Accidently sold an B4J app

Actually I use B4x as a hobby (I'm working in an it department for decades). So I didn't want to spend time to do support for other companies. By chance I had a contact to a company (german fashion association) which wanted to replace their Word-macro which creates pdf invoices. It took several ours to run and wasn't handy at all.

So I started developing on my couch for 1-2 hours for 3 days or so and presented the app to them. The runtime decreased to less than 7 secs and I added some other features in "minutes" (like debt collecting and tax reports). Of course there were some small issues but I was able to fix these in minutes, too. The company was impressed about everything (they have other suppliers which need weeks to do even small things).

BTW: Google is running a digitalization campaign here in Germany to support small businesses in times of Corona with the trade association (the company is part of them).

Be careful, some major success stories began by accident!
Don't be another statistical number!
