Hotel booking tool for travelcompany

DTool that helps direct selling travel agent to manage hotelbookings.

I. your company

a. I am looking for a company that has resources and skilled programmers. I am developing a project that will take probably 2000 or 3000 manhours to build, however I need it do be done in approximately 6 months. To get started and see if you have the resources and experiences to work on this project I formulate a simple part of the project.

b. Your company has at least 6+ skilled programmers from which 2 or 3 can work on this project full time.

c. Skills needed are [xml forms implementation] [real time xml serverrequests on availability and booking]

[MySQL database construction] [php, java and Ajax to build website around functionality] [CSS design implementation]

[PrestaShop or Joomla knowledge]

since we feel it is not necessary to invent the wheel all over again and it for us has advantages to work with industry standards]

II. Working together I am looking for a long term relationship, so also please also quote me your hourly prices and experience of your senior and junior workers. Please provide me with your expertise in work for Travel industry (hotel / flight booking).

III. Working Rules

- Milestonesystem will be strictly enforced, I will not release any milestone payment if no code or software received! So if you are in urgent need of money then do not reflect.

- Codes need to be delivered unencrypted and fully accessible.

- In case of .exe tools we will receive the sourcecode as well so it enables us to alter code at any time

- Code becomes OUR property, and cannot be resold or redistributed by programmer.

IV This project

• Develop database that regularly imports and updates hoteldata from 5 consolidators (each of them have a few 100 to a few 1000 hotels) It also holds our own data from hotels we sell directly. Please note that dataformats from 4 consolidators is different. Also note that the data needs to be refreshed every week or so. Furthermore later on we want to be flexible adding more consolidators.

- From the (USA based) hotels I want the data connected to geogr. coordinates (extracted from zipcode or exact hotelcoordinates) (later for mapping purposes)

- A few content fields for these hotels to add own info and images and google tags

- A table that defines each hotel as part of a trip. iE hotel XYZ can be part of trip A for 1 night, trip B for 3 nights and part of trip C for 2 nights.

- Pricing is mostly done through xml requests (consolidator real time server request), but for own hotels we need a lookup for current pricing on specific date. Also high, average and low prices should be table fields.

- Next to pricing there is also 2 fields for taxes etc. needed {percentage} {fixed} and 1 surcharge field with surcharge name and surcharge unit (per person per night, per room per stay, per person per stay, per roomnight per stay).

- Hotels can have different room types, room layouts or services included. This should not cause a problem since they can be defined as different products under general description.

•Develop local desktoptool (VB or JAVA) that connects to online database to manage content of hotels

Important: the tool should also be able to add own hotels and manage the own hotel data +

•Develop an online tool that can manage bookings, rebookings, cancellations and allotments. This tool needs to do some frequent backgroundchecks that lead to cancellation / new booking as well. All these can be executed through xml processes.

- Automatic generation of vouchers as pdf / Automail function

- Generate file with purchasecosts and selling price and margin calculations - later to connect to bookkeeping tables.

- Allotment hotels can have blackout dates, daily pricing, different pricing

- Please note that allotments and prices are always related to date and/or day and can differ from day to day.

- An engine that checks regularly for lower pricing elsewhere
