Description

We want two applications that work together:

a. Lawn Services Quotation Tool
- This mobile application will work with an IPhone carried by our quotation team.
- The quote person will drive to a customer site. The Iphone will use its GPS to understand the exact location of one of our sales team.
- The sales person will gather several key pieces of customer information including several a parameters that help define the scope of the work to be done on the customer's site.
- The app will generate a price quote that the sales person can review before accepting (they can adjust the parameters if they don't like the quote).
- After filling in the information in a screen on the phone, the sales person will complete the job. The will then generate an email which will be sent both to our head office and to the customer with the quotation information, our contact information etc. The content of this letter will be pulled from a company file server where the standard quotation file will be maintained.
- The quotation will include the price generated by the quotation app, will include the time/date it was completed and will contain the customer information provided by the sales person including the GPS location of the customer.

b. A second app is for tracking time of our Landscaping crews. It will work simply as follows:
- A crew logs in at the beginning of the day indicating they have started work.
- They then indicate status changes throughout the day and the internal GPS information is tracked by the app. Each time status is changed by the user, an email is sent to head office indicating the time-stamp of the status change and the GPS location of the person changing their status.
- Examples of status include: Start of Day, Driving, Arrive at Customer Site, Complete customer job, End of Day.
- The Trail of email sents to head office can then be used to show what work was done by that crew for that day.

I would like this email trail then to be used by an application on the company's server to receive these emails and to note status changes, draw routes on Google Maps, and show how long it took to complete each customer job. A report should be generated that can be used for billing purposes and filed for future reference.

Notes

I have attached the spreadsheet that shows how the quotation app is to be built as a first pass. We will want flexibility to increase the number of parameters and the number of parameter variables in generating a quote over time, but this is a start to generate the first-generation mobile application for Quoting projects.

      I think one feature of the app is that there must be a configuration page that allows a user to update the parameters that are the basis for the calculations made. These are noted as Bold cells in the spreadsheet (also note there are two pages in the spreadsheet - Proposal and Cost Model. These sheets interact in formulas. I don't want the individual sales people to be able to modify the underlying configuration paramaters however, only the main customer information paramaters. Only someone with the right authorization should be able to adjust the underlying parameters.

      Sure, I have run contests before, but it appears I must call 99Designs to get this contest to be blind now. I plan to make it blind so designers can be more free in their comments/

      Hi there,

      Can you please make the contest blind? If it is your first contest at 99designs you would need to contact the 99designs' support team to make it blind; if you have held contests before, you can do it directly on your control panel.

      Blind means that we can't see each other's designs until the content ends.

      Regards,

      James

      I have a spreadsheet that shows how the general quotation tool works in excel. Let me know and I can make it available to you.
