RestUp is a mobile application, as well as website, that provides a marketplace of trusted, convenient, and affordable caregivers to families on demand. Simply put, this app is the Uber of caregiving services.
The app provides a map of nearby caregivers available to assist families with their loved ones. Each caregiver's profile is integrated with that of his or her Facebook or LinkedIn profile. Additionally, an option to link to a video introduction is available. A background check and rating system has also been built into the app.
All payments are handled via the app, using the service Stripe, for easy withdrawal from the user's bank account.
For ease in determining the final bill charged to the user, a timeclock is used which can only be initiated when the caregiver is close to the user's home. Then, the caregiver is automatically clocked out when leaving. Caregivers are independent contractors, and their 1099s will be handled via Paychex Payroll. A back-end administrative page provides for easy export to Paychex Payroll representatives.
