We are a laboratory and are looking for a method to delivery sample reports and inform our clients more efficiently.
At the moment we use our website for our customers to deliver sample reports via a unique Code.
Our Php script loads the sample report(PDF) through Google Document Viewer on the event of user input.
We wish to automate many processes within sample management.
Attached you will find numerous files that describe the functionality we need.
most important functionalities are:
-customer shall be able to enter sample informations online and preregister their sample - the system must create and fill out the pdf files with user data.
This process starts from empty pdf form files
-as soon as the sample arrives in the lab the sample code is scanned - script mush check if its pre registred.
if TRUE: customer receives message by email, sms, fax or whatsapp that his sample is beeing processed now.
if FALSE: a website must be loaded, where the lab guy can enter the sample data and save it to a pdf file (again input is saved into empty pdf form that is beeing filled out at that moment)
-if the customer has NOT preregistred his sample - BUT wants to be informed when his sample report is ready for download - we need a website for registry of code, email, sms, whatsapp so he can choose how he wants to be informed.
-there must be an upload directory. when that is synchronized manually, the script must check if the contained sample file names have been registred for noticing the customer. If so - the script has to inform each customer by the method he wished e.g. Email that his sample is ready for download.
Generally the functionalities are diveded into 2 categories:
public for customers for preregistring sample and registring messaging service
and nonpublic for handling samples.
Beside the pure php functionality we additionally have the options to install e.g. Wordpress on our server.
When the project is finished the website doesn't need to look like a "high end polished Enterprise 500" website,
but it should have some basic design - where Wordpress could be a usefull tool.
If necessary, we can pay extra for a ready to buy design package compatible with e.g. wordpress.
The programming job requires handling input and output from PDF files while processing the files.
You should have experience using such libraries.
Also regarding Adobe Acrobat Pro you should be fairly familiar with - because the files to be handled within the website project are all Pdf Forms.
If you have questions just write me.
