Need engineered a mobile app that can combine the elements of telepresence apps Looxcie Live/ooVoo, on demand delivery apps such as Uber , Exec, Postmates that utilize GPS tracking, selection of agent, member login sign up screen, in app texting communication, ability for agent to scan upc codes, qr codes, image recognition such as google goggles and transmit the information back to the customer.
Streaming live video would take advantage of LTE speeds on a mobile network. Also needed is an ability to have the agent buy for the customer via a proxy payment system such as paypal or other method.
This system is to have delivery/personal assistant on demand agents use a mobile device such as the Galaxy Note loaded with this dedicated app be able to have a customer request a delivery or errand and have it locate the best available assistant located on a visual gps map. The assistant can transmit back to the customer via live streaming, visual inspection of the goods and communicate live with the customer. One the goods are selected the assistant would pay for the goods via a proxy payment system which would also be charged for the delivery service.. The delivery can be tracked via gps by the customer on an app or via a website login.
Customers would have their own account and can have a list of previous transactions, favorite drivers with feedback, stored proxy payment method, shopping lists.
Having a through understanding of how to provide the best live video transmission is key. It also must be very user friendly for both the mobile assistant and the customer but yet provide data on the back-end for the company.
Ability to understand methods and strengths of existing technologies and startups in the field is very important.
Currently we have done pilot program using AT&T Video Capture and Xora but found that a dedicated app that is very user friendly for e-commerce is what is needed.
