That's right, I'm looking for one THE best of the best to help build a simple Cloud Web-Based SaaS Software that will allow painters to keep track of working hours of employees when they're out in the field, and also be able to schedule employees to jobs as they arise, and easily manipulate scheduled dates as needed when complications arise. I want it to be built in Ruby because I know it will be faster that way.
Now-a-days, many painters have to use physical time sheets to keep track of hours, but it's a hassle. So I want to make it all digital where the employee can simply clock into work from their droid or iphone, and this information of when he or she clocked in will be stored into the computer side of the software. Then at the end of the work week, it can spit out a pdf showing every employee's hours worked that week.
As for the scheduling part of this software... Most Job Shift scheduling software that's out there, is mainly only geared towards businesses where the employees go to the same place every time. Painting and contracting businesses in general usually send their employees out to multiple different places, and then on top of that, those places are open to change at any time. There's currently no scheduling system that can account for multiple locations, multiple teams of employees, and an easy way to change locations of individual or multiple employees if needed. I want to build something to solve that.
I've talked to and built relationships with multiple painters that want a software such as the one I'm proposing to help their businesses. Many people WILL be using the software you build after you make it. So I'm looking for a strong developer who is proficient in Ruby, and Web software development to work with to build this.
I took the liberty of actually sketching out the UI in a program called Balsamiq, and recording myself walking through it and going more in-depth of what I want on Youtube here (Make sure Annotations are on, and to put the video on high quality):
I also would like the software built upon this template to save the amount of hours needed to build this.:
I put up the UI and template to help you guys give me a reasonable quote to the best of your ability on how many hours, and how much it will cost to build this, so of course I expect you to check out both links before you give a quote.
Also, to make sure that I only interview people who have actually read this, make sure when you respond to this, to put "Let's do this." As the first words of your response. This will let me know that you didn't just copy and paste something and not actually look this over.
While I have the full money needed to build this, that doesn't mean that I'm willing to pay just any price. This is why when you give a quote, I would like an explanation of how you got to that. It doesn't have to be super detailed, as we will go into that on the interview, but it will help me understand how you got to that amount.
I repeat. I would like a rough quote in your response on the amount of hours you feel it would take.
Can't wait to see your responses!
