Many companies have adopted a mobile-first approach to develop their services primarily for mobile usage. The next paradigm shift - which is already happening - is voice-first. It prioritises voice commands over tapping on the screen. If you find yourself saying "Okay Google..." or "Hey Siri" you are ready for using voice-first services! Please.com is bringing this voice-enabled feature into the travel space.
Blockchain technology is in its infant stage. Scaling, speed, and cost haven't been completely solved (yet!) So, it may take a while for Blockchain to replace the centralised model. We see this as a massive opportunity to bring the two models together through our hybrid approach. This way we serve today’s travelers, and are perfectly positioned for a semaless transition when decentralisation takes over.
Digital Currency Rewards
To keep the platform vibrant and active with engaged users, we created our own rewards system based on a digital token called PLS. Travelers, trip creators, and service providers are all rewarded with these tokens whenever a trip has been booked and completed. Our AI-based algorithm determines how many tokens users will receive.
Pre-designed, End-to-End Trips
We offer an immense selection of pre-packaged, complete trips created by locals or avid travelers. Our trips include lodging, meals, tours, attractions, and local transportation as a total package with one price - to keep things smooth and easy! These trips can be searched by location, time span, time of year, traveler’s interests, or occasion for traveling. (Yes, we can help you book that romantic getaway that will make you look like a Don Juan!)
Merging Traditional and Sharing Economies
We are unique in offering services from the traditional and sharing economies. In other words, on Please.com you can book a hotel room or a home rental, you can make restaurant reservations or spend the evening with an amateur chef, you can choose to sign up for a professional tour or share activities with locals. All of these can be customised with your interests, time and budget, and then organised into a trip or booked individually.
At Please.com, we believe in true open source development. As our platform grows, we will keep open sourcing it. The contributors who define, build, and test new features and bugs, will be rewarded in PLS tokens for every feature they complete.
