A search engine app that connects users with merchants. Think Uber for Services

Quibus is a search engine app that connects users with merchants to offer local services at the best price. It gives users the freedom to decide what a "deal" is according to their own definition (price, merchant reviews, or distance). In addition to improving the traditional coupon market, Quibus wants to do for services what UBER does for car rides and AIRBNB does for houses. Quibus has 3 core features: LIVE DEALS Users specify what they need, when they need it, and how far they’re willing to travel. Local merchants are then notified of the request. After checking their calendar, merchants will offer an appointment time and price. Merchants can offer deals automatically by adding empty appointment slots, or send them manually. For instance, if a user needs a haircut on Wednesday evening, a merchant may send them an offer like this: 6pmhaircut for $40 instead of $60. From these offers, a user will decide which deal is the best according to their own definition. Maybe it’s the cheapest, the most convenient, or the merchant with the best reviews. As soon as the user accepts an offer, the appointment is confirmed and the merchant is notified of the booking. After the service is redeemed, the user leaves a review about the merchant, and the merchant leaves a review about the user. If merchants have favorable reviews, it’s likely they’ll attract more users. If users have favorable reviews, it’s likely they’ll attract better offers. More business for merchants, better offers for users. Everyone wins. LAST MINUTES Sometimes merchants are slammed, sometimes they're not busy at all. Sometimes clients show, sometimes they don't. Because Instadeal wants merchants to thrive, we try to fill in those gaps. If merchants have a cancellation or an unbooked appointment slot, they can list the availability on Quibus at a discounted price - to encourage users to take advantage of the deal! This allows merchants to fill those unbooked appointment slots. For example, if a spa has an opening at 4pm on Thursday, they can offer the appointment slot at a discounted rate and we’ll notify local users of the availability. If a user wants the deal, they'll book and pay for the service directly through the app. The merchant will then be notified of the confirmed appointment. BOOKING SYSTEM/PERSONAL ASSISTANT (Analytics) Quibus isn't limited to just Live Deals and Last Minute Deals. For merchants, the app acts as a personal assistant!
