As a business owner and project manager we would like to include custom customer numbers for each customer. This way we can easily track who the customers are, sort them by ID and quickly find sister-sites. Also when searching, using the number "1201" is much easier than, "Acme Industrial Widget Corp."

As a DBA or Module creator it is much easier to query against CustomerNumber versus full/partial name since names leave leaves room for errors and not as clean.

This intergration with the current database layout shouldn't be too time consuming.

Thank you for your consideration

You can add custom field in designer for customer(contact/account) numbers and it will work fine except in global searches(but advanced search should work fine).
