The rise of user submitted review sites such as Trip Advisor has led to a significant change in customer empowerment and after extensive research it is our view that there is an under represented demand in the market for customers to be able to review hair and beauty based establishments in a similar way to Trip Advisor.
It is our intention to become that de facto site initially within the UK and then moving internationally for such reviews.
We are seeking a company that we can develop a close and long term working relationship with to develop our ideas and exploit this potential opportunity.
From a high level we are seeking the development of the new web site / web application including:
? Front End Development - Look and feel, user experience
? Back End Development - Core web application
? Database - Backend database development
We are technology agnostic but speed of development and scalability of the architecture are vital. The chosen organisation must be able to develop the presentation layer to give the end user a modern, compelling and easy to use experience; along with developing the underlying application and data storage to be flexible, robust, maintainable and secure.
Scalability and transaction throughput will be important for the solution as we would expect the site in its initial architecture to handle over 25,000 visitors per day, hold 23,000 salon details and some 100,000+ user reviews.
We have developed detailed example ideas for the project which we hope will allow you to understand our general approach. Further information, use cases, data models etc can be provided.
The following is provided to help you understand the requirement more clearly, however we are expecting an initial requirements clarification process so that our requirements are properly understood.
