    Talking Application Built Around MapPoint

    Hi Gang,

    I have a prospect that is looking for an invoicing solution to be built off the MapPoint Navigation / Mileage Data. This is what they are looking for:

    1) Setup a Customers Table - customers he does work for with ADD, EDIT, DELETE.
    2) Setup a Services Table - services they preform with ADD, EDIT, DELETE. One of the services they charge for is "Per Mile".
    3) Capture Calculated Mileage - Using the NAVAGATION capabilities of MapPoint, they want to hit a START button, drive for a distance, hit a STOP button, and have the system automatically tell him how far he travelled and have it auto calculate based on the rate per mile setup at the service level, and add it to an invoice that can be printed in the truck.

    I know this is pretty high level description, but does anyone on the forum care to quote on a such a product?

    Re: Application Built Around MapPoint

    None of the gurus around here touched this since you posted it a couple of days ago, so I thought I would at least say hello . I don't know the solution, but I just cannot help thinking how much simpler it would be to create something very simple, but nice looking in Excel. The driver of the truck would then simply reset his trip meter at the start of the trip. At the destination he would enter the miles from the trip meter into Excel. XL would then multiply the distance by the desired price per mile (and add what ever rate on top of that). Why not keep it simple?

    Microsoft MapPoint (or even the less expensive Microsoft Streets & Trips) could be just used as a map to aid the driver. If the driver forgets to reset the trip meter at the start of the trip, he can easily get the mileage by entering start and stop anytime (even before the trip).
