I need to get a quotation system integrated into a very small database of foods.
The way i want it to work is that it must flow from page to page
Very very tiny budget on this and the website already exists so the coder will be fitting all this and deploying it to fit in with the existing html site which can be converted to php if needed to ease coding. so the front end is ready
client goes to website and clicks on view price lists and they get presented with a search box to search for the specific items or seach through set menus to view prices there and then.
Client wants to get a quote.
Client would be able to set up an account to save their quote
Client can request a quote from inside the account they set up
client can email a pdf of the quote to themselves or email the quote to others
I will want to harvest the email addresses they enter when they send the email to themselves with the quote.
Main access panel I want ability to
1. The harvested emailss will recieve a follow up email about 3 days after they get a quote to offer them a more personalised quote and or reduced prices if they book the job.
the first page will ask them to select the number of guests and or heads
the 2nd page will ask what type of foods and again a search box when they type a meal name it will find it and display the price and image of that meal and a box for them to select how many people they want that meal for
the page with the foods will have to recur with the search box and show their choices in a box on the right
and continue until when they check the box to say - finished choosing meals eg. next or done
they can click a box to select to remove meals or alter number of guests.
then the next page asks about staff, then equipment, then crockery/plates and so on till the end and it will ask them about delivery/venue location to calculate cost of delivery and ask them if they want to come collect their order.
It will also ask if they want to make this a recurring order or regular order
It will ask if they want packed meals, etc etc..
where they get the option to send a booking request or email quote and
if they select to make a booking request it must ask them for contact details and email details. once done
this prompts them to set up an account to save their quote/wishlistquote and explains that this will allow them to keep an eye on their booking and to get further discounts and special tasting session offers.
If they ask for an email of quote or booking request, once this is actioned on admin panel there will be scope to post the booking confirmation to their account they set up and to request a deposit payment.
there will be an automated system to tell them the deadlines for payment.
they will also have option to book discounted tasting session from within their account as well
immediately they open the account an email goes to them to welcome them,
after 3 days we send them a reminder email offering money off
after another week etc
In The last page of the quote system will ask them to select type of event, time or date of event, give location, name etc, in this part, i want to style it so that the request for personal information is as limited as possible and buried creatively within other requests, such as colour theme, type of event etc.
When they sign up for the account or to email themselves the quote must accept terms and conditions for service provision and site toc etc.
XX ADD area for registration to database for chef, waiters etc.
Add recipe database.
Site is in html.
if using a cms, you would have to move or fit design to the cms.
i don't like new wordpress 3.5 the kitchen sink is gone.
