Do you have information about the interface to the ERP back end?

I read that as "will include automated acceptance tests", but perhaps
you meant something else?

There's a good chance you'll need to use PySerial, if the
cash registers are connected via RS-232, but beyond that
there's not much to say without more info.  I believe I
heard somebody talking about a Python POS system before
in this newsgroup, but I'm not sure: check the archives?
