Isto Studios, LLC (Isto) is seeking a web development company to help launch a Content Management System. The basic structure we will need is as follows:
• WYSIWYG back end
• 10 templates on the front end
• Multiple color schemes per template with full HEX control for advanced users
• MySQL back end to capture customer data
• MySQL queries for business reminders
• Shopping Cart logic
• Domain lookup and registration
• Library of stock photos for specific industries
Isto will allow Open Source solutions such as Drupal, WordPress, or Magento for its needs. It will expect the developer to list the Open Source options in his or her proposal and to list the rationale for using them.
If a prospective developer has already developed a CMS that will fit Isto’s needs, or knows of a CMS that will fit our needs, we will entertain purchasing the rights to use that system. Why reinvent the wheel, right? However, Isto will require that it has full rights to the code and can make changes to it if need be. In this case, the developer would be responsible for brokering the deal and shaping the system to Isto’s requirements.
We understand that one individual may not be able to build this entire system or that a firm may not have all the skills required to build it. Our main concern at this point is to find a developer who can write code for the functionality of the WYSIWYG backend of the CMS. We have a designer we can use; if need be, we also have resources for the shopping cart and database work. All developers must be willing to collaborate on this project.
Due to the fact that Isto will be selling web templates and a CMS; and due to the fact that a development provider may currently provide similar products or may provide them in the future; Isto will require all prospective developers to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) before releasing full details on the nature of the project. It is our hope that this Initial RFP will give you enough information to know if you are interested in the project. Please send links to examples of your work when requesting the NDA.
DUE DATE #1: The deadline for submitting the NDA and receiving the detailed RFP is May 7th, 2011
DUE DATE #2: The deadline for submitting your proposal is June 1st, 2011
Thank you for your time and consideration. We look forward to hearing your ideas!
