We currently run a eCommrce platform for a very specific industry and I am looking to create a more basic Saas platform that is based in Wordpress, either multi-site or standard. Please have experience with this type of project and be able to show a sample of previous work.
Here is my overview of the project as well:
This will be a saas type product. for clarification Users = our clients, people using the service or APP. customers = the clients customers, the end buyers.
users sign up for the service on our site or through the APP. This is a product that is used by the users, customers do not download the APP. this is tool for print companies to use internally to send prices and proofs to their customers.
a user will sign up (15 day free trial as well, unrestricted trial) and then they set up their profile/account. Setting up the profile account will include uploading their logo, contact info and any relevant info. Then the user will set up their print pricing using a form similar to the attached screenshot [login to view URL], from there the user will set up their markup on the blank products, this markup can be set on a product, category or vendor level. (some background- there are 2 factors to pricing printed items, the print cost (print process) and the markup on the blank item, for example a t-shirt cost $3.00 and then the print charge of $5.00 is added to that to determine the final subtotal)
Once that is all set they can begin using the APP or desktop version. They can quickly do quotes and email them to customers. Customers will recieve a HTML formatted email and a PDF attached. On the HTML version there will be action button on the bottom to place an order, request changes or request a proof. (these will be optional and selected by the client to be included or not) Some clients may want to handle the order differently.
We are not sure how we will handle the placing of order. I am thinking an Integration with PayPal and/or stripe to send an invoice the customer can pay online and a return API call to update the APP and change the quote or Proof to an order and have it appear in a simplified production calendar.
The other main function is being able to send proofs, we will integrate this will a simplified version of our design tool. Here is a similar sample: [login to view URL] click on upload print ready files to see what I am talking about. After uploading the files and creating the proof images the APP will email the proof to the customer in a formatted HTML email with PDF attachement. This will have the same action buttons as the quote. The proof can also have all the quote details.
Users can allow customers to place an order directly from the price quotes or the proof emails with the action buttons. I envision that an automatic paypal or stripe invoice gets sent and after payment the App updates to show the order and puts it in the production calendar.
The system will save the quotes and proofs for a set time period, probably 60 days then purge them, But the users will be able to download the quotes and proof PDF to keep for their records. See below email from devs as well.
These is an overview of what we need to do. This will have some similarities to our current products, but this is Saas so eveything will be run through our website and users login to the site to use the software or through the APP. The design will be mobile first style and clean and simple to setup and use.
