I am looking for developers and designers to help create a small business intelligence/reporting website. The financial data will consist of scouring a local database consisting of publicly traded companies and their balance sheets. The numbers and metrics will already be pre-calculated in a postgresql based database (greenplum), we simply need to provide this information in a quick and presentable way to users.
The goal is to have a simplified approach for users to pull this information. The rough sketch is like so:
A google-like search page (auto suggestion) where users can enter a company's name, ticker, or CIK number. If there are multiple entries users should be able to select/check-box the entries they want. They can select one primary company and 3 sub-companies that they will be compared to. From there the next page should be the main company profile, populated with their specific data. Think of it like a "facebook" profile page, but for companies.
I would like to find a team (one dev/one designer) that are familiar with content management systems, AJAX, and PHP. We are currently debating on what route is the best to take with the various CMS platforms out there. They need to be extensible, and not too "cookie-cutter" where design is limited to how the CMS defines it. So far MODx seems to be a likely candidate, secondary being Drupal. This is something we would like to get feedback on to know what would be the most appropriate for this project.
Design wise I would like to mold something similar to other analytics site, Google, or similar to this [url removed, login to view] but not too "numbers" focused. Our focus is to provide essential numbers in a few dashboard modules, with emphasis on providing detailed written explanations for each.
Lastly, I would like the project to not use any flash. Instead, usage of AJAX and AJAX based charts is preferred.
