LibrePOS uses a relational database as its persistant storage. HSQLDB is used by default but MySQL, Oracle and PostgreSQL are also supported.

The system is internationalised and currently supports Spanish, English, German, Portuguese and Italian. Other languages can be added easily.

It allows for the creation of multiple user accounts. Accounts are assigned roles in order to determine their capabilities. You can have as many roles as you need, but the default ones are Administrator, Manager, User and Guest
