- Gio Carillo of Gio's Pizzeria spent a lot of time and money managing his entire business on paper. The lack of organization and ability to keep track of important tasks was frustrating.
- Now that Gio uses Thryv, he is able to answer potential musicians wanting to play at his venue in an instant and make quick updates to his business hours and have it pushed out to 70+ local search engines, so his customers always have the latest information.
- Today, Gio is thrilled to manage his entire business, straight from the palm of his hand, without any paper or disorganization.
Gio Carillo and his family have been running Gio's Pizzeria for over six years in the Hampden, MA area. With the family all pitching in to help out, they have a combination of more than four decades experience in this business. They proudly support their local community, participating in many charitable events and serving residents not just in Hampden, but surrounding cities as well. The one thing that Gio needed some assistance with was getting rid of the amount of paper he and his wife, Tiziana were using to run the daily operations. Gio was excited to share his thoughts about using Thryv and how it has nearly eliminated the need for paper at his restaurant.
"With a quick touch of the app on my phone, and I'm everywhere. I can change one thing, and it will go out to all the other local search engines. Thryv has also helped me with my social media and brand awareness in my community. Our customers post reviews, and now, we can respond to them immediately, whether it's positive or negative feedback."
Gio has also fallen in love with the ease of use that comes from using the Thryv Inbox feature. "We had someone that was asking a question about playing music here at our restaurant, and I was able to respond to them within seconds, right from my phone." Having the Inbox in the palm of your hand means you can answer your messages in real-time, without having your customers wait too long for a response.
Anyone from a pizza owner to a plumber can utilize these features in Thryv to stay in constant touch with their customers and update their business listing to over 70+ local search engine sites. Gio tells us, "Thryv is a must for my business, and it will change the way you do business, and since joining Thryv, we have seen a 20% increase in our business!"
