The software I am looking for should not depend on the internet. It is separate from the internet. The data collected by the software will be used to send sms news alert; as bulk sms to the subscribers through an sms gateway software which operates from the internet (I will provide the sms gateway software)
The software I am looking for is like a scheduler. -It should be downloaded into the computer like any other software. --A fixed wireless CDMA phone is connected to the desktop computer to receive subscriber’s sms.
PREFERED SERVICE CODE
I want to provide news alerts in the following categories;-
SOCCER,CODE IS SO
SPORTS,CODE IS SP
ENTERTAINMENT,CODE IS EN
BUSINESS,CODE IS BU
STOCKS/CURRENCIES,CODE IS SC
GENERAL NEWS,CODE IS GN
(There could be provision for other categories)
When a subscriber gets my scratch card, they scratch it, they see a serial/pin number inside. They then decide which of the preferred service they want.
They then subscribe by sending me an sms in this format - Serial/pin number + preferred service code + their phone number SENT to the phone number of the CDMA phone(a regular phone number e.g. 2341023456765)
EXAMPLE- 657769352108+BU+2341024567858 SENT TO 2341023456765(My CDMA phone) THE SOFTWARE SEES ALL OF THIS ACTION.
-The mobile CDMA phone is connected to the computer. -When sms messages come from my subscribers (who have scratched the recharge cards and sms the pin number in the card with the code for their preferred service to the phone), The software checks/authenticates the serial/PIN number and makes sure it is our own saved already inside the software (this means we have already loaded the software with pin numbers, I can generate and load the system/software with the serial/PIN numbers)
After authenticating the pin number, The subscribers phone number is saved The subscriber's phone number is then arranged in a group with all other numbers that selected that particular preferred service. The software then schedules any accepted number/subscriber to be in each group for only x day’s validity (e.g. 30 days).
After that number of validity days the number/subscriber is automatically removed from the group by the software, but still saved in the database. There should also be a provision for scheduling each of the number/subscriber to receive news alert for x number of times a day (e.g. 1, 2, 5 times a day) during the validity period.
NOW that the software has done its job, I will then manually upload the data of the different groups, scheduled into my own sms gateway software. You don’t have to provide the sms gateway software. I will take care of that myself.
All you have to do is design the software to perform the above tasks. I will provide the hardware like PC and CDMA phone. I will also provide the sms gateway software.
I hope I have explained this clearly. Thanks.
