Openbravo, the leading developer of web-based open source Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Point of Sale (PoS) solutions for enterprises, has released version 2.20 of its open source Point of Sale (PoS) software, an application for retailers that works with touch screens, barcode scanners, and ticket printers.

Openbravo POS 2.20 includes a range of new features and functions to benefit retailers and their customers. These include modifications to the handling and reporting of taxes that match the functionality present in Openbravo's award-winning ERP package, and improvements to the customer modules, including new fields to allow retailers to capture more details on their customers and to print detailed invoices.

As well as running in one-off single POS deployments, Openbravo POS 2.20 is integrated to run as a single combined offering with Openbravo ERP. This integration allows retailers and franchises to have an integrated system to centrally control all point of sale and logistical activities across multiple sites.

To ensure that its users continue to have a simple 'download-and-install it' experience, Openbravo has also updated its installer packages in version 2.20 with new additions for major operating systems. Openbravo POS now comes with installers for Microsoft Windows, the Ubuntu Linux-based operating system, and Novell's SUSE Linux.

Openbravo POS 2.20 also brings updates to the latest versions of third-party report engines such as JasperReports and supporting libraries such as Barcode4J, a software application that generates barcodes in the Java programming language.

Paolo Juvara, Chief Products Officer for Openbravo said, "The pace at which we are able to release ten new language packs and this range of new features and functionality reflects the strength of our community base and the number of contributors on Openbravo's projects.

As our retail solution gathers momentum we will continue to work with our community to consistently deliver features to help the retailers and businesses that rely on our software to have the most functionality and the best user experience."

Tim McHugh, Chief Technology Officer of TriMet, the public transportation agency for Portland, Oregon said, "We use Openbravo POS to handle fares and ticket sales to the public, which currently involves over 300,000 rides per weekday.

We chose Openbravo POS over other POS solutions because of its rich functionality with features that related to our business twinned with the quality and robustness of the software. Installation was simple and straightforward and we now have an easy-to-use system that has increased efficiency - to date we've processed over 100,000 transactions worth more than $4.5 million dollars."

The new version, supported by an enthusiastic global community, is now available in twelve language versions including Arabic, Brazilian Portuguese, Dutch, English, French, Galician, German, Italian, Polish, Russian, Spanish, and Thai.
