GlobalSpec Recognized with 2004 Model of Excellence
GlobalSpec Becomes First Company Twice Honored by the InfoCommerce Group
TROY, NY – (BUSINESS WIRE) – 7/20/04 – For the second consecutive year, GlobalSpec, the leading specialized search engine and information resource for the engineering community has been recognized with the InfoCommerce Group’s Model of Excellence Award.
The only company ever to have received this award twice, GlobalSpec was honored for pioneering The Engineering Search Engine. GlobalSpec launched The Engineering Search Engine in March of this year, delivering The Engineering Web to engineers and technical buyers. The Engineering Web is a unique slice of the World Wide Web focusing solely on engineering-related information. GlobalSpec has added other unique features including access to the hidden Web – application notes, patents, materials properties and standards – exclusive content not available on any other search engine.
Russell Perkins, CEO, InfoCommerce Group said, "GlobalSpec has been a consistent innovator in the marketplace, first with its pioneering attempt to provide access to highly accurate and searchable product-level information which is redefining the traditional buying guide format. Now, with its new Engineering Search Engine, it’s beginning to redefine the search engine business as well, by rolling out a vertical market search engine that arguably offers its target market more power and performance than the well-known general search engines."
"Again, we are honored to be singled out by InfoCommerce as a Model of Excellence Award winner,” said Jeff Killeen, Chairman and CEO of GlobalSpec. “From our inception, GlobalSpec has focused on creating breakthrough applications to delight the engineering community. By doing so, we have amassed a registered user base of more than one million engineers and technical buyers. By creating value for engineers and technical buyers, we have created unparalleled value for our advertisers. It is our belief the next big thing on the Internet will be specialized vertical search – and the engineering community has told us that The Engineering Search Engine and The Engineering Web from GlobalSpec are exactly what they were looking for."
