About
Welcome to Chromis Pos & open source Pos applications.
Following on my extensive work in supporting open source pos with a large number of additional features
and fixes. I have decided to start producing additional applications as extensions to these open source
applications, or any other open source POS software that be adapted to use these applications.
My changes can be found at www.chromis.co.uk
These applications will be released as open source, with the applications released on the SourceForge
platform and Github used for the source code.
