Woohoo!!! Running on an iPaq is just great! That is exactly what I hoped for.
If an app the size of TikiWiki can run on such a device, what do you think about this business solution running on a handheld or other small device:
- access control
- time keeping
- job registration
- fuel distribution
- up to 5000 employees
- up to 100 registration devices (smart card or contactless card readers like the Mifare technology)
- up to 100 doors, gates, barriers,...
- this all connected over IP to a small device on which the access control software runs
The only problem I see is the huge size of the database for historical data and reporting purposes, that would have to be transferred to off-line storage, like a database server running on a real pc. But all the real-time stuff should be able to run on something very small... woohoo! I think I'll make our R&D department very happy!
