**Requirements / Comments:
I have a client that has therapy business in 4 locations with 17 practitioners. The practitioners do not always practice at same location we need to be able to scale to 8 locations with max 37 practitioners.
1. Clients are able to be have appointment confirmations, and up to 3 reminders of an appointment by their choice, or Admins: Via SMS Text Only, &/or by email.
2. Also when the appointments are sent to practitioners at various locations by SMS text only &/or email (choice by admin) The scheduled practitioner only receive clients name and appointment time, and service type scheduled -- all other client
information needs to be cloaked, or remain confidential for admins use only.
3. Ability to block or revoke session and scheduling by a previous customers or prankster who are 'blacklisted' (blacklisting to be entered by admins only)based on info given and most importantly recognition of IP addresse(s).
4. Ability to have Multiple administrators with varying levels of permission granted by Main Admin. system must be able to add up to 5 admins in future with vary level of permission granted.
5. Potential clients are not able to schedule online for 1st time appointment currently they see web site or advertising and call call our call-center in for 1st time appointment. After 1st appointment they will be sent a password via email or SMS text that allows them to log-in online to self schedule appointments The receive a password good for admins approved time period.
** It would be a nice tech enhancement but absolute requirement at this time -- to allow clients with passwords to schedule via mobile web enabled phone as well.
6. When a previous client is logged in to schedule and appointment he can decide to schedule appointment by location (with only a general description of studio location) & or Practitioner info from website or Reservation system description. Upon scheduling an appointment online the client only receives that actual physical address w/ Google type map upon confirmation; and only for the location that he has scheduled for. The system must throw up flags stop session and prevent another session until call in to reset appointment and receive new pass code/word; and ask clients that try to schedule multiple sessions to call in to our call center to complete appointment. So if client schedules and tries to reschedule without calling in to cancel he is unable to schedule at another location in that or upcoming session. until he calls in to be reset &/or set-up with a new appointment by call center.**
1. **Client will need 2 weeks to properly test system, and expects to be given full source codes; and will have code verified for any possible bugs, errors, & infringement violations.**
2. **This is not rocket science in 2010 . . yet for a reservation and booking system, the requirements are unique in placement.
3. **Proprietary code could be sold in future to another non-competing company with owner's permission.**
4. **We are requiring daily, & weekly reports with ability to test key components of system as project develops. Client is not wanting to force compliance with strict time for completion. This is tricky to build, and there may be unforeseen issues, we understand this. Interface for end users, and admin must be smooth and intuitive. There are elements that we have not considered that may come up. We are uniquely set for prompt communication and will reply immediately; and expect such from selected bidder . . if there are problems, or time for completion is not realistic . . then we expect to know the moment it is known by developer --so we can adjust our time-lines, and extend time for completion. Good communication is vital, and will be key to successful happy client who will sing praises, give good marks, and offer written testimonials and take real-time phone calls in support of developer. **
* **Developers that have below a 9.0 rating, a no lengthy history of sound completed projects with RAC, &/or or that do not have previous experience with projects similar to the nature of this will be not be considered.
* ** Developers that have repeated history of reports violations, or any hint of bad communication with clients will not be considered.**
***Thank You in Advance to the winning bidder, because you are part of a vision that has already happened . . we just need to catch up to it.
* Peace, & Profits,**
