Dot Net Inventory System combines the power of the dot net platform into inventory control software, providing the most flexible, powerful and highly customization solution for both developer and end user. When we talk about Inventory, the database system plays most important part, from storing data to processing, it all down to the database to produce updated reporting. A good inventory control system consists of 4 main components.
Component #1 - Scalability. From the software interface to database storage, all must be scalable to support a larger amount of items and transaction. Multiple end user interface ensure suitability on different application, the dot net platform is extremely portable and supporting multiple different interface, from web to windows and Silverlight cross platform presentation layer. Component #2 - Extensible.
Source code based software will provide the highest extensibility, developer can easily modify, enhance and extend feature and functionality to the system. Good source code design must be plug-able, easy to integrate and RAD in nature. RAD means Rapid Application Development; The source code itself must be created in RAD tools to ease the future enhancement. Component #3 - Real-time performance. No matter if the system process data in real-time or batch, it must be able to provide "real-time" performance, fast and accurate.
This highly dependent on the stored procedure coding in the server site processing. If the software cannot handle a large volume processing in time, it will be a problem for another Integrated system, such as Point of Sales or Warehouse control system, delay processing will also delay reporting. Component #4 - Remote Access. Every business software today must equip with remote access, that's why web based application has become many software vendor's priority, they all need to provide the information anywhere, anytime! For the security reason, some people might prefer powerful Windows client that connect through Internet for access the information. Always use these 4 components as a guide to select the proper software for your company. Company with the development team should always consider the source code based Inventory system, and only source code based Inventory can provide the highest flexibility to a development team.
