Dear Odoo community,
Is it possible with standard hardware to use Odoo for high-volume PoS transactions like we know it from supermarkets?
As Odoo PoSBox hardware support is quite limited and I got some sophisticated hardware by chance to test, I have invested some time to answer this question and want to share the results of this simple but interesting question, especially about thinking big in retail and PoS use cases.

So, I hope you enjoy the blog post and if you just want to have a shortcut to the showcasing videos, feel free to take a quick look what was possible in a reasonable time. (PoSBox + 3D Barcode Scanner + Scale “Supermarket” setup) (PoSBox + 3D Barcode Scanner high-volume scanning rampage and do not miss a single bullet)

I appreciate your comments and looking forward to seeing Odoo PoS in some serious and high-performance retail business in the wild soon.
Let’s go for it ;-)
