Re: Odoo: Large-Scale Odoo POS Implementation - 300 Stores

- 04/28/2017 08:52:51
Hi Mohamed, 

Maybe I'm not following up correctly, but how is the POS offline mode not a solution for your use case? If there's not an Internet connection the POS will save the orders locally and then sync with the remote server.

Aside of that, if what you need is instant update of prices, stock and partners across all the POS, there's a way to achieve this using the longpolling that Odoo already implements for multitasking, but in the POS.

Am I missing something else?

Dear Mohamed,

Your concern is right, we may not use the Odoo POS standard to implement for large scale supermarket, there would be loosing some orders, mean some orders at POS cannot sync to Odoo central server. We have encountered that.

Our solution same as what you expected, we call it POS connector, we install the POS offline at each store and it sync data to Odoo central server, 2-ways synchronization. Everything is about the POS connector, it just need the internet, no matter with the infrastructure or VPN. It took us about six months to build and optimize this module, now it work extremely fine, we have already implemented it for 4 supermarket already.

Focus on the connector.

Kind regards,

Dear All,

We are implementing Odoo for a large-scale supermarket chain with 300 stores where each store can have more than one POS terminal and all should be connected to 1 central Odoo database that manages the rest of the ERP (accounting, HR, inventory, purchasing,…)

We are thinking of installing Odoo locally at each store to maintain uptime and mitigate connectivity issues. Each of these databases will be integrated to the main database through VPN. The Integration will have to go 2 ways as we will need to update products, price-lists, do inventory moves, promotions, sales and accounting transactions.

Does anyone have experience with such implementations? What kind of infrastructure can we tackle scalability and connectivity issues?
