    I work for a small company with outside sales people. We've contemplated getting an iPad for our sales guys to use when out with their customers. Right now they email orders in to the main office via an Excel spreadsheet that we created. I'm looking for an app that would make order entry easier. Any thoughts? My search has not been very fruitful. We use Quickbooks, but I'm not really looking for something to integrate with it because our set up is a little complicated.

    I would probably use one of the database apps and create my own form

    Someone just mentioned Cellica Database in another thread. It might be worth looking at. FileMaker Pro is another, abet expensive, option.

    Cheaper would be to make a form style PDF (with editable text fields) and use an app like PDF Expert. Combined with Dropbox you could keep templates and upload completed order forms from anywhere with internet.

    There was another similar order taking app mentioned, but I'll be darned if I can remember the name. Sorry.

    I'd try this, and link the database to a google or dropbox account for wireless updates.

    I have done this before, order entry program, automatic with pricing and account information. The program I use was Filemaker Pro ADV. to purchase the program, yes cost is $300.00 However I use the advanced version and can develop a free standing version depending upon what you want, that will not need program to work. In addition I think Filemaker Go for the iPad is $39.99 per copy. This would work with Filemaker Pro on Mac or Windows. Please let me know if you are interested in the development of a road warriors salesman's order entry and or catalog program.
