Global electronic components distributor, Digi-Key Corporation, has unveiled a range of new new website features and updates including a new Search Accelerator designed to make it faster and easier for customers to search for electronic components. This new feature kicks off a series of global website improvements designed to accelerate information access and simplify the ordering process.
“Our customers are telling us they want access to more parts, faster. And, we listened.” said Tony Harris, Digi-Key CMO. “At the same time, we solicited feedback from our internal Application Engineers to prioritise what matters most. As result, we”re pleased to announce this set of valuable website updates that will improve the entire online customer experience.”
Digi-Key used the results of a recent “Voice of the Engineer” research study to identify and prioritise the most valuable website features and upgrades. The website improvements announced are focused around advanced search capabilities including multi-attribute filters and easy-to-search product categories.
The Digi-Key Search Accelerator is a free downloadable browser extension that makes it easy to search for parts anywhere on any website. Customers can simply highlight the preferred text on a website and right click to view the context menu. Choosing the Digi-Key Search Accelerator option will display up to three top results, as well as product availability, product data, and pricing information.
Key features include: “At-a-glance” display of current pricing and availability; one-click to research or purchase a product from any web page; and multi-browser formats which support Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Chrome
With the new Search Accelerator, users can better refine their search and, as a result, find the products they want more quickly. The search data provides an at-a-glance view of all relevant information including detailed specifications, supporting resources, and product availability.
The Digi-Key Search Accelerator is available for Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Chrome browsers. It can be downloaded on the Digi-Key Browser Resources Page.
