VConnect isn’t just a business search engine; it’s a discovery and engagement platform,” Rustagi of VConnect says.
“This redesign is our best attempt yet at making that possible. With our businesses lists feature, users can find the best businesses for them through a crowd insight. They can also go ahead and transact with those companies if they want,” he adds.
VConnect says the new search bar is set against beautiful cityscapes across Nigeria. ”The company is also introducing business lists, a curation tool which helps people recommend the best or most relevant businesses in a category”.
The review engine has also been updated to serve users adaptive content that eases the process of leaving reviews on businesses they visit. “We are excited about this,” Ramanathan Solayappan, VConnect’s Product Manager says.
“This redesign doesn’t just provide the best user-experience in the history of VConnect, the new functionalities mean users can access information in an easy, relatable and deeply human way. We’ve stripped away the non-essentials to leave only the most relevant, distraction-free experience for our users.”
