I'm looking for a smart, honest and capable developer to establish an API interface from a with Manufacturers Ordering Website, which needs to be able to work with Google Docs, Website Etc.
The manufacturer's API website takes in orders for fashion garments including measurements, style options, fabric choices etc. I put orders through the manufacturers site but this requires physical inputting of all order details which is very time consuming.
Currently my orders are summarised through Google Docs which outlines customers choices, and I would like this to go straight to the manufacturer's API site without requiring separate manual data entry. Other order details are currently stored on excel and this also needs to go into the manufactures websites order details. However I am flexible with what kind of interface is used to first obtain the customers order inputs, eg I have my own website which could be the initial interface.
Outline of steps is as follows (business is a made to measure suits, shirts business):
A. I physically meet with client and write down their order details through a Google Word Doc (Fabric details, Button choice etc..)
B. I also take measurements and store them in excel (eg chest measurements, leg, arms etc)
C. I then log into the manufacturers API website, and based on the Google Doc and Excel measurements individually input the order details in. There are many inputs so it take a lot of time, and also is prone to error - THIS IS A BIG PROBLEM.
I would like to move to:
i) I store details as per A and B above (or through my own website).
ii)After I press a "submit" button, this actually translates into the manufacturers website and creates the orders exactly as per A and B.
iii) Order will also automatically submit in manufacturers site and so the suit/shirt production process starts.
The end system needs to be 100% perfect in its functioning with no errors.
I have documents from the manufacturer which outlines the technical requirements and can share that later. I can also use the templates I currently use now.
Can you please respond with:
1. Do you have experience with this type of work and do you think you have the technical skills to complete.
2. Can you please quote on a fixed price basis, payable at completion of project what kind of indicative cost you would propose for this?
3. What issues do you see with this project
4. What kind of solution would you propose (be as detailed as possible).
Look forward to hearing and working with you.
