We are looking for a developer to complete Phase 1 of a web application project. If Phase 1 is completed well, more work will follow immediately. All development tools used need to be redistributable in a commercial software application at the completion of all phases.
Phase 1 project description: Automate data input from vendor provided .csv or .xls files into a custom built database. Vendor files contain similar product data but may be labeled and placed differently in each file. For instance, one vendor may label a product number as “Prod. No.” in column 2 of their file and another vendor may label it “Product ID” in column 8 of their file. Sample vendor .xls files and an excel datasheet will be provided for your use.
Phase 1 steps:
1) Create database with the following fields: Month/Year, Product Number, Product Name, Salesperson, Net Quantity Sold, Country Code, Commissions Paid
2) Automate data input of each field from sample vendor files
3) Utilize a web application framework with coding standards as you and/or others will need to build upon Phase 1 to complete the final web application project and a framework makes that much easier
4) Provide ability to test functionality on a development webserver
To separate you from other programmers who randomly respond to all new postings, please include the following text as the first line of your response, “I am interested in working on your project.” Please provide a time and cost estimate to complete Phase 1 in your response.
