Project Details: There are portions of our customer-quoting process which are pretty systematic, and quite boring/tedious. This sounds like the perfect job for a program
more detailed than this (and I'll save those details for a later discussion)
, but basically, it involves getting the requirements spreadsheets (in CSV format)
from our customers, uploading them into a program, and having the program capture pricing from our vendors websites. From there, it will calculate the price that we will quote our customer, and provide it in a quote spreadsheet (in CSV format)
Payment Amount: Unknown, but certainly more than $1000.00. I need to go through it with someone and get an estimate.
Payment method/ details: Check or credit/debit card. Progress payments can be accommodated.
Additional Info: Local programmers would obviously have a leg-up in applying for the job, but all domestic programmers will get serious consideration. Dealing with international time differences is something I would prefer to avoid, but if I'm wowed, nothing is impossible.
I prefer this to largely be in PHP (since that's what I'm most familiar with and would be easiest for me to grow with)
, but anything which can do the job and run on our webserver will be acceptable.
Lastly, we need a capable
programmer who can get this done quickly.
If you do not have some real experience with web-scrapping and CSV file handling, please save your application for one of our later projects.
Time is an issue.
