How effective are your sourcing methods?

  • General Search Engines Provide General Results

    Well known search engines such as Google are great for general purpose searching, but when it comes to targeted searches - you need to cut out the noise. Manufacturing Network is the Search Engine built for you.

  • Directories are Old News & Poorly Categorised

    Suppliers would choose their capabilities from a poorly constructed list, listed in multiple categories regardless of their true capability. Our suppliers can select only their capabilities - meaning more effective and accurate search results for you.

  • Trade Shows provide personality- not searchability

    Trade shows offer a great opportunity to meet and greet suppliers. However, their marketing materials fill many a cluttered desk draw - making them all but useless for quick search, reference and comparison. Manufacturing Network is there when you need it.
