SourceDogg Data Sheet Search to help suppliers get noticed and buyers get what they need

SourceDogg is launching new functionality enabling buyers to search 1,000s of product data sheets in seconds.

SourceDogg announced today it is releasing new Data Sheet Search functionality powered by Microsoft Azure later this year. SourceDogg is committed to giving suppliers greater exposure to a global audience. Data Sheet Search will allow buyers to quickly identify potential suppliers by searching for key phrases, names or codes in supplier data sheets, empowering suppliers to attract and engage with SourceDogg’s users. This exciting feature also enables buyers to search key product phrases or product codes from their SourceDogg account and retrieve relevant supplier data sheets in seconds, detailing product specifications. Data Sheet Search will allow buyers to save time identifying potential suppliers and help suppliers to connect with new customers. Buyers will be able to request these product data sheets from suppliers, and suppliers will also be able to notify buyers of their product data sheet updates.

Suppliers simply upload their product data sheets in bulk and instantly attract new buyers. Once the supplier has uploaded their data sheets they can notify buyers on the SourceDogg platform about their products. This gives suppliers a platform where they can easily get noticed and attract potential clients. Buyers will also benefit as they will be able to quickly identify potential new suppliers and receive updates on products and services provided by current suppliers.

Alan Phelan, CEO of SourceDogg describes how integrating Azure Search has helped SourceDogg with this new exciting functionality: “Being built on Microsoft Azure has helped us a lot with scalability; our system can take as many product data sheets as our suppliers would like to upload to our platform. Azure Search has allowed us to let buyer users easily search keywords and phrases that are within a PDF or image, making it easier for procurement teams to find and engage with new suppliers through SourceDogg.”

SourceDogg wanted to give suppliers a chance to engage with and get noticed by its buyer users, and Azure Search has enabled the company to achieve this. Azure Search’s Optical Character Recognition (OCR) has been especially useful, allowing users to search within image files and PDFs. SourceDogg allows suppliers to tag their data sheets upon upload, which, when combined with Azure’s Document Search, allows quick and relevant search results, helping to ensure buyers find the right suppliers to do business with. Microsoft Azure SQL Database and Azure Search services allow SourceDogg to provide fast, smart search and reporting features, and Azure’s scale enables it to more easily adjust infrastructure to meet the demands of customers and their schedules.

Suppliers need to register for a free SourceDogg account at to access Data Sheet Search. From there, they can upload their product data sheets in bulk and gain instant exposure to a wide range of potential customers. For buyers it couldn’t be simpler. Buyers just need to log in to their SourceDogg account to access this deep search functionality and easily identify new suppliers of products that are relevant to their company’s needs.
