San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) December 11, 2013
WayPart Inc. released version 1.8 of their industrial supply search engine. It now boasts a database of over 21 million parts from more than 18,000 manufacturers.
The WayPart.com search engine features a proprietary part number search technology that “corrects misspelled part numbers” says, Sherif Danish PhD, Chief Scientist and head engineer at WayPart, Inc.
“We are providing a sort of ‘did you mean?’ solution for part number search...Our technology helps correct misspelled and transposed part numbers.” He described use cases as users typing ‘VCCP2FD’ when they meant UCCP2FD, or ‘L1D326G7’ when they meant ‘LC1D326G7’. WayPart’s results showed users several results, and they selected the one they were actually looking for. “You don’t get these kind of results with traditional search engines” added Dr. Danish. “It allows for faster, more user friendly searches, and combined with our proprietary database makes B2B procurement more like B2C shopping.”
Waypart.com also features cross reference capabilities, catalog extension and basic competitive pricing tools for suppliers. “We are constantly building tools for wholesaler distributors in the US… our partners need real time data to price and stock their e-stores competitively,” says Dr Danish. B2B e-commerce is growing and having easy to use online tools is a result of this new digital age.
