“Customers tell us they need a partner to help them increase productivity and profitability, especially in this tough economy,” said Sam Kim, vice president, eCommerce. “Our new ‘search and select’ tool makes it easy for customers to find the products they need and consolidate their purchases on grainger.com, which allows them to be more productive and improve their bottom line.”
Grainger’s new online “search and select” tool is powered by Endeca Technologies, a search applications company, and is said to include a number of features to help customers quickly and easily search for, compare, and purchase the right products to meet their needs, including:
• Guided search navigation that uses product specifications such as keywords, item numbers, national stocking numbers, cross-reference numbers, and more.
• Multiple sorting options that allow customers to sort their search results by price, brand, category, and delivery.
• Helpful product icons that assist customers in identifying products with specific properties such as “green.”
• Product category landing pages that have relevant and useful information on product use, selection, and reference information.
For more information on the new search feature, go to www.grainger.com/newsearch.
