Social Networking/Review Website

Budget N/A

Average Bid $6832

***** Below is a summary of our project. For detailed info, please see the attached Request for Proposal document *****

We are a startup focused on delivering a vibrant community around a specific niche’s products and issues (to be disclosed to selected vendor after NDA is signed). The site will combine the best of social networks, question and answer sites and online product review sites.

We have completed the visual design and layout for each major page in the website. We have a non-functional prototype to demonstrate basic user flows and interactions, as well as content samples. We will provide the front-end HTML/CSS and images for these pages. We will not expect the developer to provide any design services -- any design needs that are not already provided will be requested and provided by us.

We need total back-end development and implementation for a social networking website that is database driven, including full testing and site launch. The site will include the following basic features:
- Product Reviews
- Questions & Answers (similar to Yahoo Answers model)
- Simple Poll/Survey System (similar to [url removed, login to view] model)
- Total site search with autocomplete
- User accounts registration & login
- User Profiles
- "Friend" functionality
- Photo Gallery
- Simple messaging system
- Site admin tool that is web-based


Please provide your detailed estimate on the timeline, including major milestones along the way. We would like to get started ASAP (in January), with an initial launch by March 30, 2008.

    Novi Sad,  Serbia

    TIAC group is a software company, established in 2004 in University City of Novi Sad, Serbia, but it exists as an informal group since 2001. Through time our company has grown and today it employs some 15 developers. Our areas of work range from software development and optimization software to software process improvement. The mission of our company is the application of software project management and software quality assurance in software development, together with providing consulting services in this area. Our goal is to achieve high standard software process that will assure high quality development. In the following years, we expect the success and growth on domestic market as well as the growing presence on European and other international markets. We strongly believe that in ten years period our company will become a leading consulting expert in the field of project management and IT technologies in South-eastern Europe. Our software development process is based on CMMI® model, but we have extended it and implemented not only on the project and operative levels, but also on the business level to obtain what we call TIAC Business Model. What this really means for our clients is that this value is directly manifested in quality of our services, stability of products and client satisfaction. In our work, we have been engaged on projects from the following domains so far: web development, finance, transport, government, NGO, oil and petrochemical, SME general. We are offering two outsourcing Models: Model Onsite-offshore Onsite-offshore model means that the home team is located at TIAC’s premisses, while the POM (project onsite manager) is located onsite with the customer. This model gives best results when the outsourcing service provider and the customer companies are in the same or near time zones (GMT to GMT+2). Advantages of this type of model: - onsite cost savings, - effective use of TIAC’s software process, - scalability of the home team, - facilitated logistics. This model benefits from two modes of work by using the adaptation of CMMI® IPPD: the direct work with the customer onsite and extension of the local software team. Model Offsite-offshore This is the classic offshore outsourcing project, where the entire development team is located at our premises. This type of project offers bigger savings and we are minimizing the risk using a good process model.
