Verical Creates Toolbar for Browsing Its Components Catalog

Verical Inc., an online factory outlet for electronic components, has created the Verical toolbar. The Firebox Web browser extension allows users to search the company's catalog through a search box located within the browser bar. They can browse in-stock inventory and bargain prices without navigating to Verical's website. The new plug-in toolbar gives buyers, engineers and others an instant search tool to spot-check prices and availability. Other recently announced features for the Verical Marketplace include the Bid Button, a one-click icon which offers bargains on selected clearance inventory, and Demand Match, a bulk search tool which automatically matches open requirements with available supply. Upon adding the Verical Toolbar to the Firebox browser, users simply type in the part number they are looking for. They get a drop-down list of matching parts available at Verical. To expedite searches, the toolbar's auto-complete feature guides users as parts numbers are keyed in. Selecting a part from the list takes users to the Verical site, where they can research and purchase the part. Verical said it plans to introduce a similar toolbar for Internet Explorer and Google Chrome.
