Looking for database app



I'm looking for either an existing app, or a programmer to construct one.  This project is for an electrical contractor, who wishes to move to the Blackberry platform.  Goals are twofold:  (1) create a standardized materials database, from which a field foreman can search/pick and place an order with a pre-specified supplier via email.  Email will be copied to home office for review, and this copy will include pricing data (estimated) which might ultimately flow into the accounting system as a provisional expense item. (2) interface with payroll service company to receive payroll data from foreman on a weekly basis.  Interface will include copy to home office as well. 


These interfaces may be web-based, or may reside on Blackberry (I'm not sure of BB's capabilities).


I'd appreciate any feedback.

Re: Looking for database app

I'm not sure if you are thinking about a DB on the BB as it sounds like you need a designer but

I'd be curious to get more discussion on this thread from somone wanting a DB on the BB,





Certainly web based approaches require less specialized development and generally the BB browser

seems to work ( please see my other posts on Browser board as there are several exceptions including

an inability to post on yahoo finanace mesage boards).


I'm working on a custom browser if you need something like that we are always interested but it probably isn't hard

to write a gui app either. The basic app wouldn't be much different from,say, something that let's you place a togo food order

while driving( and sends a copy to your budget monitoring spouse for veto, LOL). I'm thinking about ways that an end-consumer can do something similar.
