This is a very specific software development job that needs to be done perfectly. We are picky. I will provide the basics and we can discuss details after you have an idea for the scope of this project.
This ‘software’ will be hosted by my company and will be licensed to different companies who will have their own accounts. All information should be stored on my server and my clients should have a very secure means of logging in.
Client interface should be simple. The clients need to be able to input data and run reports. Clients will enter order information on the main form. The client should be able to enter many orders very easily. If a client enters an order that has already been entered, the client should be notified and should have the option of continuing or canceling the second order. Clients need to be able to run two primary types of reports. The first one is a daily printout of all orders entered on that (or any other particular) day, week, or month. These will be categorized geographically for the client. The second type of report is a end-of-the-month report of every order and who placed the order. My clients receive many orders every month from the same customers so they need to be able to print out a list of all orders at the end of the month for billing purposes. Perhaps the client could even set a default ‘price’ for each order and the end-of-month reports could give a total price for billing purposes. The last important tool that the client needs is to be able to search previous orders (by week, geography, client, or any other field) and edit the details of the orders. This process should be simple and have all of the search results on one page for instant editing.
This entire system needs to be VERY secure and user friendly for me and my clients. Ongoing support from the programmer would be nice. Please expect for this project to be tweaked and improved a lot since this is an important development for my company and my clients. Thanks, please use PMB to give your budget for this project.
