Hi All

I have just been asked if I could write a program that our salesman can access remotely. What they want to do is after seeing a customer run a program that will allow them to enter notes and comments about there visit and save to our file server so that the details are avalible to everyone straight away, sort of like a cut down CRM system.

I have no idea where to start on this one :confused: , can anybody recommend a good book on the subject?

Thanks

I'd say that your best bet is a web application. That way he can logon from any computer to enter these details. The web applicaiton could then store the data in your companies database so everyone could have immediat access to it.

Just occurred to me, you might user terminal services to allow remote access to an application running on a server in your office.

Just throw up a web service. In .Net 3.0 there is the WCF framework for creating services and in 2.0 there is the web service namespace.

Books:
Programming WCF Services - Juval Lowy
.Net Web Services -Keith Ballinger
