Specifications for: [url removed, login to view] / [url removed, login to view]
Vacation Rental site needed with front and back end. Database needs to handle hundreds of hits at once. Look and design of site should closely resemble [url removed, login to view] with our own content & graphics. Will need flash driven interactive map that allows the user to choose a country, state, region, and finally city similar toVayama.com. Our property search box will be where Vayama’s “Find a Flight’ box is but will only need to search our database for properties and not interact with the flash map. We will provide all map graphics to use.
Searched listings will be displayed similar to [url removed, login to view] & [url removed, login to view]
with photos video, and brief descriptions and will provide the option to filter the search further like [url removed, login to view];cityid=cty-661diews4-2006-06-30&page=1
using Type, Bedrooms, Occupancy, Price, etc. Search results should identify searches even if they are misspelled (closest matches).
Members who post their property will have a login/password to access their personal page where they will have the ability to view detailed statistics for their rental page, delete/upload photos & video, add or edit descriptions, update their personal availability calendar, add search tags to their rental page, etc. New postings will need to be ‘confirmed’ by us before they go “live”, so we will need an email sent to us notifying of the posting as well as a way to accept it to go “live” or decline it. Example of the “personal availability calendar” we are looking for can be found here [url removed, login to view];cid=5 Whether the calendar is built in Flash or whatever we will leave up to you. Member will be updating it themselves through their personal rental page.
Members will have the ability to upload videos similar to the process youtube uses to upload theirs. We want it to be very simple to use and user friendly.
There will also need to be a place on each member’s page that allows past renters to add comments. Member will need to have the option to post their reply to comments as well.
Members will be able to post their property for free for now but we will need the credit card payment option (using paypal’s credit card service) setup for future use.
Site needs to be setup for SEO. This is VERY important.
All communications through members must go through our site to mask their contact information. Copies of all emails sent must be sent to administrator as well.
We also will need a front end interface that will allow us to search through our database of members. We’ll need a search feature to filter by various criteria.
We WILL need to see examples of your past work and you must have a high feedback rating. This must be completed in a timely manner (3 to 4 weeks or so). Prefer communication through MSN messenger & email.
Site needs to be clean and professional. We KNOW the difference between good & bad web design and expect the best.
We will use the winning bidder of this project for our 4 other websites that we will be developing over the next couple of months.
