There’s not much to report about our Directory this week, safe to say that we are now four weeks into Beta testing and have nearly 500 businesses involved in the tests. The expansion of the Directory is revealing some interesting challenges in terms of search speed and categorization which we are hoping to resolve during September. Once these final teething problems are resolved we will be in a position to add an additional 110,000 business listings. At that point we believe the Directory will be the UK’s ultimate tool for property related information and contacts. We would very much appreciate further user tests of the Directory if you have a spare few minutes. Please email any questions or constructive feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org
