Contract Work or Code for Purchase?

Postby mluchterhand » Fri Aug 10, 2018 2:19 pm

Hello Everyone,

I was wondering if anyone might be looking for some potential contract work. Our current BR product has served us well for many years, but it has come to the point where the management at my company is looking for two pretty big changes for us to be able to compete better in our industry (truck leasing/repair). We have looked at other software solutions and even though they offer a lot of bells and whistles we would greatly miss the customization, reliability, and cost of BR. I know BR can easily accommodate our needs, but the big problems I have is limited time and fairly limited programming experience. I am hoping one of you might be in the market to help out and make some extra money. This work could be done fairly easily remotely though we are not against on site help. Without going into a large amount of detail the basic description of the project is as follows:
[*]We don't currently have a good way of tracking our parts inventory at our various locations. We would ideally be looking for something that supports basic bar code scanners with the ability to check in/check out parts.
[*]We track vehicle repairs through work orders which essentially list the complaint, cause, and correction of the repair. These also include the parts needed to make the repairs. Currently, this process is heavily paper based. Essentially we would be looking to move this towards a more efficient semi-paperless routine. We would also like this to tie into the parts inventory mentioned above.

We are running BR 4.3 client-server with Linux server. All of our clients are Windows based. I can certainly provide much more information regarding the project if anyone is interested in learning more.

I have asked a few developers at the past few conferences about potential contract work and it seems almost everyone is facing one of my similar challenges (limited time). So, if no one has the time to tackle such a project I was also wondering if maybe anyone has written something similar in the past? If you have, would you be willing to sell your source code to us? Having a similar program I feel I am competent enough to modify the code to our needs and get a working product much faster than me attempting to build something from scratch.

Thanks in advance. Please contact me at if you are interested in the contract work or if you would be willing to sell something that might help which you wrote in the past.

I'm interested. I sent an email, but it may not have made it through spam filters and such. I'd like to hear more details about the project. You can call me at 800-643-6318 ext 2 whenever you have a few minutes to discuss it.
