Savvy Solutions to Simple Problems, One Tool at a Time

MichaelPratt

Products should solve problems. So, every day, we try to make more products that solve more problems in less time – but that’s only half the story. In a market criss-crossed with roads from problem to solution, helping consumers pick the right path is just as important as making the right product. Failing to check both boxes leads to frustrated consumers and futile R&D investments.

The digital revolution has brought supplier and consumer closer than ever before, boosting efficiency in the sales cycle and cutting prices just about everywhere. But, the salesmen of yesteryear did more than just take a cut and make everything slower – they connected consumers with products that could solve their problems, and were incentivized to do so. Money talks.

Intuit’s TurboTax software brought this lost art into the present by making a scary process simple (and even fun). No longer was filing taxes about endless paperwork and trying not to get carpal tunnel – it was about telling the story of your year, and letting the software do the rest. And the best part? It’s all just algorithms! No lies, no used car salesmen, no phone tag, no commissions, and no stress.

It’s a great idea. It saves the supplier money, saves the consumer time, and all but eliminates the frustration of buying the wrong product. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and now there’s a tool to help you find just about anything. We’ve put together some of our favorites – and we even got in on the fun and built one of our own. Because connecting you with the right product helps us take you further.
