New Project Design Questions

New Project Design Questions

We currently do a ton of tracking and data collection of parents and
children that use our facilities, this includes registration, and a sign in
and out "FORM" each time they visit, plus additional tracking done by the
people on the floor. We'd like to automate as much of the paper work as
possible and save everyone a lot of trouble. The only problem is that we
currently have 10 different sites. So this is what I'd like to do.

When users enter our facility I'd like to have them electronically sign in
(right now I'm thinking of using key ring barcodes and a barcode reader) or
a last name and phone number search. Once the user is identified it would
list all of the children that they have registered in the past and give them
the option to specify which children are with them now.

I'm a VB 6 and ActiveX developer by trade but haven't programmed in about 8
months, I've been given the resources and time to pursue this project if I
want to teach myself something new so the question is can VB.net handle
this? I'd prefer to have the program run as a web application so that all
the sites are using the most current information and so that I don't have to
visit each site every time there is a problem with the "software" I've done
web based ActiveX's in the past but wasn't happy with the amount of tech
support that I needed to keep them running. I think a web style application
would be best. I'd appreciate your thoughts and comments.
