pick can get a location map from system (based on binlocation marking")
That would be amazing. I don’t have experience with RFID just yet so I don’t know how complicated this would be. But I’ll assume you know. We could also look into integration with a pick-to-light system which wouldn’t require expensive RFID tags and seems like a more accessible way of making order picking more efficient. But we can explore a bunch of technological options for making picks more efficient.
for the pos definitely sales is also included , sorry if i missed it earlier but all
So the Sales POS should probably be done using another system.
- Do you have thoughts on what features that POS system supports?
- Do you need to integrate with an accounting system?
- Does it need to be Cloud or on-premise?
- Do you prefer commercial or open-source?
- If commercial, is there a specific system that you might want to use (Square, Clover, Shopify, Aloha)?
- If open-source, do you have a specific system in mind?
In general, we should discuss your requirements in more detail. If you have time let’s schedule a call to discuss details next week.
FWIW, some of the basic barcode scanning can be done at the moment through the current UI (basic lookup and scanners work like a keyboard so they can be used in fields that require input that would be available ). I’ll try to create a video once I get my scanner working with the barcode labels I’m generating.
With that said, the current functionality does not get us very far so there’s a significant amount of work to be done, either in building a new app to be used on handheld devices (computers like the Zebra TC20 or Android/iOS mobile phone) that is customized to do very specific warehouse tasks like stock lookups, item putaway, order picking, etc. Or to implement that functionality into the current web app.
