    Intranet for a mall


    Hello, thing is Im doing my systems engineering internship in the systems department of a mall... the manager told me about a project they have in mind... and intranet were store owners can communicate with the mall to report problems and inform of payments. On this intranet, different departments of the mall would be able to communicate with each other as well.

    So... user identification would be a must, and the user interface would depend on wich profile he/she is using.

    As theres a lot of free time in front of a computer on the internship time, Id like to start developing this but Im kind of clueless... I could make the login system with different interfaces on Visual Basic but dont know how to link two PCs with all this shared information.

    Ive read about Sharepoint and it seems to be suited for this but I have never used it so Im wondering what software would you recommend and how would you start the project? Thanks

    Wouldn't this be better as a webpage? Then even ipads and registers and whatever can link to the wifi in the mall and get to the intranet services without needing to troubleshoot individual software installs and deal with version incompatibilities.
