Software to aid the daily activities and running of a marquee business

The project was proposed and carried out by Hamish Fenton

The project is to design and build a software solution for a Marquee erection company. The marquee company has been growing and with that is facing problems of keeping track of equipment and planning for future business. To solve these problems a piece of software is to be designed and implemented to provide planning and management services to the company.

Marquee Manager is a piece of software designed to help make informed decisions about the management and daily running of a Marquee Company.  It offers the functionality to keep track of jobs via geographical and table based data. It also allows the user to view stock numbers on specific dates as well as the ability to change the total stock numbers.

The Marquee Hire Company that the software is intended for is Tents and Event a family run business specializing in premier quality marquee hire and equipment. Their main office and yard is based in Dunoon and in the last couple of years has seen it expand to having a second yard in Glasgow.
