Our Sister Company, Technologies and Related Philosophies

SpeedFind®, BrandFind®, and Veristy™

One of our co-founders was an early pioneer in the mobile, local search, directory and navigation categories.  He founded and launched go2 in 1999, and go2 quickly grew to be the dominant provider of mobile local search and navigation for several years.  Among many firsts for go2, go2 and ESRI delivered the first map on a mobile phone in early 2000, and go2 and AT&T delivered the first GPS-like what' nearby service over a mobile phone in May, 2002.    

Today the SmartPoint team is passionate about the incredible 'utility' and 'informational' value of the Internet.   Yet we are also frustrated that the evolution of the Internet is driven by Advertising, to the point where by default the Internet has unfortunately evolved into a media industry, and has lost its way as a core, social information utility industry.  The Internet is a fabulous media, but it has lost it's way as a core information utility becuase  it is dominated by advertising, paid search, and more and more advertising.  Because the dominant search and other Internet companies have to focus their resources leveraging their dominant market power to track, crawl, log, monitor (creep) on users and to then predict and target advertising maximize their revenues, they have lost their way of making the Internet a core utility for all.   To a certain extent they are victims of their own success, but others need to step up and find ways to add more value to users without selling 'users' to advertisers.   

At SmartPoint we are intensely focused on micro-location addressing, information, navigation, and related services as a user-controlled, core enabling utility to power the next and future generations of micro-location based services.  We intend to be free to end users, ad-free,  and sustained by real estate owners and micro-location services providers. 

For the rest of the internet, however, we have a sister company that intends to change the world of direct search and non-navigational information services.  It's a little known fact that users know exactly what they want for the majority of their searches, yet they are usually provided millions of organic search results buried beneath numerous  paid search results and ads.  Our sister company, SpeedFind®, and it's patent pending BrandFind® and Veristry™ technologies, intend to provide a radical new way to connect consumers DIRECTLY with whatever they want over any device or service (including voice) in a simple universal one-step solution that will be substantially easier, faster, and better for consumers to find what they want, without all of the junk, clutter and noise of advertising and paid search.   SpeedFind shares our vision for much speedier and efficient access to core information.     SpeedFind's mantras are "The Fastest Way to Find®" and "Answers! Not Ads™"  Our related SmartPoint mantras are "The Smartest Way to Go" and 2) "An Address For Everything."

We collectively share common, overarching objective to "Do and Be Good!", which we like to contrast with Google's famous and much touted "Don't be Evil" mantra, which we have always thought was an embarrassingly low objective.  

SmartPoint and SmartAddresses will go a long way to instantly connect users directly with the locations they want, and in that regard SmartPoint and SpeedFind have overlapping missions.  Our companies are unlikely to ever be as profitable as Google or Amazon, but we will never clutter what users want with a lot of junk advertising from competitors, aggregators, and others trying to steal users, and we will always try to help users get where they want to go, or find what they want to find, as quickly, easily, efficiently as possible.

SmartPoint® Features

Mobilizing Locations®

Every SmartPoint location automatically gets dozens of features TOTALLY controlled by the creator/owner.   Way too many to list.   

Here are just a few of the more important ones: 

Location Data Privacy

Totally Public, Totally Private, and Everything In Between

Owner's can choose from  a wide range of privacy options, including who can access, (including password protections), the precision of the location (from a pinpoint to a big obscure area), whether to publish or enable Google and others to crawl, index and display in search results or keep totally private. 

Owner's can also clone and create temporary SmartAddress locations that disappear after they are used or at some preset time -- like a "SnapChat for Locations!"  

Pinpoint Location Accuracy

Drag and Drop the Pin to Any Location 

Correct any Google or other map/directions errors - select map type (satellite, street map, etc.), scale, define and label zones or areas, etc.  You customize your map for your locations and add whatever information you want.   Provide 'to the door' micro-routing, or just define and show a general area -- you control what the users see.

Soon our Exclusive AddressPlus and MicroMap technologies will provide sub 1-meter accuracy with just a few numbers.   Imagine telling the gardener EXACTLY where the sprinkler head is broken with a simple "4328"

MicroMap™ AddressPlus® Code.   

 

Smart Homes

The Address of the Future, Available Today

SmartPoint is the exclusive provider of SmartAddress® technology for any home, building, apartment, or other place.  We help you create, manage and selectively share any location  in and around your home or other place -- from the your own Internet of Things ("IoT") locations to "last mile" delivery or other directions, parking and other tips and tricks for visitors. 


Built 'By the World, For the World™" SmartPoint lets anyone take 'ownership and control' of their SmartAddress locations and then easily provide anyone the absolute easiest, best and most efficient way to find and navigate to their home or other location.  Or find any device or location in or around their home.     For deliveries, we make it easy for anyone to create SmartPoint micro-locations for delivery and parking directions and always control if, when, how, and who can use that information.   

We want to give everyone total "ownership and control" of all of their micro-location information with SmartAddress locations, enable them to protect their privacy, but also help everyone help others save time, money and fuel finding and visiting them in one simple, unified SmartPoint micro-location system that will work everywhere on everything.
