Conceptualization of Beacon
Book the service provider based on availability, negotiate price.
After the task is completed, provide rating and tip based on how well the job was done
Search for user with skill and select based on rating and experience
Service providers view of the application showing all the requests that are pending and can be accepted or denied
Technology has shaped the job market in numerous ways but the most notable impact technology has had on the job market is reliance on technology more than humans which has ultimately led to a loss of job for many people. Beacon aims at creating jobs by bringing in an ecosystem of never ending supply and demand for job.
What it does
The application basically bridges the gap between someone who wants a service and someone who has the skill to provide that service and also employs methods to ensure quality service and flexible prices are provided.
How we built it
The application is built as an android application with Firebase serving as the data management tool.
