You can test the features easily on Odoo Online. You will have information in the planner (progressbar in the top menu of the barcode app)

Odoo 9 Enterprise supports:

- print barcode on documents (header + lines), not qr code but easy to customize. But there is no integration with printnode.
- scan documents, products and/or lots for all kind of operations: inventory, receptions, delivery, internal moves...
- barcode scanning on MO/WO is for v10 (october 2016) So, you will have to keep your custom module for that. Note: all Odoo Enterprise customers can upgrade for no extra cost once v10 is released.

> Is the shipping module integrated tightly with barcodes? My biggest issue is making sure I record lot numbers on delivery orders by scanning a unique barcode per lot. I do not want to hand type in lot numbers, too many inventory mistakes with that.

Yes, Odoo supports scanning lots number at delivery order.

The barcode scanner app is mobile too.

> Next issue is around licensing. We're a small company and only need 5 users and I can afford the $1500/yr for that but I have about 60 independent dealers that sell our products and I have them setup to use v7's crm now though most aren't actively using it.

> Thoughts? Suggestions?

You should book a meeting with a salesperson to get a price for your usecase:

Note that, for the price, we do the upgrade of your database, but not the specific modules.
