I need a software to manage a small business I'm opening.
The first thing you need to know is that the idea is having a database in a server of somekind with all the information stored in it and somekind of client software that I can install in any number of computers I need as my business grows. This client software should be able to access the database in the server, add information, modify it or even erase it.
Every employee of mine would have his own username and password and the software won't let you access any information without it. If possible the database would have an entrance log so I can see who did what and when.
I also need that some functions of the software are only accesible by me. I don't know if this can be solved by making two different kind of client softwares (kind of an admin software and a user software) or by password identification in which according to the type of privileges is the functions you have access to.
I would prefer something not based on Web but an executable, but I'm open to suggestions.
Finally, you must consider in your bid the necessary tech support in choosing and installing the server and setting up the necessary network connections.
The software has to be in Spanish so it's preferable that you speak Spanish but not mandatory, I can help with the translations.
So...what's this software about? I've written an overview of the project and included some excel files with macros and stuff to help you get the idea, please download the files if the project interests you.

b) For all others including desktop software or software the buyer intends to distribute: A software installation package that will install the software in ready-to-run condition on the platform(s) specified in this bid request. (Windows XP)

For the server I would prefer something that doesn't require that I actually purchase a server. Just a PC designated as server with the database and all the necessary software. Windows server edition or whatever you suggest. But I need you to specify it in your bid so that I can consider the cost of the necessary software.
For the clients: Windows XP
