Service Provider is a free application which provides an interactive platform for users and service providers. It is a Business Networking Application which provides user an easy access to the services they require at home, office, or any where and greater choices in terms of the providers of those services.
The application doesn't itself provides services or affiliation to service providers, it is merely a business group for provider-user interaction . By providing a detailed service-provider list to users the application serves an easy to use interactive yellow page directory which can be used on the go.
Users can access a list of service providers, providing a particular service within nearby areas, or any other area of choice. For finding nearby provider, zip code of the user is the main parameter(As of now, the application provides for only US Postal Codes and hence caters only to users in USA.).Users can then make a call to the selected provider over the phone using details provided. The application allows users, greater mobility and specific service provider information.
A service provider registering into the application is enabled to get listed in the list of service providers based on his service type and places where his services are offered. This helps him to expand his clientele and also provides him greater visibility.
The application caters to both iPhone and iPod albeit, slight varied functionalities. While in iPhone, user can make call to the desired service providers, the view in iPod only provides for user checking out desired provider's details.
