We need a billing and invoice presentment system developed. A very good model to research so that you understand the full breadth of this project is www.accountis.com. PLEASE RESEARCH THIS SITE AND UNDERSTAND IT BEFORE YOU BID. A GOOD GRASP OF OF THIS CONCEPT IS CRITICAL TO YOUR SUCCESS. Attached to this posting is a .zip file with a slide show which gives a general overview of the process we will create. PLEASE REVIEW THE SLIDE SHOW CONTAINED IN THE ZIP FILE PRIOR TO BIDDING. There are four main components to this system which require specific skill sets - they are: 1) A database defined and developed using MySQL. 2) A printer driver which will create an encrypted binary file. 3) A desktop program which will "listen" for notification from the server process that inbound documents are waiting. This program will stay in the system tray. This program will perform other functions as well such as displaying documents in a "pretty" format, printing documents, creating text files for import, having an "auto-fill" feature to populate fields in the users accounting software. It will also send outbound documents to the server. 4) A server process which will be responsible for receiving, routing, verifying, logging and storing the binary files. Programmers who develop with industry standards will be given priority consideration. Special consideration will be given to programmers who can demonstrate that they have developed "slick and pretty" websites with eye appeal. IMPORTANT: We are in the Eastern United States so international bidders must provide a proposed way to communicate (live chat via AOL or MSN is fine)on a frequent basis. Thanks and happy bidding!!
