Hi Team,
One of my Customers with a stock system has asked if I can let the storeman know in real time via some flagging/alert
mechanism when a part has been 'added' to an order so he/she can go pick it in anticipation. The storeman has an app,
separate from the 'adding' app, that allows him/her to 'issue' the part to the order and make the necessary stock
adjustments as well as flagging if it is out of stock and needs to be re-ordered.

Appreciate thoughts/suggestions as to how this could be best achieved.

Regards & TIA,
Ian

Sounds like a good use (potentially) for app tethering - are the two devices on the same LAN?

Another option worth considering is event mechanism from your database.
Then you can have unlimited (almost) number of listeners.
I use this even for list refreshing.
