Creation of an online platform/marketplace where various providers can update their multiple resources (calendar based services) and administrate these simultaneaously (meaning receive bookings from customers through the platform as well as update bookings directly on the platform). At the same time it should be possible for users to search for available services in their vicinity (location based). The platform should enable bookings (confirmed booking numbers sent to both provider and user), as well as facilitate payment (+ possibily cancellation of bookings) from user to provider. The platform therefore functions as a marketplace for services between providers and users.
As with any platform registration processes are expected, furthermore, there should be a booking history (see hierarchy slide in attachment) for both parties, ranking possibility for used services.
Main sites/components on the platform are:
- Service listing and search (incl. map and list offering)
- Booking history for provider as well as user
- Profile details for provider as well as user
- Resource Management for provider (calendar based, should allow to add multiple resources)
- Page showing general listings of services offered on platform (will be explained in detail)
- About, News, Terms and Conditions, FAQ
- Partners (to be added later)
- Intro site
Admin should have overview/access to all bookings.
Functionalities have multiple similarities with tripadvisor vacation rentals.
