The software we are looking to have developed is a small Windows/Internet Explorer privacy application. This brief is meant to be a general introduction and any serious developers should be ready to sign an NDA in order for us to disclose the exact nature of the application we require.
Some notes about this project:
ABOUT YOU: You are a professional developer who has an impeccable sense of customer service and a high level of technical skill in developing Windows applications. You will be prepared to provide a development schedule and project scope to define the work that needs doing.
ABOUT US: We are small web development firm who is embarking on a small software project.
TEHCNICAL: Application needs to install and run as intended on all versions of Windows 98, ME, 2000 and XP with Internet Explorer 5.0 or newer.
ONLINE FEATURES: As this application will be sold online, we also require a simple algorithm and online serial number generator which our purchasing system can query in order to automatically generate and send a unique serial number based on the customers email address.
GENERIC APPLICATION FEATURES: Some generic features we will require are: 1) Auto-updating: The program should have a section which allows users to check for patches/updates - which you will provide, and that we will host on our servers. 2) Regional Considerations: The initial version will be in English, please keep in mind that we will be paying to have future versions compiled in a variety of different languages. 3) Plugins: The initial version will have no plugins, please keep in mind that we will be paying to have specific plugins developed in the near future. We do
not want to have to redesign the application to accommodate the use of these plugins.
QUALITY: We want an application of a quality like SmartFTP. This is a different application to what we need but will give you an idea of the overall quality we are after.
DELIVERABLES: Full Version, Demo Version, Source Code, Online Keygen and any patches for bug unforeseen.
SUPPORT: We would like the developer to indicate how long they are prepared to offer patches for on bugs which are not discovered during testing.
PAYMENT: A previous developer we worked with was unable to deliver a software development project as per scope. The end result was the developer KEEPING our deposit - and left us with nothing but a BIG hole in our pocket. After this negative experience, we require that any developer we work with, does so on "payment on completion" terms. Or put another way, we require that the developer agrees to keeps ALL source code until the project is paid for in full. We appreciate that this is a big ask and what we propose is that we are allowed to test the final version AND once approval is given on a completed application, payment in full will be sent to you, whereby you will send us the completed source code for the application. If you are not willing to work on these or similar terms (you propose) then please do not bid. We understand your situation, and hope you understand ours.
YOUR BID: Please indicate which programming language you will use and provide any samples of work which you think might show your expertise.
Good luck to all bidders.
Dear Sir We already have a privacy protector built. It support plugins too. You can create plugin using the built in plugin builder We will sent you a demo upon receiving your reply Regards TechFort Systems
