Yell.com and Thomasglobal.com have announced a collaboration to offer global industrial search results.
For the first time, Yell.com can now offer business-to-business search results from outside the UK. The agreement with New York-based Thomasglobal.com significantly expands Yell.com’s business-to-business search facility and reach, particularly for industrial classifications, which now extends to Europe, North and South America and Asia.
The development means that industrial and business service search results will now be offered to Yell.com users, when appropriate for their search, from a separate sidebar of Thomasglobal.com listings.
This trial option enables Yell.com users to refine their criteria for a more detailed search of Thomasglobal.com’s specialised industrial classifications.
Eddie Cheng, president of Yell.com, said: “Our collaboration with Thomasglobal.com is a significant development for us, both increasing the depth of our business-to business search facility available via Yell.com and extending it geographically from the UK to one that is truly worldwide.”
