Timeo is a brand new platform which addresses the widespread consumer need for accurate and constantly updated information about services including convenience stores, post offices, beauty parlors and more.

August 20, 2015 (FPRC) -- Consumers would agree that the web has expanded significantly during the last decade and became the best source of information about every aspect of our daily life. Still, there are some things that are difficult to cover in the online world – for instance the complexities of brick-and-mortar stores, which relocate, introduce new store closing times or change their contact information. When looking for this kind of information, users are usually left to browse the incredibly complex business directories which only make them lose time and get frustrated.
Searching for store information, we're often forced to use resources which are fragmentary, outdated or downright inaccurate. Fortunately, web developers are slowly recognizing this growing consumer need and are today building novel platforms dedicated exclusively to practical information about brick-and-mortar businesses. An example of such a service is Timeo.co.uk, a brand new platform offering store profiles for all ventures located in the UK.
What kind of information can users find online?
Consumers will easily appreciate the value of services like Timeo.co.uk because they're aware of how much effort it takes to find store information online. When looking for that kind of data, users usually want to know things like store opening times, addresses and contact information.
This is especially true for searches made in mobile environments and visible in strategies used by developers for optimizing mobile websites to serve this purpose. When about town, users aren't interested in employee profiles or the shop's history – they have no time to lose on browsing through information-heavy pages, but just get what they want as fast as possible.
Facing a business directory instead of a store website, average web users usually get discouraged by their complexity – they offer lots of functionalities, which are of value if one knows how to use them. But our user is in a hurry and has no time for learning about how to effectively use a complex business directory. That's when platforms like Timeo.co.uk come in – their understandable and relatively simple structure hides heaps of data and helps users to quickly access information they need.
Timeo.co.uk displays detailed information for every UK store, pharmacy, beauty parlor, post office or convenience store. Checking a post office, for instance, users can access a full profile page including contact information, complete address, as well as constantly updated post office opening times.
Why is Timeo.co.uk an alternative to directories?
One can only see the value of such alternative options for searching information about stores when analyzing a particular situation. Let's imagine a couple of users who suddenly realize that they don't have a gift for a birthday party set in an hour. Knowing that the timing isn't on their side – it's late evening – they'll be desperately looking for stores open at this hour. They'll probably try their favorite search engine to check stores with unusual opening time, rather than rushing off to the nearest shopping street.
Ending up in a selection of different business directories, users will get partial store information, and it's likely that it's not what they're looking for or it's outdated, limiting their chances at finding an open store.
Using Timeo.co.uk, it will take them a few clicks to find exactly what they're looking for. By typing the name of the store and choosing a location, they'll instantly see relevant store closing times. They can also search by category of business and check opening times of their results to see which stores are open at this hour. Once they're about to set out, they can give the store a call to check whether the item they need is in stock.
Timeo.co.uk is a service which simply makes consumer lives easier – access to key information about shops, pharmacies, restaurants, post offices and other services is bound to be appreciated by UK audiences. And with a good reason – in its essence, this functional service caters to a widespread consumer need for practical information about brick-and-mortar stores.
