My main customer wants to send their orders electronically. They will be sending them as an email attachment or might be uploading them to my database and I would manually download them (I prefer email).
I have detailed info on their file layout (fixed length fields) and have verified all will work as described (I wrote parts of a verification program in VB6). They send some information that I don't need, but I need to capture it all and pick out what I need for work orders and shipping. I'd prefer to use an SQL database with a custom front end to sort the work, create my work orders, and create Packing lists for (their) customers. I need a section to allow me to collect their assigned order number and qty sent out so that I can Invoice my customer.
Reliability & backup of the database on a regular basis are mandatory. I can do it manually if needed, but why not let the machine do it if it's not too difficult? I'd also like a report that contains an order number, customer name, date _received_ and date _shipped_ that can be posted on our business website for their reps to search. It might be easier to make this a miniature searchable database on the Unix based web hosting server. You tell me the best way, OK?
The time frame to have it operational (and to get YOU paid) is three weeks from acceptance of the winning bid (Sooner is better). I will need all the source code when done. I will share all my info with you.
You should be available for the inevitable "after delievery" add-ons and upgrades. This should **_not_** be included in your price because it will be ordered seperately after completion & acceptance.
I don't judge offers exclusively by price. You may have done enough of these to tell me a better way to do it. Experince is always adds value.
**TESTED**, and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.
2) Installation package that will install the software (in ready-to-run condition) on the platform(s) specified in this bid request.
3) Exclusive and complete copyrights to all work purchased. (No GPL, 3rd party components, etc. unless all copyright ramifications are explained AND AGREED TO by the buyer on the site).
Win 2K, all service packs & upgrades; 1 Gig Ram; dual 80 Gig HD's; 2.4 Gig processor.
If we use the website, it is [url removed, login to view] (a UNIX, with PHP, I believe).
