What is useful online service “My Orders”?

As you know, today most of the fruitful ideas and working algorithms of the real world are successfully transferred to cyberspace, which provides users with a fundamentally new level of comfort and efficiency. auremar, Shutterstock.com However, there is a kind of know-how, which until now had no analogues in the World Wide Web. Such web-resources, according to experts, have bright prospects for dynamic development in the conditions of temporary absence of worthy competitors. One of the most interesting new projects from the point of view of unconditional utility for a simple user was the online service “My Orders”. The developers of this site were able to successfully implement an elegant simple idea that allows organizing competitions for the best performer of certain works, by analogy with the already operating system of government contracts. That is, each registered user can publish for free a detailed announcement about the search for a contractor who will be chosen by the employer on the basis of a comparative analysis of incoming proposals. At the same time, the My Orders service platform has become not just a meeting place for customers and performers – this innovative service organizes the process with a focus on protecting the interests of the customer. It is no secret that nowadays, the search for a team to repair an apartment or assistants when moving to another office can lead to a loss of time and money due to the weak competence of the selected artist. Moreover, even reputable companies, when working with private clients, can sometimes unsatisfactorily fulfill their commitments, which lead to inefficient additional costs. In the case of working with the My Orders service, the employer deals with executors who undergo a preliminary check. That is, an applicant is allowed to register after submitting scans of documents confirming his legal status and professional competence. The package of such documents includes registration certificates, approvals, recommendations, diplomas and other documentary evidence of qualification qualifications and the contractor’s experience in the field of expertise. Such a solution allows an order of magnitude increase in the protection of customers from unfair work. The next interesting point is that the service has a review system, which is a convenient and effective assessment mechanism, similar to the popular hotel booking platform Booking.com or the world’s largest online shopping center eBay.com. Each customer after cooperating with the selected contractor leaves on his page a positive, neutral or negative feedback on the quality of the work done. The marks for quality, reliability, punctuality and friendliness in communicating with him are not edited or deleted by the administration, so each new customer can analyze the applicant’s competence based on the real feedback from his predecessors. But the most important advantage of the service “My Orders” is to provide the customer with the opportunity to save up to 45% on services and work, performing a search for the contractor on a competitive basis. Receiving proposals from several applicants, the employer can choose a contractor offering the most favorable price-quality ratio. In addition, the “My Orders” system introduces an absolute innovation in the private tenders market – this is the customer protection mechanism, which includes resolving conflict situations through negotiations, engaging experts for expertise, contractor liability insurance. The promotion of such a service on the Internet will certainly have a positive effect on the regulation of relations between private customers and performers, which today require certain guarantees, streamlining and control.
