POS System - Pawn Shop
This project will be continually growing. I am a programmer but my abilities are not professional enough to start a project like this from scratch - i'm more of a hack whom finds a way to get things done. I will offer recommendations for database tables and organization but will expect them to be reviewed and enhanced by you then sent back to me for approval. The software will be tested in my store but built in a way that it can be easily deployed to other businesses. The entire POS system should be accessible from the web browser. There will have to be an optional frontend or some type of browser plugin to access the local printers for paperwork printing and access to local webcam to take snapshots of customers and merchandise. Eventually ID scanners, thumb scanners and other forms of technology will be implemented. Security is VERY important as everything from customers drivers ID's, social security numbers and credit card numbers will be stored in the database. As with most POS systems employees will have logins with varying degrees of access, options for shared cash drawers and individual cash drawers, etc... Reports are also very important as they are with most POS systems. There also needs to be automated reports run daily - schematics for these reports will be supplied. There will also be a customer online payment system for payments on layaways and pawns. Because this will eventually be used in shops around the country the level of customization and settings will be very robust. Pawnshop laws around the country vary dramatically from how much you can charge on a loan, extra fees allowed, length of loan, required papework, digital police reports and so on. The goal for this project is to get the software working in one store but leaving open as much as possible to be built upon later. Before launch a conversion from my current system/database to the new system will have to be automated. I use one of the most widely used pawn software around so this conversion tool will be a key component when implementing in other pawnshops. I am very familiar with the database in use so this should not be overly difficult but it is worth mentioning.
You are bidding on phase 1:
Pawnshop POS System (Master drawer/emp drawers/sales/layaway/pawns/pawn payments/extensive reporting)
Web based (we will discuss how webcam/printers will interact)
I would like this to be programmed mainly in PHP but am open if there are good reasons to go another way.
I stress this project will not end when phase 1 is over - please only bid if you plan on sticking with this for the long run.
I have been in the pawn business for over 20 years - I have programmed many extensions on top of the POS system I am currently using (such as online payments, PBX system payments, mobile access, detailed reports, security camera integration, etc..) but have reached a point where I believe a new system from scratch would better serve myself and our industry.
Please provide previous work you have done. Projects dealing with high security a plus.
If you have any questions for me don't hesitate to ask.
