Below is a summary of what you've entered in the requirements interview. If any of the below is incorrect, please use your browser's "back" button to change it.
Brief summary: My company currently provides online reputation defense services to individuals and small companies. I manually utilize google alerts and blog alerts to watch for mention of clients names. I want to build a custom front end app that will be presented on the website through login. This "front end" will agrigate data from various alert sites and reflect results to my clients.
I need the widget built and integrated into my site, a client log in application, the client graphic component built and a backend reporting function. I have a designer that can build the "face" if you don't have an interest in it.
Project Type: What kind of work do you need done?
Software related (Includes desktop applications and internet websites)
Project Parts: What do you want the seller to do on this project?
Requirements: The seller will analyze the problem and propose a software-based solution to the problem.
Programming: The programmer will take the requirements and translate them into the language of the computer (and test it).
User installation: The installer will move the software from the place it was created (which is called the development or QC environment) to where you will use it (which is called the production environment). The installer then tests the software to make sure that the installation was done properly and completely.
Req. Doc. Type: What kind of documentation do you want for this project?
Formal documentation - After talking back and forth, the seller creates a formal document and/or prototype, as follows:
Prototype: The analyst will create a non-working mockup of all pages/screens in the final software. Creating a prototype makes it easier for the user to visualize the final software, and reduces misunderstandings.
Requirements Document: The analyst will create a document describing everything the final software will do (other than what is documented in the prototype...if the buyer required one).
Program Type: What kind of software should the seller create (and/or install)?
An internet web-site: This software runs on a web server and users will access it using their internet browser.
Internet web-site info
Design and functionality: What does the programming of this project involve?
Program Functionality: Making the website "work".
Modeling another site: Do you wish to model another site? Yes:
[url removed, login to view] and follow on pages for the application.
Size of website: How many pages need to be created/edited in this website?
I don't know.
I believe that it will be less then 15 pages
Programming Language: What programming language(s) do you want your website written in?
I don't know what language (and need the programmer's assistance to suggest it).
Database: Will this project include a database?
I'm not sure (and need the programmer to advise me).
I don't have an active CRM in place. I will need to store client results and retrieve them.
Browser Type(s)/Version(s): Which browser/version combinations must this website support?
Server Hosting Environment: What is your server hosting environment?
I have a server at a 3rd party hosting company.
The name of the hosting company is: godaddy
The server's shared/dedicated status is: Shared with other people.
Component Compatibility Protection:
Sometimes a programmer may create features on the website that rely on componentswhich work fine on their own server, but won't work with your 3rd party hosting company's server. There are many reasons for this including version incompatibility, restricted permissions, etc... Rent A Coder normally requires that the programmer verify in advance that your 3rd party hosting provider will support the components. If they do not, then they are responsible for any incompatibilities, rather than you. Do you want this protection on your project?
Yes, I require the programmer to query my hosting company in advance, to ensure that they support all components which the coder uses in the final solution (including supporting the anticipated version #s, allowing components to run under their potentially restricted security model, etc.)
Server Hosting Environment: Will the coder develop "live" on your server?
No. The programmer is responsible for creating their own development and/or qc environment.
Physical installation: Who will perform the physical installation?
The programmer will perform the physical installation, and will be given all necessary permissions to do so.
Legal: 1) I require complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done (so that I may modify it in the future).
2) Deliverables must be in ready-to-run condition as follows (depending on the nature of the deliverables):
2a) Any website server-side deliverables must be installed by the Seller in ready-to-run condition in the Buyer's environment.
2b) All other software (including but not limited to any desktop software or software the buyer intends to distribute) must include a software installation package that will install the software in ready-to-run condition on the platform(s) specified in this bid request (unless specified elsewhere by the Buyer).
3) All deliverables will be considered "work made for hire" under U.S. Copyright law. Buyer will receive exclusive and complete copyrights to all work purchased.
3b) No part of the deliverable may contain any copyright restricted 3rd party components (including GPL, GNU, Copyleft, etc.) unless all copyright ramifications are explained AND AGREED TO by the buyer on the site per the seller's Seller Legal Agreement.
