Sales persons quotation tool for multiple compute cloud based products
The application MUST form two parts, the interactive UI and a windows service process which runs all the time and is responsible for uploads/downloads
The applications must run on the following platforms
• Windows xp
• Windows 7
• Windows 8
If the product quotations the product requires excel/word etc this MUST NOT be version specific
There must be no reliance on any other product which requires licensing without prior agreement.
This needs to be a simple task bar tray icon app which runs in background and periodically checks a URL for an updated pricing file or application version, if it exists it will close the application (if open) and update.
It will also be responsible for uploading the pdf quote and also the quote details as stored locally to a central database so we are able to see centrally all quotes that are being generated by the sales people. This must be via “we only do” [url removed, login to view] control (license provided)
The windows UI will be the main program in use by the sales people for generating quotes and looking up pricing information. All pricing information will be taken from an encrypted pricing file provided as part of the update process service described above. Application must be capable of handling of the decyphering of price file (basically ensuring pricing file is not in a format which can be altered)
The first time the application is run it should ask for user information that is information like
How often to check for updates in minutes
This can then be saved to ini file. A “preferences” button or menu item should also be available in the UI to allow people to go back and change any of this detail after first run time.
Next is a welcome splash screen asking if we want to retrieve a previous quote or create a new one
If retrieve previous then show list of all previous quotes saved locally
If new then prompt for details on new screen for quotation
• Customer Name
• Customer Email
• Customer Phone
• Customer Address
Now we can present screen similar to original application which can show “access compute” as the default tab
For each of the relevant items in the areas they may be optional or exclusive. For example you can ONLY click basic monitoring OR advanced monitoring, not both.
Those check boxes anti virus for example must be default checked, if unchecked it must show a warning – you can see this from the existing application.
Each of the relevant boxes has a price associated which must be sourced from the .ini file. I would like that the ini files does not have a “plain text” description that makes sense i.e we should not call the anti virus cost “antivirus”
The user will select all relevant options, behind these options the prices are gained from the encrypted pricing file and calculations are made to show current price. An “Add” button will take the current configuration and add it to the item list box at the bottom of the screen.
Once completed the “next” button will take the user to the next tab, on the example above this is “AccessComms”, where the same process can be carried out, adding single or multiple selections via the add button into the list item box below which carries through onto each screen.
There should then be a summary tab showing the high level details of all selections added along with a total price, a “preview” button to view the pdf quotation and a “save and send” to attached to email (use mailto:)
Full brief in attached document.
No payment will be made until the full product with source code is delivered. This opportunity is a repost after i was let down by someone hired on odesk.
