This should be a simple project for a knowledgable individual in ColdFusion. I will provide some sample sites so those interested in bidding can get a better idea of what it is we need.
The customer front end will allow user to login view, print and make a payment and submit a message to the admin. Payment methods are PayPal and checks for the time being.
The administrative backend should allow the following: add invoice, edit invoice, void invoice, invoice searching, customer search, managing of payment options (PayPal account information) "Bulk Customer Emailing and/or Email Customer"; automatic payment posting; print/save to PDF; small messaging module for customer/admin communications; automatic bulk payment reminders for past due invoices.
Add Invoice: I would like to be able to "manage" the incremental alpha/numeric invoice number. (optional if possible)
Edit/Void Invoices should be straight forward. I do not want to delete any invoices from the database. Any edited invoices will warrant an automatic email to the customer.
Searching by invoice and or customer is a gimme. The internal messaging module can be primitive. Customer submits question; admin answers it. When customer logs in; post notice that a message is waiting, etc. This is separate from the BULK CUSTOMER EMAIL. ANY EMAIL OR MESSAGING FEATURES ARE STRICTLY FOR CUSTOMERS ONLY. UNSOLICITED EMAIL WILL NOT BE SENT. EMAIL/MESSAGING MODULE WILL ONLY ALLOW EMAILS SENT TO CUSTOMERS WHO HAVE A NEW INVOICE, EDITED INVOICE OR PAST DUE INVOICES.
<[url removed, login to view]> would be the best example yet of what I want to build off of. This application must be generic as it will be used by a variety of small businesses I manage. ALSO, the code MUST be well commented and instructions on setup/routines etc must be added at the end of the project.
1) Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.
2) Deliverables must be in ready-to-run condition, as follows (depending on the nature of the deliverables):
a) For web sites or other server-side deliverables intended to only ever exist in one place in the Buyer's environment--Deliverables must be installed by the Seller in ready-to-run condition in the Buyer's environment.
b) For all others including desktop software or software the buyer intends to distribute: A software installation package that will install the software in ready-to-run condition on the platform(s) specified in this bid request.
3) All deliverables will be considered "work made for hire" under U.S. Copyright law. Buyer will receive exclusive and complete copyrights to all work purchased. (No GPL, GNU, 3rd party components, etc. unless all copyright ramifications are explained AND AGREED TO by the buyer on the site per the coder's Seller Legal Agreement).
4) MUST BE GENERIC ENOUGH AND EASILY CONFIGURABLE FOR OTHER SITES
Application will run on Windows Servers running II5 or later.
Must be compatible with IE,NetScape and Firefox.
Must be compatible with ColdFusion Server 6.1 and later (including MX versions) This is a must and ColdFusion 5 should also be considered.
Should be flexible to either support an ACCESS OR MYSQL database. This project should be developed for use with MS ACCESS 2000 or later. However due to potential storage issues, converstion to MySQL should be available.
