Hello and welcome to PUSH Jamaica's Local Business Directory, We're glad you've stopped by.
What is PUSHjm?
PUSHjm was designed to become Jamaica's most accurate, usable local business search engine and directory.
So, PUSH Jamaica was launched in 2009 and although the initial version of PUSHjm was created by its founders, it has evolved many times since then through user feedback and contributions.
Since we're constantly striving to make the site more usable and feature rich, odds are, tomorrow it will be different.
Why does PUSHjm exist?
PUSHjm exists because we (it's founders) thought that there should be a simple way to find local businesses anywhere in Jamaica.
We realized that, since thousands of Jamaican businesses open, close or change their details each year, we would need to have multiple avenues for us to update this data; including making it easy for users to suggest updates for their favourite businesses.
What makes PUSHjm different?
PUSHjm was built from the ground up to focus on relevance and user interaction.
Whenever you do a search on PUSHjm you'll be able to further refine it, expand it or modify it on the fly. We want to make it as quick and easy as possible for you to find the local businesses you're looking for.
PUSHjm also offers listings to all Jamaican businesses with an offline presence which is another way that we're able to stay as comprehensive and up to date with Jamaican business data as possible.
PUSHjm also has a relatively small (although rapidly growing) and very flexible team which means that when our users suggest new ways to improve the site, we can act on them without needing to get it signed off by 34 levels of management.
We listen very carefully to all feedback, comments, criticism and suggestions and have integrated many of these.
What grand ideas do you stand for?
We believe that all local, Jamaican businesses should be able to be found in a fast an efficient manner. Persons should not have to rely on one single means of locating business information.
Health Tourism is also very important to us, we believe there is great potential for Jamaica to become a leading Health Holiday destination. With that in mind we have projects in mind that will help promote the various aspects involved.
Why don't you have a phone number for PUSHjm listed on your contact page? What are you trying to hide?
We've got a great support system for responding to feedback, comments, updates, additions and removals that is designed to maximise accuracy, save everyone time and ensure that the correct business listing is being worked on - it just works through email rather than by phone.
We've found that when we use the phone for support, things are sometimes misunderstood and the wrong thing ends up getting done which just wastes everyone's time.
Since email is far less time consuming than the phone it also means that we can spend more time launching new features for the site that will enhance your experience on PUSHjm.
So tell us; what's next for PUSHjm?
Hold on...you're not one of those dang competitive spies are you?
Ok, well we were going to tell you but now you're just going to have to wait and see on this one however we can give you a hint by telling you that our aim is to turn PUSHjm into the premiere Jamaican marketplace and community that connects business owners to one another while also connecting customers to businesses.
So, stay tuned as many more features are in the works right now.
Anything else you'd like to add?
Please, please, please if you have the time, take a minute and write in to us and let us know what you liked, what you hated and what we could do better. If you run into problems or you think something is missing please tell us and we'll get it fixed/added.
We'd love to hear from you as you've helped us grow into what we are today and will guide us to be what we are tomorrow!
Thanks for taking the time to use PUSHjm.
