I require site design and development for a database powered business to business website. The site will use AJAX and jQuery. You need proven expertise in both.
I am a web developer with more projects than I can handle. I do good work, and I expect any contractors to do the same. Preference will be given to individuals. I prefer to deal directly with the person actually doing the coding.
Your English skills must be good, and you must be willing to communicate regularly by messages and Skype.
You will have responsibility for the site design. The client wants a clean, businesslike site. You must be willing to provide up to three site design concepts for the client to consider, if necessary.
The site will require an extensive admin control panel to allow historical pricing data to be entered. The control panel must allow the administrator to send personalized HTML emails to his clients. And will allow him to look up and edit any previous quote requests entered.
Some data will be uploaded as csv Excel files, and a program must be created to upload and process that data and enter it into the database.
The control panel would also generate reports on site traffic, quotes entered, conversion rate etc.
The site requires a “request a quote” form. All form entries must be verified client side. When completed the visitor should be sent a personalized HTML email that includes some savings data generated by the calculator, and by queries to the database. All form entries must be verified client side. Another email is sent to the client, which has all the contact information, plus the results of the calculator savings and the database generated savings data. Additionally, all contact information and savings details are to be entered into the database.
Additional pages: contact us page, about us, services, news and five pages, each of which pulls pricing information from the database. Two other pages are needed for current pricing that must be scraped from third party sites. You will be expected to create the scraper.
The site should be designed to allow multiple languages, although launch will be in English only.
Important: To verify that you have read these specifications before quoting, add the phrase, “Excellent English Skills” to the first paragraph. Quotes without it will be deleted.
The look of the site should be business-like, clean, simple and usable.
The home page requires a jQuery image slider.
The home page requires an AJAX powered calculator, to allow visitors to enter in their usage and see if they are on the proper rate plan, and to see what their savings would have been last year had they been dealing with this company.
This program must be written in pure PHP and mySQL. No frameworks (Smarty etc.) and no objects, unless self contained in includes or classes.
All elements should have ID tags for CSS targeting. The site output should validate with the w3 validator.
The code must be well commented in English
