According to the ILO, 1.25 billion employees in the world, 38 percent of the global workforce, are working in the sectors most affected by the coronavirus crisis, which is the most likely scenario to be unemployed in this process[1]. The COVID-19 crisis is expected to wipe out _6.7% of working hours globally in the second quarter of 2020 -- equivalent to 195 million full-time workers, the International Labour Organization (ILO) said at 7 April[2].US unemployment rises 6.6m in a week as coronavirus takes its toll[3]._

As software developers, we feel responsible for the risk of people becoming unemployed. If I were a child, I would never want my father to come home unhappy because he wouldn't play with me. If I were a wife or husband, I would not want to lose interest in the person I love because of unemployment. We want people to overcome this process happily and safely.

 

Besides people don't want to leave the house. He wants to meet his needs online. He wants to have a safe and healthy shopping.

 

For this reasons, we are establishing a hybrid system where the entire process of a business from demand to sales can be carried out virtually. In this way, the unemployed will be able to continue their own business through our system and meet the demands without facing their customers.

We are developing a solution suitable for unemployment and home product and service purchases.Differences, Innovations and Milestones:

1-Streaming: Live online communication and trade with between costumer and consultant.

2-The Communication with between and consultant:

ii-The costumer can connect directly with consultant. 

3-Brand Consultant (Commercial or Social) Service: Interactive Mobile Protfolio and Office Service

Which type of submission are you sharing?

  • Identifying a gap that needs to be addressed

Describe the business pivot or adaptation in 3-4 sentences.

1-Customers enter their requests into the system and experts register as consultants to the system. 2-If customers want, the own request can enter the system, if they wish, directly can communicate with the consultant virtually. 3-i) When the client and consultant first started the service price is determine and If the two parties agree to price, the service relationship continues. ii) If the request is related in social aid the request is represented to colsultant.
