What I need is to write a technical RFP for software company, in order to get a quotation . everything should be in detail, this in my estimation above 100 pages for technical work.
What is self storage:
Self-storage is an industry that rents storage space, also known as "storage units," to tenants. Self-storage tenants include businesses and individuals. To store their various types of stuff such as household goods for individuals, or storing commercial items for businesses as warehouse to store their different products. Some types of storage units are to be utilized to store a specific type of items such as medical instruments or medical drugs, or documents storage units to store files and records in a specific condition that keep them save. In addition, there are some other storage types to store vehicles and motorcycles. All above mentioned units and storage purposes are just examples and not limited to. Self-storage company may also sell related storage items to existing tenants or drop-in customers such as boxes, tapes, locks, car cover, etc.
The purpose for this RFP is to request a customized solution to develop a responsive web application (with mobile application in a later stage) for a self-storage company to fully automate self-storage rental process and tenants’ access to units. The process starts on the website or the application by the visitor or the user to check available units for rent, or products or any other services listed on the website/app for purchase.

• Display and available units and features
