DirectIndustry launches PDF catalogue search service


DirectIndustry has launched a major new service allowing engineers to search PDF catalogues by key word. The search engine instantly isolates the required text or datasheet from multiple catalogues of hundreds of pages in length.

“This demonstrates our principle of organising information intuitively to engineers, for fast and effective research.” Corentin Thiercelin, DirectIndustry CEO.

Each search generates a summary of relevant pages enabling users to quickly select the most pertinent one and click on. A convenient tool bar allows them to print out the page, browse the surrounding pages, or send an email request directly to the manufacturer:

“I go online to save time so it can be frustrating to have to download and print out big PDF files when there’s probably only one or two pages that interest me. This kind of service is great. It’s what the internet is all about” -- Pat Enzler R&D, Nilfisk Advance USA.

“I don’t want a catalogue and a whole load of paper – I just want specific information that’s hidden somewhere in there. This is a nice step in the right direction and saves me a lot of time” -- Richard Brazee, R&D, Invensys Process Incorporation USA

“It saves me a lot of time and hassle. Like all good ideas you wonder why it took so long!” -- Bob Back, R&D Emerson Motors

For exhibitors the service is free, unlimited and uses existing content. Their PDF files are simply downloaded onto DirectIndustry making data that is otherwise buried away ultra accessible to its target audience. For visitors the service is super rapid since the original images have been converted from PDFs into lighter JPEGs.

“We’re popular amongst engineers because we show products and information the way they want to and are sourcing them. It’s quicker and easier to source industrial products on DirectIndustry than any where else on the web. This is why people come back to us again and again – in short we’ve become their search tool for industrial products and solutions.” Corentin Thiercelin.

With over 2 million professionals a month sourcing from over 4900 global brands in 23 industrial categories, DirectIndustry has become a veritable hub connecting engineers with manufacturers.
