Our system must provide a secure, user-friendly and professional looking (i.e., use high-charts analytics) cloud-based platform on which clients are guided through a set of input forms to capture key data into a central master database. A set of internal algorithms and logic trees will be applied to generate the key reports and action roadmap specific to each client. The generated source code must be of high quality, written in UK English with plenty of commentary such that it will be easy for a 3rd party to quickly understand and develop further the project at any stage should we so wish. There should be no hidden or black boxes of code. All 3rd party licenses used or referenced must be 100% legitimate, solely owned and transferrable to Alumna Ltd within the scope of this project.
There should be a separate database for each client, but all databases can reside on a common single hosted server. Subsequent development will leverage the growing volume of sector data, so the system needs to be configured to enable the future creation of research users who will be able to analyse consolidated data from all users. The build should also allow for the inclusion of trend indicators, benchmarking and a new report showing historical data over time. The dashboard and reporting layouts and content have already been created, but you are expected to contribute in terms of graphic design and flair to provide a professional look and feel to the product for both database and web site. The product needs to work on all main browsers, including on older versions, and the web site needs to be mobile compatible. SSL and regular system back-ups required.
