Hello, I run an online flooring company.

Just a brief intro to give you a better understanding in what I am after.

I supply and install flooring to the domestic market, and my work comes through the internet. I am a 21st century company.

What i am after is software for an iPad, so when I go to a customers home, instead of writing on paper, I would like it all electronic.

Now the way i do it at the monument is;

I would go to a customers home, take there details, ie name, address, phone etc. Then, I would start to measure, so say a room is 4mtr x4mtr, write that down on a graph chart, for the more complex measures, ie. hall stairs and landings, I would draw more complex plans, So on this app, I want a section so I can draw the plans. Once I have the measurements , I then have to work the plans out, so i can make a cut up plan for the fitter to work off. I then need to write down what accessories are required. Then finally i would go through with the customer with products/underlays and finally i put the installation fee on, work out how much flooring is required, and you get your final price.

Working out my plan - When you are measuring say a hall stairs landing, you have to take accurate plans, now this is where it gets tricky. Most carpets come in 4 meter wide, some in 5 meter, some 12 foot wide and some 15ft wide, so when working out a plan, depending on the customer and the product they have chosen, i can work my plan from there to get the best cut up plan for the fitter.

Then once i have my plans and worked out the quantity to be ordered, its now down to the selling of the product.

I have an approximate collection of over 500 ranges of Carpet, Vinyl & Laminate samples.

What i would like to do is manual enter information about this product onto this app, things like what widths does it come in, say 2+3+4m wide, the colours/styles in the range, then things like prices what it costs me and so on and also the pictures of the product too.

So lets say i have at the top of the app the contact information
Then i have a section for drawing plans up but i would like to speak to who ever does this app because further requirements are required for this.
Then a section with nameable forms for just square rooms that i can just name, put the size in and select a product. Then drop down menus for accessories, and underlays.

Regards price entering, I make around the same amount of profit on say something i retail for 4.99m2 to 24.99m2, So when i enter cost price, when it comes to measuring and i select a product from the menu, it has already worked out what the retail price should be to the product.

Finally once i have all the relative information, i can take a deposit there and then from card (ecommerce) or cash, then click send which then sends all this information to head office

Its very tricky and i need to speak who i choose about it more, so if you are interested, let me know.
