A Question Regarding Point of Sale/Barcodes

Post by Christianguard » Wed Jan 27, 2010 8:26 pm

I am relatively new to Joomla, as I was referred to the project by a professor who mentioned that it may be the solution to the needs I was describing. Essentially what I am attempting to do is:

1)Set up a ecommerce site for a client

2)Allow this site to function in the traditional way (shopping cart check out via Virtuamart)

3)Allow this site also to work via barcoding/POS. As in, barcoding the inventory and allowing items to be sold on site by one of our retail merchants using a bar scanner. Essentially this person would use the site to check out customers at the actual site.

I did some fishing around and found a few related topics but nothing that seemed to satisfy the question. I'm on a bit of a time constraint as to whether or not to recommend that we go in the Joomla direction to the employer, so any answers would be appreciated. I looked into KasaNova as well, but was unable to determine if it was what I was looking for:
