I am looking for a program to manage a POS system.
We will need a POS unit with built in printer with a (2 ply) (normal or thermal) paper roll, the unit should have GPRS/3G/GSM/Wi-Fi capabilities. (Or whichever suitable connection to communicate with the server)
Our project overview:
We will be distributing enrolment forms for our customers to collect various information.
The form will have a serial number.
When the form is filled, it will be collected by our agents.
At collection, each client will pay a nominal fee.
The agent will enter in the POS terminal the amount paid and the form serial number of the client.
A receipt will be printed out of the POS terminal built in printer (2 copies) one copy will be given to the client and one copy will be attached to the form.
1. Arabic language (we can help with translation)
2. A database in a remote server (we will provide the hardware/server, please advise on specifications).
3. When the receipt is printed, an entry will be sent to the database (via GPRS…etc) (searchable by serial number...etc).
4. A web interface accessed via user name / password, to view totals of sales collected (please advise of any other facilities that you may find useful to add)
5. Each POS terminal should login to the server before any entries can be added to the database. (Login via user name and password)
P.S. first password will be assigned by us, to be changed by user at first login, (we always have the power to reset the password)
6. The database will only accept entries from "Authorized POS Terminals".
7. Authorized POS Terminals: we need the database program to have the facility of enrolling the POS terminals to make them Authorized (either via MAC address or via serial number...etc).
8. The POS database programme management and enrolment ….etc features should be accessible via internet (some sort of web interface) to enable total management via remote.
We may request to add some more features, but for now this should cover all our requirements.
Please feel free to recommend any POS terminal in the market that you feel comfortable working with (preferable manufacturer “Korea, Malaysia, Europe, India, Eastern Europe or any reputable manufacturer)
Please advise of all the necessary hardware needed for this solution.
Please advise of you cost for the required software to work this project, please advise of the time scale involved to complete.)
Many thanks for your time.

Add-on, the server will send a timed report (hourly, 12 hourly, daily..etc ) to an email address.
The report timing, email address / s, will be determined and set manually by us via the program web interface.
