We need an application for data exchange between field staff and office. Field staff view data collected from the office back-end and from one or two Internet sources. Field staff also fill-out forms on an iPad/Android-Pad and need to send this back to the office back-end. The application needs to work in the store-and-forward mode, that is to syncronise with the office system whenever a mobile connection is available. The office back-end is a SQL server database. There is an application already which reads data from the database and stores data into the same database.
You only need to develop the front end - the mobile app.
The initial project is for one such application, but we may need up to 12 similar customised apps in the near future (12 months).
For this project we need iPad development, but if you can develop for Android-Pads also, it is an added bonus.
A description/spec will be provided to the short-listed developers.
Please quote some of your past projects and provide a reference client that we could call.
