I am designing a transportation agency/workflow system, and I am wondering whether using SharePoint 2007 could facilitate my development process?
Here is a brief introduction of the system. The system including 3 roles of people, customer who requests to transport some stuff, drivers who deliver the stuff, and truck manager who manages transport source/destination truck coordination and communicates/organizes drivers.
The system is expected to be a web site, and 3 kinds of people could use the web site to submit request, accept request, monitor status of specific stuff transportation, etc. The web site is more like an open agency or a workflow system.
My question is, whether I could base my application on SharePoint 2007, and if yes, more details about how SharePoint could facilitate/speed-up my system design/implementation (e.g. some existing features of SharePoint 2007 could be used instead of developing from scratch using ASP.Net + IIS)? Appreciate if any online system which is similar to my application based on SharePoint, so that I can make a quick reference. :-)
thanks in advance, George
