We need a SENIOR software expert to ADVISE us on the best software / apps / plug-ins for a planned website.
You will work from our existing basic Use Case document (and also prototype web pages we have already prepared). You will also communicate with us to gain a deeper understanding of our needs and to discuss the pros and cons of various software options. Good telephone English would assist and would speed-up the process.
The site is a complex B2B operation involving many suppliers / many products and collaboration between many managers / many experts / many buyers. It is a unique sort of site involving a new business concept for which no similar website exists.
The site will have unusually heavy commercial traffic from day one. So, identifying the most appropriate software is critical before we commence building the site.
You will have EXPERT understanding of available software and/or SaSS, including but not limited to:
Complex CRM / collaboration systems.
Secure Document Management.
Complex Product Catalog (not the usual simple cart type).
Multi-language and multi-currency.
Real time data feed.
Mobile phone applications.
Cost of Licenses for recommended software.
You must have an expert understanding of various GOOGLE applications and possible customisation of such (we have a particular reason to prefer Google offerings - but only where sensible).
You will have an OPEN MIND and be prepared to research latest software. You will not be biased by limited experience in just a few pet applications.
Please say the FORM in which you will give your advice (we have no preference).
You may give us just SIMPLE MENTOR advice. Or, you may choose a more complex from of advice as best suits you.
