Project overview: Create a First Call Response Network for a membership organization that will flag member firms interested in providing a definitive list of services to other member firms across the state of Illinois. All members are in an existing member database which includes information on company, name, contact info, e-mail address. This tool will work off an exhibiting client authentication system that controls web site access.
Members can search by address, city or county with results to be returned in "pushpin" Google format. All available firms in the area should be shown in map format with computer pins indicating exact location. The returned results should only show firms that are participating in the program (rather than all member firms in the area). This search function is crucial to the success of the project.
When firm is selected , a popup window or link to another screen will show that firm's information and a link to required forms.
Members will contact one another via phone or e-mail for this service. They can rate providers.
Individual profile which includes editable fields (services provided, about us, etc) Profile will draw partly on existing data, partly on new data to be entered by member.
Ability to opt in/out of the program for specific times (e.g.. vacation) (inactive status)
Link to members' ratings with ability to respond to comments.
This tool will work off an existing client authentication system. Members will be logged in in order to access their profile page.
"News area" where the administrator can post notices of general interest to participants.
Ability to view members who are participating in the program
Ability to add or remove members from the program, or to place them on inactive status.
Log of search activity (site uses Google Analytics)

Ability to upload, edit and delete .pdf forms to be included as part of the program
Ability to add, edit and delete categories and services within those categories
Ability to mass e-mail all participants
Ability to add, edit and delete news items which will appear in a general landing page.
Program must be comparable with PHP 4/5 and use MySQL database.
User data must be filtered with appropriate error messages

We will prove to be your best choice when it comes to creating membership sites, specially their integration with google maps. See live examples from us in the pm
