Weriz is a platform that builds a bridge between people trying to fulfill their daily needs and local businesses seeking active customers. For a long time, business directories, from simple browsable lists to more advanced map-based applications have been the dominant solution. But they are mainly designed towards one party’s interests disregarding the other's. They’ve been either too invasive to user’s privacy, making them feel betrayed or have been too passive to the businesses' likings, leaving them unimpressed. Finding the balance here was a real challenge, but we have come up with a solution to turn this into a win-win situation where everyone feels acknowledged.Weriz informs its users about their favorite local services through advanced reactive and proactive approaches to offer the most relevant, interesting and practical results. While benefiting from tailored information, they will be paid accordingly! Weriz can also be counted as a search directory for all local businesses, so that people have no worries when visiting a new place. Instead, have fun and make some money.
We are heading toward an era of Information Explosion in which we are incessantly exposed to a great volume of data, and what we actually look for gets lost in the vast pool of the data being recommended to us. This is what we call noise, and this ever increasing noise is surrounding us, disabling us to hear the “voices” that we are actually interested in.
In the past, when cities where small, and local communities were strongly bound, whenever a new business emerged within a neighborhood, locals spread the word by mouth. It was a promising method that helped the business bloom while the local community used the services or the products that the business offered.
With the growth of cities and the emergence of metropolitan areas, local communities are almost nonexistent and people are not anymore in touch with their neighbors. This has led to an unawareness toward the events happening nearby. People might be aware that there is going to be an exhibition in another part of the city, through their online connections, maybe from Instagram, but they are not probably aware of what is happening in their neighborhood unless they have run across it.
This is neither helpful for the businesses nor for the people who are unaware of the facilities available within their vicinity. They might look for these facilities elsewhere, usually much farther than necessary.
This is where Weriz comes into play. Weriz works like a local community for people all around the world. It helps people find the nearest businesses or services they are looking for easily and quickly using reactive and proactive approaches, by either asking them what they need or predicting their interests using AI. On the user side, It is an integrated business directory and search platform that enables people to find relevant products or services to their demands and interests while having fun and earning money doing that.
