Targeted Calendars Media Group (TCMG) is looking for a mobile application that will be used as a calendar by university students on the 3 major mobile operating systems. The app will be a mobile version of a calendar that should be modeled in a fashion similar to the Blackberry Calendar or iCal – it must posses many of the same features as these mobile calendars (please refer to your Blackberry Calendar/iCal features/functions/options). The app should have a simple look & feel – user-friendly functionality is key.
The app must be able to display different time periods (i.e. daily, weekly, monthly) so that users can easily plan items for the future. Further, we will provide you with “Significant Dates” that will be pre-programmed into the calendar (i.e. Exam Week Dec. 10 – Jan. 30, Key Note Speaker Jan. 10, School Wide Event Nov. 20, etc.).
It must also have a function in which you can add recurring appointments (I.e. Geography Class, Monday & Wednesday, 6-9pm, September 1 – December 10). The ability to customize your calendar and add recurring/standing appointments (I.e. Classes) should be an option when the App is first opened/launched – as soon as you open the app for the first time, you should be asked if you would like to add your class schedule, extra-curricular activities, or appointments.
Lastly, we are looking to include daily discounts & coupons (In terms of format/style for the coupon/discount - we were thinking that it could be similar to creating an “All Day Event” on Blackberry Calendar, but pre-programmed into the calendar for students). For example, on Tuesdays, there will be a $10-off coupon for students – this will show up every Tuesday as an “All Day Event”.
We may need a maximum of 10 versions of this application. Each version will have different significant dates, logos, and colours. Therefore, we require 10 versions of the app, in all 3 major mobile operating systems. For this bid, please make your offer based on ONE mobile application.
For consideration, please submit the following:
- Screenshots of your proposed app
- A link to your portfolio
- Your Bid Price and Payment Structure
- Details of what your bid includes (ex. # of revisions, estimated time of completion)
- A Brief statement about why we should choose you
