Groofer saves time on search.
Search is an isolated activity
Research shows that information workers may spend as much as 20% of their working time searching for information on the web. Yet, searching is still an individual pursuit. It follows the same process: search - select and click on a result - review - and back to search – until you find what you are looking for.
Groofer makes search social
How useful would it be if your search process was informed by what your colleagues or team members have already done? Groofer does just that by showing your team’s collective input while you search. You can save time and effort by focusing only on the results most relevant to your organization.
Groofer accumulates organizational knowledge
Sharing via email is ineffective
Ok. So now that you’ve found what you’re looking for, you need to share it with your team. The usual process of emailing a link along with your comments only reaches a few individuals. You may receive multiple replies, but information shared in an email thread is as good as lost. While locked in your email archives, t
hese shared exchanges could be useful for members of your team who perform the same search at a later time.
Groofer allows shared information to be found easily
Groofer accumulates this organizational knowledge automatically. Every discussion is tied to individual search results and appears in-context when it is displayed. Knowing what others in your organization have had to say gives you a head start to quickly finding the most relevant results regardless of how they are ranked. And finding the accumulated knowledge in your normal search process takes nothing away from your search experience.

Search often focuses on the winners
When searching the web, most of us look no further than the first page for relevant results. But with thousands of search results on every business term, the right information we’re looking for is often burried in later pages.
Groofer bubbles up buried results
Groofer let’s you leverage the hard work of the dedicated searchers in your organization who take the time to look through multiple pages of results and bubbles up their selections for you to consider. This applies as well to news and blog feeds that are rated highly by your team. Instead of scanning through hundreds of articles or search results all by yourself, Groofer gets you to the ones that your co-workers already recommend. And in the process, you discover new results or articles that you would have otherwise missed!
