We are a catering business. When we started our business, we looked for an application that we could use to help us automate our bookings, stock, production. We found nothing other than old, over-priced products that didn't match our needs. So we turned to KNACK, a cloud database and built our own.
For three years this has been fantastic, but as we grow further, we need more facilities than KNACK can offer us, and so we are thinking about redeveloping the application from scratch in php and MySQL or Amazon services or something else. These details are still to be decided. What we would like to do is to have the software so we can use it, but we can also sell it as a service to businesses like ours on a monthly fee model.
What we are looking for is a partner who can take what we've got now, replicate it, and extend it. It may be that we are looking for a small team with the right skills. Timescale will be determined by budget. We cannot just throw money at this project. We may be able to buy a weeks worth of development each month, or more, or less, and we expect it will take a year or more to complete.
If you feel you have the skills and knowledge to help us, we'd love to hear from you. Please give us examples of other complex applications that you have built, especially if they are SaaS model. We intend to pick a short list of possible partners and issue a full document and access to our existing system for you to give us a detailed proposal. Thank you.
