Odoo 17 introduces a seamless and efficient way for customers to access menus through the use of QR codes. By simply scanning a QR code with their personal device, customers can instantly retrieve the menu, eliminating the need for physical menus or waiting for assistance.

Credit Limits Support

Offering credit to customers is crucial for enhancing a business's competitiveness. Every organisation or business needs to establish effective protocols that identify the payment terms extended to customers and the amount of credit they can be granted. Implementing a Credit Limit feature proves highly advantageous in motivating customers to achieve greater value and make prompt payments to stay within their limit. 

The Credit Limit in Point Of Sale helps businesses to strictly follow the collection strategy procedures in order to track payment of invoices and also to supervise and enforce credit limits. This credit limit will demonstrate as highly useful in establishing a cap on the potential losses a company may incur from unpaid debts.

The Sales Credit Limit is the feature introduced in the Odoo v16 for sales orders only, but now in Odoo V17, the feature is available in POS Orders too.
