So, we are beginning a redesign of our retail store software, from
the ground up. There are plenty of off the shelf products I can use
for the basis of my store, but I'd rather build it all myself and
thereby completely understand everything it does.
A visit to my local Barnes and Noble store along with a pretty good
question answer period with Dr. Google leads me to believe that
nobody has written a book on the best practices for building a web-
based retail POS. Anyone ever heard of such a thing?
Specifically, I'm looking for pointers to ensure that the system:
A) Accurately tracks customers and their invoices
B) Allows for our business model that centers around the concept of
C) Keeps the accountants happy. :-)
The major failing of our current incarnation of home-grown software
is in letter C above, but it could stand to improve in A and B as well.
