Someone with deep understanding of MySQL, Google Apps Engine to build infrastructure based on the accounting software QuickBooks is required.
This project will require you to develop skills on the Intuit Partner Platform (IPP) in order to build an application (App) that will retrieve data from the client's desktop QuickBooks (QB) software export it into a database (DB), that also has to be developed by you, and then display the data in a form that resembles the QB app interface, but with more features.
The reason for building the DB is so that information can be retrieved, synced, updated and displayed seamlessly on various already available Google tools, such as Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Maps, Google Docs… And also some non-Google tools such as White Pages.
With this project we want to accomplish the following:
- Seamless use of features and already available web tools
- Eliminate double data entry
- Reduce the amount of data entry
- Have the natural abilities of QB open to the mobile world
- Enhance the amount and quality gathered on clients' customers
The project will be handled on a multi milestones basis since it is quite large and encompassing.
An estimate of what would be the costs involved in getting some of the basics on the project is necessary.
Basic Features and milestones:
- Develop IPP App
- Develop DB
- Develop Google Contacts connection
- Develop Web Interface and Design
Other mentioned and non-mentioned features will have separate milestones and the initial developer will be granted the opportunity to keep working for the years of development.
We will provide the developer with all the necessary development tools, such as servers, domains and/or anything else required for the completion of the project.
If you think you have the skill set to learn the IPP and have the strong base on MySQL, PHP, XML, HTML we will be willing to work with you.
Reports on the progress should be done at least every other day, in order to keep everyone on the same track and right direction. Reports can be verbal or written.
As a deadline, we haven't set one yet due to the amount of add-ons the full projects has. But would like to start deploying ASAP and only if able to meet expectations and quality of work required in order to have a presentable scalable and simple to use product.
The scope of the work is quite large, but the initial budget isn't unfortunately. But over time there will be bonuses and extensive amounts of work that could be much better rewarded.
