tughThis is the software used by Getronics (former Olivetti) to handle Sanpaolo orders and invoices (a difficult task because of a really big set of codes and prices and discounts and special combinations of items).

Written in Visual Basic with Access databases and some trick to handle concurrent access to .mdb files, Thug features a nice set of reports and an automatic distributed backup system (from that time when a user destroyed the database and all the backups – I still don’t know how!)

The name Thug is from an episode of Star Trek the Next Generation.
