Instructor's Reply:

1. You will not save name, contact info and other for walk-in

customer. But you should save information about oil change record with

reference to vehicle number for walk in customer.

2. Customer can use any one of above mentioned choices to get this facility.

3. If this is a web based application then promotions can be displayed

on web and send sms to their regular customers also. You can use your

mobile with the PC and send and receive sms by using any free API in

your code.

4. I suggest you to visit any shop to get these details.
