My customer has a PDF sent to them on a regular basis which has timesheet details for a 1,000 employees. They manually create a spreadsheet that is then input into the Opera Payroll system.
For the remaining employees the company has a Clocking system which produces a report which is also manually collated and entered into the Payroll system.
The customer is looking to create an automated system that will extract information from the PDF and the clocking system and produce a data file which can be automatically or manually entered into the Opera Payroll system.
The solution delivered needs to be able to be run within a Windows environment and must be simple enough to be used by a standard user. Documentation will be required to support the solution and the language is English.
Prior experience in creating simple interface systems is required with prior experience of extracting information from PDF. Good strong English will be required to support project communication and documentation.
Interface information (the pdf and the clocking system) will be provided as input to the process.
There is also an expectation of some ongoing support for this solution and you will need to demonstrate availability.
The customer has not given a go ahead for the work as they are unsure of price. So stage 1 is to gain an assessment of cost prior to having a committed customer therefore this activity may take place next month.
