I have a fairly complex project that I would like to put together. It involves, an e-commerce web site, tying that into individual point of sale systems, tracking the inventories of individual locations and making this inventory available to sell by other participating locations. It also involves a system for tracking repairs with different levels of access (stores, service techs, consumers). In addition it will involve accounting for sales and commissions between the participants.
I already have the ability to perform each of these tasks independently but I am trying to tie them all together into one cohesive program.
While I know exactly what I want I'm having a slightly difficult time quantifying it so before the project actually begins I will want to communicate extensively with my chosen freelancer about exactly what I need and their ability to deliver it. Of course I understand that this makes it hard to bid on the job so I guess I am looking for competitive hourly rates as well as a demonstrated ability to communicate in non techy english when describing the plan and the time budget
