We are in need to develop a browser extension or desktop application to get help marketing our IT recruiting business on LinkedIn. We use the professional networking site, LinkedIn heavily to communicate with candidates and reach out to the broader community with job alerts, event invitations and other content.
We are limited in the volume and reach of the content we post by the the time it takes to publish it in status feeds and, in particular, LinkedIn's groups.
We are looking for an application developer who can create either a browser extension or desktop application to automate this process for us. This will dramatically improve efficiency and drive sales, growing our already considerable presence on the website.
I am seeking quotes for the total cost of ownership of such a tool, inclusive of the developer's fee and expected timeframes for completion and handover.
The tool needs to be tolerant of different browsers, especially Google Chrome and Internet Explore.
It also needs the functionality to retain and deploy the login details for multiple profiles while clearing the history and cookie cache to avoid conflict with the website or subvert the need to do so.
Please feel free to let me know what you think.
