We have a client who currently uses PDF Files and Adobe acrobat to edit them.
Each of their consultants carries a notebook with Acrobat installed to edit and save these PDFs. They want to move from Laptops and Acrobat to tablets (3G/4G connected) with web based input and storage to central MYSQL database.
We have current PDFs that need to be converted to some form of HTML to allow this to occur.
The current process is that the consultant enters the data on the PDF, saves it and sends it to Head Office, who re-edit and process the invoice. They want to have the MYSQL instant storage so Head Office get notified of a new 'entry' and can edit the data instantly and process the information adding appropriate fields etc.
ok.. thank you all for your interest in this project, i have an update from our client regarding the requirements for it.
the changes to this initial scope are only minor, and are :
- Head office no longer requires to edit data held in the mysql database.
- The data entered into MYSQL needs to be searchable by name/address/facility
- They need to be able to then re-open this document and view the contents in the future, and make modifications that are then saved into a new version of the document (we require old versions as well though in database to be searchable)
- we will provide hosting space / mysql instance with all access.
We will be making a decision based on our shortlist of applicants for this project over the next 3 days, so should be able to award the project on Monday next week (its friday here now).
Thanks to everyone once again.
