OpenERP 6.1 is out! POS Touchscreen is bundled with it!
So ever since I posted a while back about the new OpenERP touchscreen POS client I've had a storm of interest. The OpenERP POS touchscreen interface has gone under a massive and incredibly intelligent evolution since my first blog post. It now does much of its work server side and uses backbone.js and underscore for doing some snazzy AJAX magic. Flywheel has been writing a lot of node.js/CommonJS applications and we can attest to the robust nature of this approach for such a highly interactive, rich web client.
Thanks to the OpenERP S.A. team this is now a very rock solid web client, and it has a very bright future in the open source ERP world. Note that I had nothing to do with the development of this client whatsoever, was just pulling and testing it for projects we were working on.
Heres an announcement of the latest release:
OpenERP is going social with the launch of the new version 6.1.
And within that, a blurb about the much awaited Touchscreen POS:
You can now check out the awesome Touchscreen POS client via the demo available at http://www.openerp.com and/or deploy it locally or on your server to check it out. No need for a bunch of bazaar branching and moving around different versions - its all there!
