The Software is a web-based event management database system designed with Latex and
Sequel coding languages that integrates and automates scheduling, reporting, and accounting.
It offers a broad range of event management features such as event templates with date/time
offsets, event request letters, event confirmation, program specification letters (i.e., welcome
letters), contact information, and the automatic generation of various reports (e.g., room lists,
rosters, name tags, meal sign-up sheets). Event-specific data types consist of lodging, dining,
touring, lectures, meeting rooms, coordinators, and transportation, each of which are program
specific. Vendor-specific data consist of resources, bookings, memoranda of understanding,
invoices, and pricing. Each of these event- and vendor-specific data types can be analyzed
through several view screens to ensure all events are secured in a timely fashion. The Software
would be a useful database for any event management business, including tour, hotel and
restaurant management companies.
The job that needs to be done: Implement Mobile Compatibility with Website:
Implementing mobile compatibility allows the software to be used on mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. This functionality would be useful for clients who would be able to take registration of events mobile. For instance, at an event a staff member could take their iPad and start registering customers for a conference if the line got to long at the registration table. Thus taking some of the burden off of stationary staff at the table and helping to expedite the process for customers. Other features of going mobile is allowing on the go customers to register for events on their smartphone. For example, a family on vacation may see a clients brochure and want to register for the event while they run out the door of their hotel. All they need to do is scan the QR code with their phone and it takes them to the website to register for an event.
A rough estimate is needed for the amount hours needed to incorporate this functionality in the Software.
