Circos Helps Consumers Search for the Good Life
Concierge-like search engine connects consumers with premium lifestyle experiences
By: Circos.com, Inc.
There are millions of insights and shared experiences distributed across the Web in individual communities, blogs, and forums, but it’s nearly impossible for a high-end consumer to locate the right insights and tips for their personal needs. Conventional Internet search relies on site statistics and popularity, leaving many answers buried under layers of irrelevant Web pages or worse, overlooked altogether.
“We want consumers to be able to find the perfect experience whether they’re traveling to a new country, dining out for a special occasion, or looking for the most relaxing spa,” said Morris Sim, Co-Founder of Circos. “Circos makes this happen by matching each consumer’s unique personality and needs with the shared experiences of others like her.”
The new Circos.com features multiple ways to find the perfect hotel or restaurant. A concierge-like guided search experience at http://www.circos.com/
From a technology perspective, Circos finds insights from user-generated content by collecting millions of reviews and opinions from hundreds of influential web sites, blogs, and conversations. The company’s algorithms understand the actual meaning of an author’s words, as well as the personality and preferences of that author. This enables Circos to surface only the best, most relevant insights, and match each searcher’s query with the experiences that are precisely suited to her needs.
A privately-held company based in San Mateo, CA, Circos helps consumers determine "what to buy" or "where to go" when they're looking for products and services online. The company’s search engine at http://www.circos.com taps into the collective opinions of millions of people across the Web – delivering short, meaningful tidbits of insider knowledge to consumers, wherever they are and whenever they need it. For businesses, Circos offers Brand Karma: an online analytics tool that helps hotel and restaurant marketers win new customers and understand how they are being discussed online.
