In the course of my seemingly continuous supply chain research, I found this new search engine, RedZee.
Search engines don’t generally excite me. I mean, there’s Google and is there room for anyone else?
But this one has some neat features: a thumbnail of the site you’re about to visit, capability to search for MP3’s and videos, and, my favorite, a small banner that has scrollable, encyclopedia-like information about your search words before the site results.
For example, I did a search on “supply chain metrics” and the encylopedia portion gave some interesting, albeit non-supply chain specific, definitions and links related to metrics.
Can a search engine like this last or gain prominence? That’s debatable. But I’ll continue to check it out as it relates to doing supply chain research.
