New Project - Timeforge Integration

Now that Microsoft Dynamics POS 2009 is finally to RTM stage, it is time to begin a new project, and one that I have been looking to work on for some time... integrating an online scheduling software package with Dynamics POS 2009.

When we headed to the POS SDK Bootcamp back in January, 2008, one of the requests I had made was to provide a method that would allow us the ability of creating a custom add-on data entry screen for common entities in the system, like Items and Employees.  Although the development team couldn't quite grasp the concepts that we needed to deal with, they did provide the necessary interfaces, and I look forward to use them shortly.

The package I am looking to integrate is called Timeforge.  It is already integrated with the Restaurant Point of Sale package, Dinerware, as well as other packages that are on the market.  Anthony Presley, one of the founders of Timeforge, was more than glad to have someone offer to do the integration, as it will save him time in hunting down a developer that can handle the intricacies of Microsoft Point of Sale 2009.

So, I look forward to start posting more about the integration, as we hope to have something that is "showable" by the RSPA show next month in Las Vegas, NV. (A trip that I have long been wanting to make)
