To help generate sales through the Up Store, we are creating a two part program. First, we are creating a hard copy catalogue that has barcodes attached to each product. Second, we need some help with this part.
We need an app written that will work with both android and apple devices. The Associate will beable to scan the barcode and the app will help the Associate finalize the sale.
This app will be designed with the idea that we are offering the Homeless employment. The app will have a screen that has the Associate’s profile. On that profile the Associate’s recruiting video will be available for the person that the Associate is talking too, to see. This video should help establish that the Associate is homeless and trying to work his or her way off of the streets.
The app would also collect the commission information and every three days the Associate will have money paid to a prepaid debit card that is given to him or her when they are recruited.
When the app is set up on the phone a list of options will be available. The app will ask the Associate if he or she would like to have a part of each payment out of the commission check to pay the phone bill. If the Associate selects yes, app phone bill is paid for by the app before it due date.
Another option will be to pay for a monthly pass for public transit.
Like I said this app that we will be calling the Up Store Associate app, is going to be designed to help the Homeless get off of the streets. So it will have to have everything needed to work their business autonomously. We know that programs like this work because Street Roots has used this modle for years. But once the app is up and running it will have another option that Street Roots and Uber both lack. The Associate will be able to ask the app to set aside money, so he or she can better save for first and last months rent.
It all sound great right? Well non of this can happen until we can find someone who can code that would agree to a 7 percent royalty off of what the app generates. This could mean an income for years to come.
