Weriz is a platform that builds a bridge between people trying to fulfill their daily needs and local businesses seeking active customers. For a long time, business directories, from simple browsable lists to more advanced map-based applications have been the dominant solution. But they are mainly designed towards one party’s interests disregarding the other’s. They’ve been either too invasive to user’s privacy, making them feel betrayed or have been too passive to the the businesses’ likings, leaving them unimpressed. Finding the balance here was a real challenge, but we have come up with a solution to turn this into a win-win situation where everyone feels acknowledged.
