SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 20, 2014) - CompareNetworks, Inc., a leading provider of media and platform products in web and mobile formats for the scientific and healthcare industries and the parent company of Biocompare, the world's most comprehensive and widely accessed life science marketplace, announced today that they have launched a partnership with Quartzy, a leader in online lab management. Through this partnership, Quartzy will utilize CompareNetworks' scrazzl developer application programming interface (API) to power research product discovery on their site. As a leading provider of lab management software, Quartzy is a source of highly qualified and valuable website traffic for life science and healthcare vendors who can now access this traffic by signing up to the scrazzl Syndication Network.
The scrazzl developer API is used by a growing network of partners in the science, technical and medical industry to power material search and discovery on their websites and applications. Over three million structured product records from the CompareNetworks site Biocompare are available for use through the scrazzl API, and there are plans to incorporate product data from other CompareNetworks verticals later this year. This growing network of partners delivers new sources of qualified traffic for vendors participating in the scrazzl Syndication Network.
"Quartzy is a free online lab management platform that was created to help labs save time and money. Helping lab managers manage their lab's inventory, quickly source products, and track order requests from their lab members are some of the biggest problems in the lab that we are trying to help alleviate," said Jayant Kulkarni, co-founder and CEO of Quartzy. "Partnering with CompareNetworks and being a part of the scrazzl Syndication Network is a perfect fit for us. We're now able to provide researchers with links to detailed product information and ordering pages directly from our inventory management and product catalog pages. These links will save our users time when trying to decide which product to purchase and help them place orders more efficiently."
"We are very excited to partner with Quartzy," said David Kavanagh, PhD, Managing Director of scrazzl. "Our goal is to form partnerships with great companies like Quartzy so that together we can help improve access to structured product information in order to improve the reproducibility of experimental science."
