Throughout the course of the pandemic, thousands of companies have been forced to shut down as they don’t provide a particular service. Hospitality sector for example have been impact the most financially.

There are many reasons why businesses are forced to shut down throughout the pandemic. Some examples are:
• They’re sector of business is not considered essential.
• They’re unable to provide social distancing.
• Depending on the service they provide they could be considered not to open for a long period of time.

Given the restrictions, we have seen some businesses adapt under these circumstances.

Businesses delivering they’re services to customer homes, whereas previously that wasn’t the case. We’ve also seen a huge increase in food trucks and café trucks, in some cases these maybe some new ventures for businesses but also brands are following in this direction for their business to survive.

This project is a platform to help those looking to adapt under these new circumstances. Providing customers with different methods of retrieving data. For example, customers can use a web application or retrieve data through json format if they prefer.

Customers of this project are businesses who don’t provide the all the necessary services required to stay open. Allowing them to find businesses/people in their area willing to work together.

Examples would be:
• Food trucks or Café trucks looking for open area where they can park and provide a service.
• Pubs looking for catering service who can set up shop quickly on their premises.
• Gastropubs and restaurants looking for delivery service to deliver their products to customer homes.

Given the reasons mentioned above, I believe this project is necessary, as it gives businesses a platform for surviving lockdowns.

One of the key benefits of this project is to bring businesses closer together. When the pandemic is over, I think many businesses will change their approach and services.
