I have a web based application developed in It is a business application and people do regular deal & transaction from this portal.

The application have two types of user :
1) Front User - who make the deal
2) Back-office User - who look all accounting & voucher generation work for deal

The current problem is, now to check any new deal has created by front user the back-office user need to keep on refreshing the web page in every few minutes which is very hesitating.

I want to develop a small windows based notification service through which I can show them notification without going to the browser. It will be in the same manner as Gtalk desktop tool notify us for newly received mail.

So to achieve the above thing what should I use and how to use & implement the solution ?

I need to develop the solution using .Net framework

If a desktop app would suffice, you could write a simple app that periodically checks the db for new deal records since the last check, much like an email checker app. The app would run in the system tray and display a visual notification (and even open the browser to the app's login page, if configured to do so) when a new deal is written.
