Before I started this project, the way my employer kept track of it’s inventory was to write down everything. If someone wanted to use, lets say, a laptop, they would have to write down that they’re checking it out.
This got complicated after a while, so my employer directed me to build out a system in which they could keep track of everything, but better than by paper.
The system I built was pretty fun. Completely written in PHP, the system is capable of user management, so only certain people can check out certain items. It also has the ability to group people in projects, to make it simpler to group items and roles.
As time goes by, my employer is gaining more contracts, which means the inventory system is growing as well. And more people need to checkout more items. Sometimes they need to checkout the same item. So I built the ability to schedule an item to be reserved for a later date.
