    Query/addin for custom Advantage Database Server-based Practice Management System


    In my area of legal practice there is one predominant maker of a customer data management system. Its expensive, and has not kept up with how new online functionality provided by the government could be used efficiently. In assessing the product myself, I asked this question and was told the government would have to be involved in creating the functionality, which is total BS.

    I have thought this might be a neat little niche product for me to develop. Specifically this is the issue. There are government forms that need to be completed, and the info that we need to complete them is all typical and repetitive: name, address, Date of Birth, SSN, etc. All that data lives in the ADS product but must be typed by hand in the government forms! very inefficient.

    My initial and critical issue to be solved, of course, centers on the fact that the product maker has no interest in helping me address and profit from their product's weakness.

    I am looking for help with how I would address this issue. I am thinking about perhaps a browser addin (all these forms get completed in a browser, or course) which could then query the custom ADS management system that lives on the user's desktop. Any ideas as to how I can start assessing how to do this?
