I am looking for someone to build an online application for the uploading of multiple files (and multiple file types eg .doc .pdf .jpg .gif etc) and generation of a single pdf.
I also require a database with client log-in and password to access the application.
The pdf output file is to be compressed and outputted to a public search page where the document should be search-able by fields which are tagged to the document prior to generation into pdf. The search result should also provide details about the size of the file and provide an option to email the document or download the document.
Clients need to log in, create a new file and enter some basic info about the file through standard fields then upload documents from their pc in order of output. Ideally the client will be able to preview the documents/document list that have been uploaded prior to pdf generation and swap the order before continuing with the conversion.
Clients should also be able to access past files to edit or review.
The code for the output file will be hosted on our website (as will the client log-in) but ideally the code can be available for each client to use on their own website so only their output files can be retrieved from their website as well. (this feature can be optional)
This should be a simple, easy to follow process for clients to log-on, create a new file, upload multiple documents and hit the CREATE button which will generate the single pdf. It should have a clean professional feel as this application is for the legal market.
Please provide quotes and timeframes for completing the work. Also please provide details on which language/program you will use to build the application and explain why this is the most suitable language/program for the job.
