Possession Quick Start


Introduction

Possession is a Point-Of-Sale system designed for Australian retailers. Version 3.0 of Possession is derived from OpenBravoPOS 2.1.
Possession is designed to work stand-alone without a central ERP system. Therefore it supports purchasing, inter-branch transfers, invoicing and other functionality not supported by OpenBravo.

This is suitable for businesses where the stores control the sales and purchasing process without intervention by the Head-Quarters. Customisations are available for business models where the Head-Quarters controls some processes or requires information from stores for Planning and Budgeting.

In addition Possession is pre-configured for Australian retailers, with support for GST and 5-cent rounding rules, and with support for Lay-by transactions. Customisations are available for Pharmacies and other specialist retailers.
This guide will provide a quick introduction to using Possession 3.0 and features that are different from OpenBravoPOS 2.1. This guide consists of 5 pages. Links to the next page are at the bottom of each page.
