Need a "communication" app to complement a Contractor Listing site.
Have existing Wordpress + Sabai Directory Listing Plugin. NB: Not necessary to use the existing setup (it's to demonstrate the functionalities).
Need both IOS and Android.
Will consider any solution/options for startup purpose. (NB: Resource intensive features/functionalities may be implemented later).
- The app is to allow all 3 way communications between clients > me > contractors (and vice versa).
Client search contractors (likely on website - SEO & Content) based on category/tag/location (Listing is geolocated).
Server lists the right contractor, client selects to contact. Server notifies contractors (prefer also via phone text messaging for those without Internet).
Contractor respond with Predefined User Input replies text/photo/map. Voice and video may be ported to phone/other messaging apps (you proposed)
Basically the communication should allow text, image, video, voice, streaming, notation/doodling so that client and contractor totally undersdtand what is happening.
Client and contractor to arrange visit and the communication continues.
Signup with social media or email.
App scans users' email/social network for contacts/invites.
App helps contractor to create profile with "prefilling" and scan phone for photos to make portfolio album.
App helps contractor to reply with "default" message. In short everything should be min. typing, one-click send wherever possible.
App has console for me to send media/messages to (mainly) clients based on their area of interest, which clients can then share on social media.
This startup is a long term project - There will be more development in near future.
Prefer can be handled by sharedhosting for the start. Happy to use cloudhosting right away.
I can help with graphics & design.
