Great meeting with Eric going over his progress and questions on the gift cards and gift certificates. This will be part of special accounts inside of the system (tying into existing pieces and sections). We are planning on doing single corporation gift cards for now. Once we get that done, and if someone needs it, we will tackle cross-corp or multi-corp gift cards. That gets more complicated and we could charge for that and/or those options.

Eric was going over a number of scenarios and use-cases. I loved hearing it. I could tell that he had thought about a number of great scenarios, processes, and even logic level decisions. Checks, balances, validation, flow, pages, permissions, etc. Good stuff. I was really proud of him for that. Basically, try to break it and make it stand on its own.

Part way through the meeting I grabbed the screen and we looked at existing database tables, data, and options. We were drawing and brainstorming on additional ideas. We talked about quick search options, checkout options and flow inside the cart, invoices and payments after the fact, ecommerce integration, and other advanced options. Good meeting. He is well on his way and making great progress. All of this will tie-in and be a part of the special accounts section. We already use customer loyalty points in that section of the system. More things will be coming in future months such as: in-store customer credit, vendor discounts, punch cards, lunch cards, retirement packages or accounts, and other virtual or actual special account. Good stuff.
