Software for Tablet's

Posted on 2011-10-06

I am looking for software which will allow us to perform the following taks:

We need an App which could run on either an iPad or tablet running android which can be used for an operator to search through a list of customers to find information related to the customer such as specific requirements that must be adhered to. This could include text and/or images.

Ideally we need an application or web-based interface which can be used by administrators to add information to a database (ideally SQL Server) which the operators will be searching against. We would be looking to host this in-house and the tablets would be connected to the local LAN via Wifi.

If anyone could advise of any suitable off-the-shelf products or rapid/GUI application development tools which fit this description, it would be much appreciated.

    You're basically describing a CRM system, so I would look into Salesforce and the bazillion plans/sub-plans and other offerings.  It's a total cross-platform solution and very flexible.

    I think you are right in terms of it being a CRM type solution. I am really looking to find something that we can host in-house without paying a monthly subscription though - any ideas?

    There are a ton of CRM solutions that don't require the monthly fee but your issue is the mobile versions or apps.  Those tend to be features of a more well-developed system and that usually comes at cost.

    You can try looking into SugarCRM to see if they have something that will work on tablets either as an add-on or similar but I'm not aware of anything off the top of my head.
