JomOffers - Feature-rich reverse auction site is here!

We cater to multiple clients across domains and the consistent feedback that we receive has been that the extensions we create are always created taking into consideration the pain points for that industry. When we were approached by our existing clients about their requirement of an auction site that was versatile, fast, and responsive, we saw an opportunity. 

JomOffers is an extension that lets you create reverse auction sites easily. It comes loaded with host of features that let you create a site that is as per your requirements. Apart from imbibing standard Joomla properties, we have provided additional customization features that can help you customize the site as you need.

Lets take a look at some of features that JomOffers provides - 

Reverse auction site - Traditional auction sites mean you have to run through multiple contractors and shortlist a few. YOu then have to decide based on these available options. While with reverse auction, you can let your customers view offers placed by multiple contractors, and then decide the best offer that they would like to take up.Offers - Contractors too no longer have to compromise on payments. They can place a bid and provide days they will take to complete the assignment.Paid featured listings - Let your customers attract more audience to their listing by making their listing a paid featured listing. Featured listings are placed at the beginning of the listing page.Custom field creation - Personalize and customize the site by adding fields as per your business needs. Custom fields can include explaining location with a location description, nearest airport or explaining an object facilities group by describing facilities, outside area or suitability.

Gorgeous look and colour schemes. This extension was created taking into account feedback received by customers who were unhappy with the look and feel of other booking templates. The colour schemes are pleasant and very easy on the eyes.

If you have been waiting for a perfect extension that is flexible and sophisticated, your wait has just ended. Visit us at comdev.eu to learn more about JomOffers.

Why your property listing site is doing it all wrong and how to fix it

Just a couple of days back, we had a client explain a situation he faced with a customer. Now, this customer wanted to buy a property in London and was using the client’s property listing site to understand his choices. Though our client was excited and hoping this deal clicks, the deal did not go through. Why you ask? The simple reason being that the way our client’s site was structured! It turns out the customer was not able to find listings as per his preferences due to the site limitations.

 

Property listing sites are not just a simple search, they need to be the GOOGLE of search. This means your customers need to find all your listings that are applicable to their search in matter of minutes and in the easiest way possible. That is exactly what the Property Plan template by Comdev intends to do!

Star and circles ratings now available with JomDirectory

When searching for a restaurant for a quite dinner or a vacation destination, it really helps to read up about the reviews of that place. Just last month, when we decided to go for a team outing, we were dumbstruck with the amount of options available. It is quite easy to get drowned into the web of selections. This is exactly when we zeroed on couple of places and read up some reviews, what kind of ratings it had and also the kind of people who visited the place. This research helped us select a place that catered to everyone from the team.

This situation we faced helped us understand the kind of research customers perform before investing in a service or product. Thus, we bring to our customers the capability to provide star and circles ratings with JomDirectory.

What is star and circles ratings?

Star rating lets you provide the customers with options to rate their favourite place or services that they used based on their experience. Customers have the freedom to provide a rating of 1 to 5. When the customer writes a review, he needs to provide star ratings for multiple parameters given. Like, in the following case of a rental, customers need to grade the rental based on multiple parameters.

For the circles ratings, it is recommended for in this case.

After the customer writes the review, the ratings are collated to create an average score of the property for that review and is reflected as follows.
