We have a PHP MYSQL databases driven application that is used for tracking training and development (similar to a learning management system)
We enjoyed an excellent relationship with our previous partner for 6+ years. They have sold their business and we are looking to establish a new long term partnership with an offshore development organization. We are not looking for a single freelancer or a freelancer and a couple of subcontractors. We are looking for a registered, dedicated organization.
We will start with a very small small report project to see how we can work together. This project will take some of our existing code and change it from a page display format to a report format that will be e mailed. This is a minimal project that we want to use as a basis for seeing how the relationship will work.
Based on demand, we are expecting to need significant development assistance in the next year.
Our application includes the following technologies:
1.) Strong object oriented PHP programming with theme templates (we use a lot of PHP in our HTML code to present the client interface)
2.) Extensive database integration and processing using MySQL
4.) E commerce using [url removed, login to view] as the provider.
5.) Intuitive easy to use application interface.
Since this goes beyond this small project, we have several requirements. If you don’t meet 90% of these, please do not submit a bid.
Please tell us how you meet each of these requirements in your bid submission...
1.) Excellent written and spoken English. You may occasionally need to participate in teleconferences. We work primarily with Skype.
2.) At least three external client references that we can call and discuss your work. These projects must include most or all of the technologies listed above together in the same project, preferably for an existing application that you enhanced.
3.) Demonstrated ability to come up to speed quickly on an existing application. This is critical to the success of this relations.
4.) A documented development process and ability to update us easily on the status of all projects.
5.) You must have a group of developers employed by your company.
6.) Work with LDAP authentication will be a plus.
I know we are asking a lot, but our last development partner benefited greatly in the 6 years we worked together.(payments were five figures plus)
Again, please if you can’t meet all of the requirements, don’t submit a bid
We look forward to hearing from you
