We need to extract data from a point-of-sale software system that has very limited data export functions and no API. The data we want to extract is only available from human readable displays (in a web browser). We need a standalone executable (or a chrome extension) running on Windows (preferred) or Mac that can log in to our web based POS system, operate the active elements on a display to get to another display and then “scrape” the data from the display. Choice of executable would be based on lowest cost/fastest time to develop. It’s a stop gap tool.
I have a detailed spec available for the data extraction tool but do not want to post it because of confidentiality concerns. The initial project is to develop a tool we can use to extract our historical data and then run it on a daily basis to extract each new day of data.
Ideally, we are looking for a single talented person or small team (2-4 people) who can develop this tool and then work with us to develop a replacement for the point-of-sale system that can be expanded over time into an enterprise resource system for a retail business with multiple locations.
Our goal for the larger system work is to create a system for our business and then license it to similar businesses.
We want to develop this system on a major platform such as Salesforce, Oracle, AWS, etc. where most of the work is server based and display screens are PCs and tablets.
I specified this as a large project but the standalone tool is likely smaller and the eventual goal is a much larger project developed over time with on going maintenance and development work.
