Information on eFind.ru search system membership
eFind.ru is the most popular inventory search engine for electronic components in the Russian segment of the world wide web.
The company has been introduced to the market since 2002.
At the present time there are over 250 leading suppliers from Russia and other countries working with our platform.
Our statistics: 7000 unique visitors and 20000 part searches a day, half a million queries a month.
How the system works
When a visitor searches for some electronic component, our server sends requests to servers of our member companies.
The answers for these requests specify partnumber of required component, price, stock availability or supply possibility.
For example, our server sends a query «max323» to a vendor's server. This query is accepted by a special script that searches the internal database of the vendor
(MySQL database, Spreadsheet, Text file and other) and returns a list of items that matches to the query with availability information («Not in stock», «In stock», «100 item available» and so on)
and additional information, like manufacturer's name, price, description, link to the documentation and other.
