Re: Using point of sale interface for other functions

There is a lot of this sort of questions on the lists, revolving around 
how to make a mobile/touch interface for various functions, and mainly WMS.
There was almost the same question on expert-inventory@mail.odoo.com 
this week.
     -> Maybe it's time for the OCA to step in? Joël do you have an 
opinion about this?

To sum it up, here's what I understand of the situation:
- The POS is a full fledged web app in itself, with lots of plumbing 
like offline sessions, hardware proxy (posbox) etc. I'm not sure how 
modular it is, I wouldn't bet you can reuse it for other objects like 
stock moves, but I may be wrong. If someone knows better I'd love to 
hear from them.
- The standard v8 does have a basic barcode/touch driven interface. 
Check it out, maybe the simplest route is to extend that.
- Odoo has a mobile framework for android, it's not officially supported 
but some cmmunity members seem to be using it.
- there is a popular android client called mERP, it's closed source but 
tries to remain "cheap". SerpentCS and probably other companies also 
propose WMS android clients for Odoo.
