Hey guys I would like to create a database for suppliers. Where like a CRM I can add the company name contact information and categories/skills they specialize in. I will be able to query by the categories/skills. I will also will be able to rate the supplier and the one with the best ratings will show up higher. Last but not least I want to be able to email them. I'm sure there are many open source programs online that can be customized and I don't mind using them. Also the supplier will have his page to add in and for me to approve
So as you understand we looking for a program to manage and send inquiries to our suppliers. If possible we would like it to be an extension of our already existing program that manages Candidates
the program at this moment is designed in PHP
Here's how the current programs works:
This is in the admin section.
A candidates skills, years of experience, evaluation of skill level and Resume are all uploaded into the database. Option to include price of candidate.
Skills can be added or deleted. Candidates may be added or deleted as well.
The information of the Candidate is available on public and be queried based on skills
The new section will be for Suppliers.
-Like the candidate we want to have a supplier list
-Each supplier should have their own login. In their section they will be allowed to add their profile, the skills they have available, their contact information and candidate with CV’s they wish to upload. The CV’s they upload would go public just like the program. Like this every candidate will have a supplier dedicated to him in the admin so it will be easy to trace back.
The supplier profile information should not be public, only the CV’s they upload. When a supplier makes any sort of change, like adding a skill or uploading a CV, there needs to be an email to the administrator listing what was done so everything can be kept in order.
To be able to evaluate suppliers in the database. 4 areas of evaluation. Credibility, Value, Quality and Capacity. The better the score the higher the he is on the list
We would like query based on skills and score and send an email to all the appropriate candidates
If you can't attach it to the already existing program try to push some of the features from the original program. Otherwise it would be fine to work with what we have.
A great thing would be if it could be part of a full open source CRM system, where we can also deal with sales follow-up etc.. I really don't expect you to program a full CRM but to use an already existing one
Another great asset would be if we can make a desktop admin so we can work on it when the net is down
