The Drug Control Directorate of the city has laid strong amendments to all drug stores particularly with respect to expiry management. Every unsold medication ought to be disposed of with two weeks of their date of expiry. Those pharmacy stores failing to adhere to the regulation shall be prosecuted and their trading license shall be canceled by the drug inspectors.
How many times the food industries have come under scanner for selling expired products in the market? How many times we ourselves have carelessly brought home the expired foodstuffs from shops, and later took the trip to return it back. Haven’t we?
We often come across these incidents, as often the sellers are caught in selling the expired products to consumers, endangering their life.
It is a great challenge for the pharmacy house or any other shops to check the product expiry before they sell. It is quite impossible for the person in the sales counter, to check in person the expiry date of the product with respect to its manufacturing date.
The software they use in their business places may be self-sufficient in tracking the expiry of the products stored in their warehouse or their inventory. But shall not be that self-reliant in examining the product expiry when it comes to their point of sale.
Often in many cases, the POS systems fail in examining the expiry of the product during their sale and end up in selling expired products to the customers. This often hampers the face of business, affecting them in large in terms of customer retention, bad reputation, resource loss, increased expenditure and more.
To overcome these challenges, Cybrosys Technologies can have developed the module titled: Lot Based Expiry Date Warning in POS. The module is tested and works well in both Odoo Community Edition and Odoo Enterprise Edition.

Cybrosys have crafted many additional add-ons in Odoo POS to expand its plethora of functions. With the same mission, under Odoo V12, the Odoo app POS LoT Expiry Warning is developed.
The module envisions to easily track and manage the products which are soon to expire. The end users using the module shall be benefitted in large as they will be receiving real-time alerts in their POS system if the product reached its expiry date. The person in the counter thus can easily identify the expired product and reprimand from selling it further to the buyer.
Both seller and buyer are benefitted from the app. The buyer gets saved from selling expired products to the consumers and meanwhile consumer gets relieved from the duty of checking the manufacturing date and best before date prior to buying.
In the present case, the customer is prompted to check the best before and manufacturing date prior to their purchase so as to assure they are buying the qualitative and fit to use products.
