Search only shows you what you enter. Don’t limit yourself.

“…there are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns – the ones we don’t know we don’t know.”

The known knowns

Search is great at quickly spitting out everything under the sun about topics you search for, that it knows about. That’s why Google and Bing are such great tools. With search you’ll get millions of “hits” on thousands of pages based on the entry you make.

 

 

Do you really need 1.9M results? Is there value? Let them continue with that.

The problem:

Search only shows what you ask. Nothing more.

The known unknowns

Search begins to break down with content we don’t know about. Search will try to offer suggestive queries to help you form a query. But search doesn’t show you anything “close” to what you search to help you.

 

 

Sidekick’s unique experience blows that world wide open. Suddenly you’ll be able to see adjacent segments and discover far more about what’s out there, specialty solutions, niche segments and providers you never knew existed.

Unknown Unknowns

Search is terrible when it comes to discovery of things you aren’t aware of. Honestly, it’s not their fault. They aren’t a map.

Sidekick is that map.

Sidekick shows you an interactive map of all software solutions or services. Sidekick even shows a world map of where those services are located.

There are things you know and that’s awesome! Sidekick’s here to help you navigate through the stuff you don’t know. And there’s a lot more out there you didn’t even realize.
