Basically, this is to revamp our website so that it has the functionality that we now require.
The main aspect of this site that will require someone with more advanced coding skills is the fact that we essentially need a booking system. We need a database that is easily updated by the admin that sets the amount of current inventory and then allows agents or public users to view our current calendar of events and available spaces within a particular trip and then be able to sign up and pay for the product. This should affect the available inventory in real time. We currently create google docs to manage our inventory, but it means that our admin or in some cases our agents must physically collect payment and then update the inventory. We need to allow the public user to be able to sign up remotely.
If you have read this much and are interested to learn more, then the code word that you can put as the first word of your bid should be Californiaexplorer.net. I will not even look at a bid that does not have this as the first word. The obvious reason is that I want to weed out all the automated responses. That is actually our existing website if you want to get an idea for what our company does.
In addition to the above, we want the website (or rather the database behind it) to be able to create reports that show how much business is coming from different agents, and other parameters such as how much business we are getting for specific trips and for specific times of the year.
I have included a text document with further details of the project.
