Experience Level: Expert
General information for the website: Car Dealer Platform with user and dealer submissions.
Kind of development: Customization of existing website
Description of requirements/features: This is a fairly complex project, hence I am reaching out for help!

I am willing to base this on any CMS, Joomla, Wordpress , drupal or indeed any platform you recommend. However I have experience with both Joomla and Wordpress so can help greatly with the project in terms of front end design, templates, and component selection. I am also wiling to use/provide third party components to aid functionality and reduce costs.

I have been looking at (and have a license for) EXP Autos ( for the Joomla CMS which would cover a huge amount of the base functionality. However there are many custom requirements to add to this system.

I have attached the original clients brief in Power point format although this does look somewhat overwhelming.

Functionality required:

*Base functionality as summarized (, if you know of a better system then I am very willing to consider it.
*Customization of the user profiles to extend the message system and to be able to add photo galleries. I also need to be able to add "sub dealers" to the main dealer accounts. The client has also requested an "advert stream" for dealers and users who have "followed" specific other users and dealers" I have considered integration with "Easy Social" or "JomSocial" to cover these features. Again open to options.
*Credit system (could use PayPlans -, their wallet system would be useful with full ACL control and it also integrates with the payment gate of choice ( This is needed for payment for monthly accounts and "one off" payments for various features within the site.
*I need to add a basic auction facility for new and existing listings. This does not have to be very complex but needs the basic auction functionality such as bidding, reserves ect.
*TransUnion API integration (I Have added their API to this brief). We need to include the function of a "car check" and have the ability to add this report to a listing. This feature also needs to be paid for via the payment system.

I think that is about it! Time as always is an issue and we would like to commence on this as soon as possible. We have been seriously burnt with a previous development company who began this and simply vanished so we would prefer to not work with companies from India (just from bad previous experience).

Obviously we would like an experienced Joomla (or any good PHP/SQL) developer with a great track record.

There are some serious opportunities going forward with further development planned, maintenance and app development. So we would love to build a good working relationship with the right developer.

Thank you for your time.
