[POS] Point of sale is very slow when there are many products (about 5000)

Dear Community,

Point of sale works pretty well for me in the past when we have less than 1000 products. It might take a few minutes to start a new POS. But now, we have about 5000 products/product variants, POS takes forever to start a new session.

From what I see, POS web client has to load all the product information when a session starts, so POS can be run offline (which is unnecessary in my case, because our computers are always connected to the internet/server) . This query takes a long time to be completed.

Does anyone have any alternatives for current out-of-the box POS module? Or are there any plans to redesign the POS module, so it loads products
asynchronously, not loads everything in a one shot.
