    The majority of this is taxonomy--a daunting but inexpensive step. Keep in mind it requires constant monitoring and involvement if the product suppliers are adjusting SKUs, putting things on backorder, offer odd options for customization, etc.

    Tailored in a sense that the products are customizable, or the items that are suggested are tailored based upon demographics/past purchases?

    Depends how automated you want to get. Full automation requires that you build interfaces that interact with each and every one of your suppliers' inventory mechanisms ($). A simple order output that someone picks up on the other end (email fulfillment) can be very simple. I'm not sure what industry this app speaks to, so I won't make an assumption on the route you'll be forced to take.

    Easy. Lots of plug-in options.

    This will quickly become a lot of work if you have a lot of different products/services that all need tailored options. It's mostly just getting all of the information into a data file that the app can use to create the customization form. If you can't scrape that data from somewhere, and you have to enter it all manually, you will be quite miserable because data entry is time consuming. If you're paying for someone else to do it, you have to trust that they do it right. If they make a mistake, your app will have an issue. If you do it, you have to try to not go insane.

    Its not really an E-commerce like setup. I seriously wish I could describe the whole thing in detail on here and not worry (if I could, you'd get it right away).. But I'll continue to try my best to explain it. Because its not like an E-commerce system, I dont have to deal with SKU's, but an inventory system for only one part (I believe there might be a plug in for this). This app will work with many different industries (roughly 5 or so), so when it needs to be tailored, its so that it gives you the right options and information based on its role on the app. Each thing will be customizable in its own way, so that page will give you all the options necessary. I would like everything to be as automated as possible. With the exception of the feature that will require the inventory system, the automation should be easy. I cant think of a way to describe the scheduling system without giving too much out right now.

    Gathering the data wont be too difficult from what Im thinking (with the exception of one feature, which I have a feeling will be the most difficult one of all). As for entering it, I'll have someone do it so I dont mess it up myself. Each feature will have its form that would work just about anywhere (geographically speaking) as the information is pretty basic.

    I forgot to mention something I've used to fast track UI design -- Crowdsourcing. Check out Logo Design, Web Design & Graphic Design Crowdsourcing | DesignCrowd for inexpensive crowdsourcing of anything from Logo design all the way to full application design and code implementation.
