we want to reprogram our existing reservation system. The existing system is based on dos programmed application and it does not use a database. Therefore we want to create an application in VB, which works with our central SQL 2005 DB Server.
The application is used in different restaurants, which are connected via VPN WAN to our network. Therefore the new system must be able to handle several companies with different access rights. the main factor is performance: Optimized queries through the WAN and very good user interaction, because they people on the phone have no time to click around.
The existing applications has the following modules:
1. Reservation: People can reserve a table for a specific time of the day: either lunch or dinner. Rules are behind the programming to allow the best table seating. A table plan to see, which table is free, etc.
2. Contacts: VIP Management with specific requests for tables, meals, etc.
3. Statistic: How many bookings, percent of bookings, etc.
4. Administration: Enter tables, rules, closed days in calendar, closed tables in specific season (no table on terrasse in winter), etc.
New should be: Automatic confirmation (email and sms) after booking.
A simple mask for Internet booking in ASP or .NET.
Interface language should be German and English.
Create form for Walkin persons
My calculation is about 1 to 2 month for experienced 2 people.
thanks to all, but I think a web application is not enough. it should be a desktop application, because it is critical that this application is very user friendly and it can be used without a mouse and waiting for response of a web site. For example if you want to make a reservation for a VIP, the name must popup after typing in the firts three letters of the name.
The second interface is a web page, but this will not be the main working app for users.
Please see attached screenshot of the existing application.
Sorry, I forgot: MS SQL 2005 is a must! It is already installed on our central database server.
thanks to all of you for your bids, but please do not make a bid if you cannot meet the requirements:
VB6 or VB.NET
MS SQL Server 2005 Full version
Attached is a screenshot of a programm, which is similar to our old foxpro based programm, but this version is just asp programmed. Because of performance and usability we want it as a desktop application with a central database. NO other way!!!!
SMS, Email and interface to our cash machines and web interface must be programmed!!
Performance and Usability are the main criterias!
I am not interested in you Web projects, because the web interface is only a small part. I am interested in your VB skills and also German skills!
All other bids are ignored!
I am interested in a long programming relationsship and not only for one project!
You must have at least two programmers, which can also give support to us. No one man show!
