Due to some interest in discussing our humble project further, i’m starting a thread over here where we can go on at length about all thing CORE-POS. CORE (Cooperative Operational Retail Environment) is the latest evolution of IS4C (Integrated Systems 4 Co-op) an open-source POS software developed at the Wedge Co-op in Minneapolis, MN in the early 2000’s. CORE-POS is a highly customizable, fully modern, modular, plug-inable, skinable, API-accesible, scalable re-write of the original software. The project has been maintained continuously since its inception and is currently in use at roughly 20 co-ops throughout the US and CAN, and handling roughly $100M USD annually. We have support for a growing array of POS hardware including, but not limited to:
- in-counter scannerscales
- receipt printers, including check-franking
- FULLY integrated and EMV-compliant payment card terminals
- Deli scales
The co-op POS is of course also supported by The Tech Support Cooperative, a worker co-op of IT specialists (including myself).
For now I can just share a couple links to info if you are interested in learning more. Feel free to ask any questions about what our platform can do.
