The Web has virtually brought the world to our fingertips, but the tradeoff can often be "too much information." The massive and ever-expanding supply of information available on the Internet is making it more difficult and time-consuming for Web surfers to find the exact information they seek. Business, however, will not slow down for a Web-search. Business professionals need tools to make their Web-browsing fast and straightforward.
Website developers Sigridur Kristjansdottir and Sigurdur Arnorsson have announced such a tool. The Iceland-based development team has unveiled FexIT.com, a new website that combines the comprehensiveness of a business directory with the power of a Web-search.
Kristjansdottir explained, "FexIT.com represents an integrated approach to Web-searching for business. By streamlining searches and delivering intelligent results, it breaks new ground in managing the flow and usefulness of business information on the Web."
The hallmark of FexIT.com is its ability to "intuit" the next steps of a search. Whether users are seeking general business information or specific business terms, FexIT.com is designed to deliver the most relevant results while always providing the option to take a search even further. Users can continue with a search term through both the FexIT.com directory and search engine.
FexIT.com consists of five distinct components that can be accessed individually or integrated to produce advanced search results:
-fexDIRECTORY: a directory of business websites on an international scale. The directory contains hundreds of thousands of sites catalogued into categories and subcategories. Search results link to these subcategories, allowing users to view all of the websites in them.
-fexSEARCH: a "meta-search" engine that enables users to conduct a search within a search. For example, users conducting a "fast" search can expand the search with an "intelligent," "comprehensive," or "thorough" search option in one of a number of languages and in a particular geographical region. Along the way, FexIT.com provides tips for refining the search.
-fexWORDS: a cross-referencing tool that helps users find links to definitions of business words, phrases, and acronyms. This tool features alphabetical listings of acronyms, lists of words and phrases by subject, and the option to identify similar words and phrases.
-fexNEWS: a listing of the latest business headlines from quality news sources. Users can conduct specific news searches or click onto links to news by country or topic.
-"Business in the News": a service that follows up on hot business news topics to ensure that users have the most current links to related information. One of the first news items this feature is covering is the economic impact of tsunami devastation in Southeast Asia.
"The concept behind FexIT.com is to provide a premier source of business information for people who can really use it," said Arnorsson. "We think the site will help professionals optimize their Web-searches and gain precise information for numerous applications."
FexIT.com's creators have been developing websites since 1996, specializing in Web guides and directories. Their sites have generated millions of visitors.
