We require a database of new and used automobile dealers in Canada. Overall there are about 4500 new dealers and 5500 used dealers. Totaling about 10,000 entries. Each entry has about 20 fields that could be filled assuming all the information for each field is available. We expect that each contact will require about 2 minutes (maximum) to complete using a cut and paste method. (actually you simply highlight the field information needed then right click the mouse and a drop down menu appears - you then simply selct the field you want the highlighted information to be entered into. This is an easy task but one that requires someone to read and understand English and be able to dig for infomation - so a little internet savy would be benificial.
We will supply you (by e-mail) with a small piece of software that will open on your computer and be ready to use in seconds.
Once open, we need you to scan the internet using the built in explorer window and copy and paste required fields of information into the database.
Please quote this job as an hourly rate. This will allow us and you to decide if you are capable of doing the job at hand in reasonible time and if it is something that suits you. This allows each party to move on if it is not a good fit.
I will work with you to help you to understand the software (very simple to use) and how to pull the information from websites. I would prefer to be able to speak with you on the phone to explain this in detail (I will call you)
You need an ms environment with .net features.
I am looking to move forward as quickly as possible on this project and I want the database finished by mid January AT THE LATEST.
