Moving Toward Corporate Uses of PN

Contributed by on Jun 06, 2002 - 09:11 AM

PN needs a module that can be used for client/company relations, something customizable through an admin tool and having a wide range of prospective uses. It could have different fields, giving the company the choice of what that field is called, what pertains to that particular field, and how it effects or is effected by other fields within the module and database. After the customization is applied, a database table(s) is created with the customized module and ready to go. One option for such a module could be a whole sale company giving clients log in access to their accounts, the ability to order/reorder items, check current balances, or the availabilty of merchandise or services all from their browser where ever they may be located. While another company could be using the same module for something totally different, or similar but fitting more to their needs. I think in order for PN to go to such a level, the module must first be able to be made to fit their needs, and then allow them to choose what they do need. This was just something I thought of while discussing PostNuke with some colleagues and explaining to them how far it could actually be taken. The rest of PN would compliment something like this very well, considering everything else it already offers. I am not knowledgable enough of php to actually be able to do something like this, but I thought i'd at least mention the idea. I'm sure I'm not the only person to think of something like this and apologize if it has already been suggested before now.
