Denver, CO (PRWEB) May 10, 2006
WAND, Inc., a leading directory technology provider, today announced the launch of the NEC Business Directory, powered by the WAND Product and Service Taxonomy. The NEC Business Directory, located at http://www.nec-bd.com will be part of the WAND Network of seventeen business directories operated in eleven languages by WAND partners around the globe. Using the WAND Taxonomy of 120,000 terms in both English and Japanese, users will be able to find precision lists of suppliers of nearly any product or service.
NEC will market the http://www.nec-bd.com directory to Japanese companies. Any company can sign up for a free basic listing which includes basic contact information as well as product and service category information. Priority placement, web page and email links, detailed product catalogs, and additional information pages are all available as paid enhancements to the free basic listing.
Participation in the WAND Network of Directories means that companies registering on the NEC Business Directory will get an identical listing each of the other directories in WAND’s network. This multi-publishing benefit provides unmatched distribution and exposure for participating companies in major markets around the world. The WAND Network continues to expand its coverage and expects to add 5-10 additional directories over the next twelve months. The NEC Business Directory is just the latest addition on the network.
“We are proud to be partnering with NEC for what will be the premier business to business directory in Japan,” commented WAND’s CEO, Ross A. Leher. “NEC’s adoption of the WAND Taxonomy and participation in the WAND Directory Network is another welcome validation of WAND’s practical technologies.” He went on to say that the precision classification that the WAND Taxonomy provides will allow buyers to source for parts and materials from Japanese companies more efficiently than ever before.
