How to capture customer info?
Posted on 2011-05-02
When customers use my application, they register their contactinfo (like address and such).
Currently this is done in an online MySQL database.
In my application they see a form with their data and then they press the upload-button.
As the version of the MySQL databaseserver is changing, I would need to upgrade the libmysql.dll regularly. To overcome this, I would like my application to fill in a webform, so registration is independend of any dll on the customer system.
What needs to happen is the following:
1. customer presses registration button (in delphi application).
2. customer information is uploaded.
3. Fields are added/updated into a online database.
The online database doesn't have to be a actual database, as long as it can function as:
adding/updating customerinfo by customers
retrieving customerinfo by applicationdeveloper (me, myself and I)
Does anybody have a good solution for this?
