Andover, MA. (PRWEB) January 5, 2009
Jaz'd!, the leader in on-line B2B directory driven marketing as a service, today announced that it has recently formed a joint partnership with Purchasing® magazine to revolutionize the Chemical Yellow Pages industry directory. The new Chemical Yellow Pages which houses over 7,500 chemical industry companies today will launch in the spring of 2009.
"The partnership between Jaz'd! and Purchasing® magazine brings together a state-of-the art Web 2.0 Directory platform, deep chemical industry focus and the preeminent brand in procurement," says Jamie Bedard, Founder and CEO of Jaz'd!. In a recently completed survey of chemical procurement executives, over 87% of all respondents say industry directories are extremely valuable to their procurement efforts. Yet 70% of those respondents cite significant shortcomings in current directory offerings and say they want to see deeper chemical expertise, peer ratings and reviews, side-by-side product comparisons, and access to others with similar procurement needs. "To do their jobs in today's global marketplace, buyers need comprehensive information. This partnership allows us to deliver more information to chemical buyers, more rapidly than ever before" says Purchasing Publisher Kathy Doyle. "Both our readers and advertisers continue to demand these types of informative, innovative Web platforms, to help them find the best business partners."
