Hi I want to do a promo spot for a system that helps people find services online, I want to use the word "Finder", but some people tell me that is only valid when referring to a person not to a "software system" so I am somewhat confused. I want to use a sentence like : PlumNet (software system) the finder of plumbers Would that be correct?


Locator is typically the word used for this kind of thing online. Store locator is one very common example. See and here and here and here for examples. That said, a lot of sites do call it a store finder instead.

  • thanks i really apreciate your answer but I'd really like to know f i can use the word "finder", i found some examples here here and here so i want to know if that makes sense for you – Alejandro Mora Mar 9 '18 at 17:07
  • To me, it does. Locator is more common with these kinds of services, but Finder is just fine. – spoko Mar 9 '18 at 17:33
