Trade Accounting - system of warehouse and sales accounting for Android-devices

Author:   Kravchenko Andriy,

A bit of history

As we have mentioned, the interest in android-platform arose from the complete life cycle of the platform Windows Mobile. Since our solution for trading and collecting bids TCU Mobile exploited enough mass, then there was an urgent need for the development of the decision, despite the change of platform. When the choice fell on Android, it was decided to first implement a compact design - data collection terminal Barcode Terminal . This platform allowed us to study and gain the necessary experience.

During the creation of Barcode Terminal, we felt considerable interest to users of mobile solutions for business. Come on proposals to implement on a mobile platform analogue Shopdesk, and even full-fledged accounting system to trade. Having taken all factors into account, we decided to do more than one application, and once the platform. And indeed, if we consider the problems that are solved accounting application, an application for a mobile commerce application and a cashier, you can allocate a lot of the same operations. But, most importantly, all these operations are a subset of the full operations of the accounting system. Therefore, the accounting system of trade and a warehouse has been decided to stop.

Purpose and Requirements

Given that the mobile platform has limited capabilities, then this application is intended primarily for compact and simple business, designated by the term "micro". What is this business?

  • MLM - trade (Amway, Faberlic, etc.). Came to the customer, the catalog chosen and created a phone order (if made ??to order) or invoice (if you have a product in a bag), and had her pay.
  • Plumber had repaired, prepared cost estimates, presented to the customer (or even printed), spent an invoice, payment received.
  • Come on-call hairdresser vows-colored, wrote a check, took charge.

On this basis, the main requirement - accounting for only one outlet. This greatly simplifies the application immediately, as its interface and internal structure.


In view of the fact that the developers of Ukraine shall not publish paid applications on Android Market, we just left the choice. The application will be absolutely free.

So, get acquainted:
