A Search Engine For Your Business

Are you the “Google” for your business?

As a small business owner, do you ever get messages like this?

Do you ever feel like you are the Google for the business? 

Maybe in your business, employees aren’t looking for AA batteries, but chances are good that you’ve had an employee reach out to you because they can’t find something. 

Now this may or may not be a big deal to you. Maybe these reach outs keep you connected with your employees. Or maybe they help remind you that you need to re-order certain items and supplies. 

For many businesses, what can be a bigger deal is when employees can’t find something and don’t reach out. This is when compromises occur which lead to decreased value for your customers and even potential safety incidents. 

Why wouldn’t an employee reach out if they are looking for something? Maybe they need what they are looking for right away. Maybe they don’t want to bother you while you’re away. Maybe they feel like they shouldn’t need to ask. Whatever the reason – if your employees are looking for something, it should be easy for them to find what they are looking for.

 

Creating a Search Engine For Your Business

So how can you create a real search engine for your business? (instead of you being the search engine)

Of course you have many cloud-based tools that come with search options you could pick from.  Our customers have started creating item directories for their businesses using Posts inside of their Proceed.app account.

When you set up an item directory for your business, your employees or team members can search for the item they are looking for and quickly find information on the item (like an image, location, description, safety guides, etc…)

 

What does it mean for you? 

Imagine fewer messages, empowered employees that feel they can be self-sufficient, and potentially a safer workplace. A win-win-win in our book. If you want to start creating an item directory for your business, check out this article on posts and get started within minutes of creating your account!
