ReedLink, the vertical search engine, has recently revamped its keyword search. B2B professionals can now make more specific searches, with results that are more relevant to their search term, whether searching for a particular product model, a company or an article.
This new search functionality can help B2B professionals such scientists, engineers and technicians search more precisely, resulting in more efficient use of their time and resources. Most impressive about the revamped keyword search functionality, is the ability to search at a product attribute level, searching by parameters such as speed, weight or capacity.
For example, a lab procurement manager interested in purchasing a halogen lamp with a maximum voltage of 120, can enter “halogen lamp 120 V” under a Spec search, and will receive a list of halogen lamps, from various companies, that fit the required specification. A user can also search by model number. This functionality allows to B2B professionals to search through over 400,000 products and 55,000 articles in the ReedLink.
Advanced keyword searching provides users with an additional search option, searching for product specifications on ReedLink. Users can use filters to identify ranges or exact specifications. For example, “fiber optic attenuators” can be filtered by wavelength size, fiber type, or location, allowing users to view all possible parameters for a product. In addition, parametric search allows users to customize the parameters of their search. For example, a search for a “degreaser,” can be customized based on parameters including capacity and boiling point.
ReedLink’s revamped keyword search will be a valuable resource to business professionals who know exactly what they are looking for and want to find it fast without wading through a sea of search results.
“Spec level keyword search is a great addition to ReedLink. By providing a search with refined, more relevant results, ReedLink helps B2B professionals make more informed sourcing decisions, in an environment with an increasing array of choices. This will create a better user experience overall.” says Todd Baker, VP of ReedLink.
ReedLink is the premier vertical search engine for locating products, product specifications, and companies, connecting buyers and suppliers in the Manufacturing, Life Science, and Construction markets.
