Local company needs complex coding help

From: David White 
The following is very vague, mostly because I don't have many details

Without going into a lot of details (I don't even know many of the
details), a local company has invested over 40k in the last couple of years
for a proprietary software system built specifically for them.

It's essentially a large database, with the software hosted in the cloud
(hosting is provided by the vendor), and from what I can tell is supposed
to be used for CRM & sales purposes. It is supposed to integrate nicely
with quickbooks as well as other apps so that items can be purchased,
tracked, sold, advertised, etc... throughout the system in various stages
of production.

The lead programmer left the company that was providing the service, and
the client hasn't been served well. There's apparently a lot of bugs in the
system, and the owner of the company (the client) is very frustrated.

He's looking for someone who could come in, review the situation, and
advise on a path forward:

   - Can the current system be improved upon
   - Should he throw it away and start from scratch again?

Apparently the software vendor thinks that they can improve upon the
existing system by switching the processes over to a queue-based system.
But they want another 10k to do that transition.

Again, I know this is extremely vague. I don't know any languages involved.
I just know that the guy is looking for some help.

Anyone who is interested in finding out more and who thinks they might be
able to help are welcome to contact me off list, and I'll send your contact
info over to the company (client).
