We would need a customized platform similar to Yelp (Yelp DOT com, yelp user mobile app, yelp business app & admin site). This platform may include business(/point-of-interest) categories in addition to restaurants. Restful API architecture for future extendibility.
Among the list of features the following would be required:
User mobile App -
User facing mobile app which would allow user to :
· Login with phone no./ social network/ email id.
· OTP confirmation.
· Explicitly search for point-of-interest near him.
· Display location based point of interest near him (both map and list version).
· Interlinking between markers on map and list (similar to yelp). This mean, for example, selecting a point-of-interest on list would highlight the marker in map.
· Filter The numbers of point-of-interest to show could be configured by user based on area size, liked and category selected.
· History page last visited business.
· Provide review on the point-of-interest.
· Search option to view promotion/event on new location.
· Share point-of-interest with friends through social (facebook, twitter, whatsapp, email, etc)
· Direction to business from present location
· Event & promotion bookmark option.
