I need someone for the following project:
Geek Speak: A application that will take in an excel spreadsheet (or maybe a CSV file), parse it, and then interact with a web interface to do the import of each row to a web form, and submission.
Laymans Translation: I want you to code an application that will take certain values from a spreadsheet (.pages for mac and excel for windows, or just google's free excel....you tell me what would be best!) and dump those values into an already established shopping cart. My company has well over 300 SKU's and the purchasing situation is a nightmare for serious salespeople. I want you to help me streamline it.
I want the sales people to go into their spreadsheet (able to be used on computer and tablet), enter what they need to purchase, and then have the spreadsheet connect with the already established corporate website's shopping cart via each salesperson's backend log in. Once connected, the app should do a fast upload of SKUs and associated quantity. The user will then leave the app and continue in the shopping cart (already established) and do all payment and shipping information there.
The shopping cart is written in coldfusion.
You, the developer, must sign an agreement that I own all work, source code, and I can do with it what I want.
Now tell me how you would do this, what language you would do this in, how long it would take you, and quote me a price. Language skills are extremely important here as the ability to communicate is key.
