An app called Traista helps people save money by finding their lost item or great shopping deals.
The startup is run by three Romanian friends, all of whom have a background and experience in mobile software development.
This company and its innovative new app are all about finding things. Traista can help users find prized possessions that would otherwise be lost for a long time or forever. A lot of the functionality of Traista involves crowdsourcing, where a community of users will help others find deals in their communities.
Traista community members will post shopping deals from department stores and small businesses so others can save money on whatever they’re buying next.
Whether it's a pet, an automobile or a discount at a local business, the Traista app is all about becoming a user’s own personal “lost and found.” Along with helping users to find lost items, it's a matchmaker for businesses and customers.
This Romanian-operated business is looking to promote its multiservice app worldwide.
The clean and intuitive design is simple and fast, making it easy to post missing or found items and sales from all over.
“We love the flexibility of being a small startup with decisions made on the fly between us, via Slack or group messages," Sorin Puscau, one of Traista’s founders, told Balkan Business Wire.
Traista is a new business, just launched in December. It mostly operates out of Phoenix but wants to achieve a global footprint.
“We're working hard to grow it.” Puscau said, adding the company is developing the app for Apple's iOS; currently, it's only live in Google Play for Android devices.
“The more people use it, the better it gets,” Puscau said. “It's a great and easy way for people to find lost things, including shopping deals.”
There are also benefits for businesses. Puscau highlighted the ability to offer discounts and coupons through the app.
“It's great for businesses to have the lost and found feature as an additional value for customers, but also to broadcast and advertise,” Puscau said. “The fact that they don’t have to spend money on building their own, app is another aspect businesses should take in consideration.”
“It helps all consumers to save money, as well as providing growth opportunities to small businesses that cannot compete with big players, which can afford thousands of dollars a month in advertising,” Sorin said.
The Traista app is available worldwide and has been translated into several languages including Spanish, Portuguese, French, Italian, German and Russian.
