About WMS (Whatever Management System)
Basically WMS creates for you an environment very similar to your desktop for the administrative backoffice.
The public area it's up to you.
Using this tool you don't need to be a skilled programmer.
You just need to have knowledgebase of relational databases and that's all.
The application code, for every new module you are going to create, is generated by the application itself.
The owner is called to simply create visually the data models and click buttons to scaffold the source code.
NO PROGRAMMING SKILL IS REQUIRED
Once the code is created you can edit manually and add/integrate your own features.
The final effect is awesome and the administrator feels like at home.
This is due to the windowed approach. Administrator already know how to handle a window, minimize, maximize, change wallpaper and themes etc.
It's a sort of online MDI form Application Generator which provides a simple way to create both the UI (User Interface) for the Frontend using kendo-ui framework and the Backend (CRUD) using Laravel framework.
Someone define it a sort of online access wizard, and it's not so far.
If you want to try out .... it's free
