If you are searching for space technology or services from a provider you can trust, or if you are a supplier looking for a way to demonstrate your capacity, commitment and credibility in an ever-changing industry, then the satsearch Verified Supplier Program could be just what you need.
Ensuring trust, quality and consistency is vital in the space industry. As the sector grows, diversifies and democratizes, it is important that upstream clients can find and access credible supplier businesses that meet their needs.
In addition, with space startup and spinout activity growing, and cutting-edge products reaching the market from new providers on a regular basis, it can be difficult for a supplier to demonstrate the credibility needed to build commercial success.
The satsearch Verified Supplier Program is designed to help companies achieve these aims. We’ve worked with our valued partners to develop new features on our platform to help businesses demonstrate a commitment to support & leverage our global marketplace for space technology.
Identifying Verified Suppliers
There are two ways to determine if a satsearch-listed business has joined the Verified Supplier Program; through identification on the company’s supplier page (check out our global supplier network through our supplier map) and on individual product listings in search results.
What Verified Suppliers offer
Suppliers on the satsearch platform that achieve verified status have been personally validated by our team. Recognition as part of the program means that a supplier has committed to providing the following benefits to satsearch users:
A single point of contact: commercial success in the space industry relies on open and transparent communication. Verified Suppliers recognise this and have committed to providing a dedicated, consistent single point of contact for Requests for Information (RFI) through the satsearch platform.
Up-to-date information: we strive to ensure that all product and supplier information listed on the satsearch platform is current. However, this is a fast-moving industry with many companies seeking to attract new business while retaining advantage, and product and company information can change rapidly. Verified Suppliers have committed to keeping their product and supplier information up-to-date on the satsearch platform, so that our users can access the latest information on space products & services.
Positive engagement: as our community and the wider industry grows, we have an excellent opportunity to shape the processes and concepts that will drive the adoption of new space technology around the world. Verified Suppliers have made a recognised commitment to engaging in new satsearch initiatives and projects designed to grow the global marketplace.
Impact on product search results
Our aim is to provide the satsearch community with the most relevant product and supplier information to meet their needs. To achieve this goal we have ensured that inclusion in the Verified Supplier Program has no impact on the quality of search results presented to satsearch users.
The most relevant products will still be presented, ranked and ordered to give users the best possible results, and there are no changes to product hierarchies. The only difference between the display of products from verified and un-verified suppliers are minor design changes.
