Thank you for your consideration.
This project is to be performed for a mid-sized US-based property management firm. The firm is professionally managed, and well funded.
The final application will be hosted on a Linux [url removed, login to view] based i686 running Apache (unix) 1.3.37. It has installed: PHP 4.4.4 and PHP 5.2, Perl 5.8.7, Python, mySQL 4 and mySQL 5.0.27-standard, and postgre SQL. We would prefer a PHP 4 or 5-built application running on mySQL 5.
This application and modules can be built from scratch, or we can discuss it being built on a CMS such as Joomla.
Below is a summary description of the project. We have a spec sheet with more specific requirements. If you are interested in bidding, please contact us for more specific information. Please, do not include GUI design in your bid.
We will consider all bids, regardless of price. Extensive portfolio and references are required for consideration.
This property management site is to consist of three portals:
- The Prospect Portal
- The Resident Portal
- The Management Portal
Each portal contains several modules, and each should be designed to accommodate additional features to be developed in the future.
The Prospect Portal - this portal is the publicly accessible portion of the website, visible at the home page level. It is to contain the following modules: search for apartments module, view property information module, view apartment module, announcements module (to include an RSS feed).
The Resident Portal - this portal is accessible for authenticated users. It is to contain the following modules: one-time registration module, view billing/payment history module, order goods/services module (online store), FAQ module, community bulletin board module, apartment maintenance ticketing module.
The Management Portal - this portal is accessible for authenticated users. It is to contain the following modules: user admin module, property admin module, resident admin module, maintenance admin module, billing admin module, report generator module.
We plan to add the following features in a future release:
Owner Portal - building owners can log in and change their information, view financials and reports, and view attachments in PDF format.
Accounting System - a PHP based general ledger system to allow full online accounting. Will include a paperless document storage feature that will associate scanned PDF documents with transactions.
Winner of this phase will be invited to develop these future features as well.
There is also an opportunity to design the GUI for this project. It should include templating, as we want to brand this application for several different companies. If you are interested, please submit a separate request.
Thank you so much! We look forward to working with you.
