The word ‘beta’ refers to a stage in the software development process. When developers begin any new project, it will typically go through one or more stages of development, namely ‘alpha’, ‘beta’, and finally ‘stable’. Alpha releases are when developers test websites and software internally before releasing the first version to the public; the beta version. While the project is in ‘beta’ release it’s a chance for developers to iron out any public-facing problems (known in the industry as ‘bugs’) and solicit feedback from those using the website/software (that’s you) before finally releasing the project as ‘stable’.
Don’t worry, in all likeliness we will know about the issue and we will be working hard in the background to fix minor issues that will lead up to our final stable release. In the meantime, if you spot anything you think is an issue, please don’t hesitate to contact us and we’ll address it as soon as we can.

Together with our web developers and the businesses that support “Minority Economic Development” we have completely re-imagined the promotion of minority owned businesses and how to help those businesses expand their footprint on and off the web to create a better user experience for both business owners and consumers. We’ve used the latest development techniques and standards to create an easy-to-use yet comprehensive “Business Listing and Cashback website we think you’ll love. Opportunities for businesses and consumers are now updated live so you can be sure you’re viewing the very latest prices and details.
