Openbravo Retail : WebPOS Price Limit Validation

Openbravo for Retail offers a complete functionality for multichannel retailers, from Sales and Customer Relations to Finance and Operations. Its HTML5 web POS can be run on modern tablet devices, helping to improve dramatically the employees productivity and customer buying experience.

However, Openbravo for Retail is not only intended for pure retailers. Are you a distributor who is struggling with your mobilized sales force? Do you have trucks, and lack of complete control over their inventory levels in order to ensure they can fullfill all orders? Do you want to provide your drivers with a powerful tool that helps them to avoid data entry errors, improve your data quality and therefore provide support for a better decision making process?
If you have answered positively to some of these questions, Openbravo for Retail is also a solution for you !.

We deployed Openbravo WebPOS in Truck sales for Wholesale & Retail distribution.So truck sales man face bargain and require option to change price. Normally Sales man will reduce price based on number of quantities,Customer relationship.This is fine but company want to ensure,sales man should have a limit for every product and system shouldn't allow any sales beyond that.So we utilized "Price Limit"  in pricelist and created a new module "WebPOS Price Limit Validations".
Case - 1:
Sales man requires price edit option and the system shouldn't allow any sales,less than product price limit.  
i)Add preference "Web POS action Change price" to "Y"
ii)Add preference(new) "Web POS Enforce Price Limit" to "Y"

Case - 2
Sales manager requires price edit option and the system shouldn't restrict sales based on price limit.
i)Add preference "Web POS action Change price" to "Y"
ii)Add preference(new) "Web POS Enforce Price Limit" to "N"

It's possible to set preference based on role,user. 

 Example(case - 1): 1)Avalanche  Transceiver ,selling price is "150.5"  & Price Limit is "135.45"

2) Sales man selected  "Avalanche Transceiver" for sales.

3) Sales man changed price to "125" and got warning from system with detailed information.

4) Once user clicked okay or closed popup,selling price updated back to last value.

What's Next:

Price Limit validation override for certain products.Allow user to sell some products without any price limit(products going to expiry soon) and remain products with Enforce Price Limit(with Validation).New rule logic is product+role, product+user.

We released this module in Openbravo forge as Free Commercial Module(can only be used by Retail - Professional instances)
