The system I want to develop will work in the following way using a service like Twilio to handle the API
I plan to make a retail product that will contain labels with a unique number. Every package will have a different number.
When a user buys the package they are directed to a site (very basic) where they will enter their cell number and email. They will then attach the label with the unique number to their property.
Here's how it works!
User looses the property,
Finder sees the label on the property and sends a text containing the unique number to a phone number or short code.
the owner receives an automated text and email advising him that someone has found their property.
The owner and finder can sms anonymously then arrange to meet and exchange the property.
This will be for use in North America, users/subscribers will be low and build over time so it should be scalable.
Provide the necessary support to test and verify all aspects are working as expected.
Program language is up to the contractor, choose whatever you're best at.
Provide all code after project ends.
If you are able to provide these programming services required please advise what my cost would be and what our next step should be.
This project is for proof of concept so I am looking to have something very basic built to check the concept. Additional features can be added later
