BUSINESSBOOK is an app that works as five apps simultaneously and this app is developed by a Gujarati.
Imagine a mobile app that acts as a business directory, allows users to look for jobs, buy & sell property, deal in used goods, and even make posts on their timeline. This kind of an all-in-one super app is not a mere imagination but is already a reality.
Rajkot resident Jignesh Lakkad, who holds a Master’s degree in Information Technology, is the creator of Businessbook, the super app that boasts of the above features and much more.
Jignesh, partner at Webstar Infoway Pvt Ltd., launched Businessbook as a business directory on February 7, 2020. Incidentally, he met with an accident within some days and was bed-ridden for six weeks. While he was recuperating, the Covid-19 pandemic struck, and a nationwide lockdown was imposed. The extended lockdown resulted in many people losing their jobs and means of livelihood.
“It was a difficult time for everyone, and I spent several days thinking about how I could help others. I started work on adding more features to Businessbook after realizing it would enhance the app’s utility and help people earn money,” says Jignesh about the super app.
Businessbook mainly has seven features. The first is Business Directory, which allows users to register their businesses by adding details such as name, products, location, etc. The digital branding helps businesses get new customers and expand.
The second feature is Job Vacancy, an extremely handy tool for job seekers and employers. Candidates can share their resumes using the feature with companies listed on the app, while companies looking for employees can post their job requirements.
Businessbook also allows users to rent, buy, and sell property, while the fourth feature allows buying and selling of used products such as furniture, mobile phone, vehicles, electronic appliances, refrigerators, etc.
Users can also add posts, including text and photos, to their timelines on the app.
The app’s sixth feature is Khatavahi, a tool that allows users to record and track daily financial transactions.
The seventh feature allows users to earn money by referring businesses to register on the app. The app pays Rs. 50 for each referral.
“Businessbook has features for everyone, but it is handy for those looking for information about businesses in nearby areas. Users can easily get details about different kinds of businesses using the app. Moreover, they can get Rs. 50 per referral, and there is no limit on how many referrals they make,” says Jignesh, adding a pan-India business directory is in the making.
