I want to create database program that will run in windows without the needed for access/open office etc.
I want a program that will allow the entry of equipment information, serial numbers, model details, purchase dates, a note section and a unique key (from asset label stickers). I want the database to be searchable by serial number, key, model/manufacture etc
Ideally i would like to be able to customise the colours (but not particually important) but mainly customise a company logo/splash screen. I would also like a sort of about box/page with my details.
I hope to distribute the program to companies who i provide security marking services for so they can inventory their stock
I am not really bothered how the application is run (ie browser vs desktop app, VB vs mySQL etc) so long as it is complete and i can install it on a clients machine and they can run it to input equipment data and then search for the data when necessary to locate a particular piece of euipment from a serial number, model number, purchase date etc. I would like a splash screen with my logo and company details (which I would supply) when the program loads and then an area for the using companies logo (something like a set 300x200 pixel area so the logo can be changed from company to company if you understand. I would also be happy for an author credit to be included if you wished.
I did not really have a time scale in mind at the moment as I am putting together the business. Is there anything that needs to be done for me to make a charge for supplying the software. It is possible to catalog the data in a spreadsheet but i would like to offer a neater but chargable solutin to my customers if they would like.
