TiAdvisor (Tool Inventory Advisor) is a new feature under development within HSMAdvisor.
Unlike most cases when developers design a standalone product and then go through a laborious work of integrating it into existing software products, i decided to go the other way.
TiAdvisor will be developed as an integral part of HSMAdvisor and then, once complete, will be moved into a separate standalone product. This will make for seamless integration between our software products.
What TiAdvisor does
- Keeps track of inventory levels.
- Automatically add tools that are low in stock to Purchase Request List
- Generate and print Purchase Request form
- Add tools to stock when they are received
More functions are being worked on.
Download TiAdvisor bundled with HSMAdvisor over here: http://zero-divide.net/index.php?page=forums&shell_id=170&article_id=4776
