About Us

Katalog Firm

On April 1st of 2000 version Beta 1.00 of Katalog Firm search engine of Polish business and organizations in the United States has been released. The idea behind Katalog Firm is to make a better flow of information between Polish business and organizations and Polish communities across the USA.

How it works?

Katalog Firm It is a  localized search engine for minorities and it is free for both users and businesses. Users by typing in keywords, zip code, town or address receive results with corresponding business and organizations relevant to the word. By signing agreements with Google Katalog Firm is able to display map geo representation of the results. The site is prepared for both Polish and English speaking users. Sample searches could be: “Dentist” in “Norridge”, Night club” in “New York,”  “Church” in “Chicago”

How Katalog Firm is different from other US Polish business registries like “Informator Polnijny” or “Bazarynka”?

It is end user centralized meaning every respond to user search request is being handled in such a way that user gets results closest to the user’s search area. But most of all it is not only free to the user only  but also free for businesses, so every business or organization can easily register thru an online form  and get seen by hundreds if not thousands users per month.

So how Katalog Firm makes a living?

Well, every website/portal or web based project is being faced with expenses such as server cost, data traffic fees, and other. Besides the free business account, Katalog Firm offers paid accounts called: “Silver Member” and “Gold Member”, Businesses registering for those accounts, for small yearly fee get to put extra information, images, or logos that better describe their business.

Plans for future?

We never stop on increasing ratio of relevant results per search, increasing security for the system; we plan to work closer with Google to get websites for Polish in the USA profiled for Katalog Firm. We also plan to update to latest available cutting edge technologies. Besides all that we plan to make it even more convenient by deploying a solution for mobile devices as well.
