Hello all, first of all thanks for taking your time to read through and understand this unique project before bidding. I will try to explain the best I can. If you are interested and have questions, please contact me.
So first, a little background may help. We are building a website for a small cruise line. They sell tickets for seats on their boats. There will be a public website that will allow anyone, anywhere to make a reservation. There will be another website that allows resellers to make reservations and earn commission. Those are the easy parts. We will handle all of that.
The 3rd part will be for the ticket sales office. Where people walk up and buy their tickets. We will also create the website for this. The ticket office will have a complete point of sale system:
- Touch Screen Monitor
- Pole Display
- Barcode Scanner
- Mag Strip Reader
- Cash Drawer
- Receipt and/or Ticket Printer
The works. What we need is for the website to interact with all these devices. The website will have a list of the reservations. When they touch one of the reservations it should go to a "SALE" screen. This screen is where you collect the cash or credit card from the customer, scan in the coupon, kick the cash drawer, display the results on the pole display and print a ticket/receipt (not necessarily in that order). After all of that is done, all data needs to be recorded back to the online database and resume operations with the website we created.
There may be a software package that can be used to assist with this. I am looking into NetKey ([url removed, login to view]). But it will still require some programming I am guessing. Please specify whether you would use a software package or custom programming for the job along with your bid.
Thank you for your time and bids!
