Creating a marketplace for DHC.global
SaaS instrument for the designer and the client + marketplace + construction and repair portal
About the Client
If you need to find well-qualified specialists, be it interior design, construction or other business fields, you have to do it yourself personally. Of course, this is a stumbling stone in the SME development, taking into account those who work in the interior design and low-rise construction segment. The client is confined to the location of his project and is forced to look for specialists who can attend the project meeting within less than an hour ride. Let’s assume you failed to find an ideal professional who has an identical vision of the future interior just like your, what would you do next? Hire the one who does not match the requirements but is nearby? But it’s not a good option, and you know it.
The typical scenarios for the person who is looking for a well-qualified specialist:
- ask friends for the trusted contacts, but the max you will get is 2-3 good specialists or companies;
- search through ads (but you know that it is not the right solution);
- google companies which mention the exact services you need. But be ready to read an excellent text without knowing the truth about the quality of the work and of course no guarantees will be provided.
None of the search options will give you the confidence to find an excellent, responsible performer, and the search is also tied to the place of your residence. But the search itself is only one side of the problem. You have to provide a result and secure the customer any risks.
There is no common web-tool or admin-panel in Ukraine where you can manage your projects, approve orders of materials, goods, confirm money spends, view and approve documentation, lead communication with the contractor etc. Public space will create an ability to influence the honesty and professionalism of the specialists. You can leave a review and look through completed projects. And in case any problem arises – always contact support service or website administration.
The objective is to create a web-tool which will represent contractors and customers from interior design, construction and repair spheres. On the portal, people can choose a designer, an architect and other specialists they will deal with during the whole project and will have an option to order all necessary materials.
The primary task of the business contractor is to sell construction and repair goods. And with the help of this project, they will move forward to the next level.
The portal solves the problem in this way: we provide not just a search, but interaction with the contractor from the first letter to the act of rendered services.
