We came across a free open source Point of Sale (PoS)
application called Tina/Libre POS a few years ago when looking for a
solution for a leading leisure industry client in Europe. POS was a key requirement for them.
Tina/Libre POS was closely
considered for the project and even though it didn't do everything
wanted at the time, the POS from the Club Membership system supplier did
even less by the way, it certainly gave enough flexibility straight
out-of-the-box to immediately overcome several immediate challenges.
With further development it could have met the objectives and gone on to
be a key, fully integrated Line Of Business application and the the
corner-stone of the group's customer facing retail activity.
We promised, one day,
we would revisit the Tina/Libre POS project and do something more with
it. We have; it's called uniCenta oPOS.
In the last few years the Tina/Libre POS project became Openbravo POS
and it has evolved into a very usable, mature and robust application.
Openbravo has integrated it into their successful Openbravo ERP product.
