Project Description

I'm looking to create a SIMPLISTIC Cloud Based Web Application that will allow lawyers to manage all of their cases, their cases' deadlines, and will send them reminders to follow-up with hospitals and clients.

Right now, there's an issue in firms. Case management systems are too complex for many lawyers and it is causing them to miss out on the joys of having technology work for them to manage their practice. Not only that, but they are having issues dealing with remembering all of the deadlines and follow-ups that go on within a firm.

Each case for a lawyer may have 10-12 deadlines which are tasks that need to be completed so that a case may be completed successfully. Now multiply that by the 50-300 cases that a lawyer may have, then that's a LOT of deadlines to remember.

I wish to solve this core problem by working together with one of YOU to help save lawyer firms everywhere that lack a solution like this. I want to build a simplistic, case management system that can keep track of all their clients and cases in a database, while having the functionality of remembering all of their deadlines and other scheduling events.

Not only that, I wish to have a system that when they add a new case, there will be a case template system that will automatically PRE-SET the deadlines required on the calendar. One last feature is that it will remind users to follow up within a specific deadline every 2 weeks.

So to sum it up. I want the features to be:

- Client profile database (which will be linked to case profile)

- Case Profile database (which will be linked to client profile)

- Scheduling system which can not only let you schedule events, but deadlines, which indicate how many days you have left to do a task.

- Template system so that when adding a new case, when picking a template for type of case, it will already pre-set the deadlines in the calendar.

I’m not a developer and I’ve never done this before, so I’d like to know how you’d recommend that we build an application like this and how long you’d think it would take to build.

I do know that I would like to build this with Ruby on Rails and that I would like to use this template:

I've also made a video of the UI Mock-UP that I would like used in building this software, but I want it to be built through the template:

[url removed, login to view]

I would really like to get a quote on how much it would cost to build this that you see in the video and how long it would take. I am seeking someone to work full-time. I await your responses to help save lawyers everywhere. I repeat... WHAT I DESIRE IS A ROUGH QUOTE AT THE MOMENT. I would like to know now so that I could know how to continue with this project.
