"WebLube"?
Posted by tim in Project Ideas on January 19, 2006

Today, I was on the phone with "Boss Lady". We were discussing the current state of the company website, as I just recently added an employee "day off request" feature. She asked if I would be able to incorperate some sort of time clock for the guys at the other shop, where they don't really have the same computer system we do, and so she wouldn't have to hassle with paper time cards when she runs payroll every other week.

One thing lead to another, and I mentioned that the entire business could be run from the website, and from any computer with internet access. She was shocked (in a good way), and asked if I would really be able to put something together that would allow them to manage the inventory, the sales, payroll, and whatnot. I told her it was absolutely possible, but that it would be a rather large undertaking.

The last thing she said to me before we ended our conversation was, "Don't take this idea lightly. I really want to do it and I think you could make a very profitable product with it."

No, they have a software suite for it, but it sucks and doesn't always work right.
