We are looking for someone to design the layout of our software! I will try and make the rest of this description as simple as possible.
Purpose of the software?
Our software is focused on letting the user browse through large amounts of data about potential customers. The user will log into the software, and choose a few parameters. Then they will be presented with information based off of the large amounts of data within our database.
[please take a look at the attached xls spreadsheet]
The spreadsheet shows example data that is in our database.
What type of data is this?
This is data about people and what their book preferences are. Each IP address is linked to a person we have surveyed (thousands) and the information is used to judge what their similar book preferences will be.
Who are our users?
The users are book publishers who want to know which people will be most likely interested in purchasing their books.
What do we want our users to see?
We want them to see in a very simple way, who is most likely going to meet their criteria for a good customer.
A good website to compare this functionality to is: [url removed, login to view]
A user of Zillow will proceed to the website and enter in a few pieces of information. Such as: A location within the country or a Price range.
After entering in the parameters, the user will then be taken the next page where the search results are presented to them.
We are looking for similar usability. We want the user to be able to enter in a parameter or multiple parameters, then they will be taken to the next page.
Please feel free to ask any and all questions possible. Also, send a PM with your bid briefly describing the basic layout you would envision.
