BUSlibrary: Worldwide Bus and Coach Link Directory

OEMlibrary, a web service start-up based in Belgium, is launching what is says is the world’s first human edited, worldwide link directory covering buses and coaches, suppliers and operators. The platform, called BUSlibrary, offers free access to unique search opportunities for company profiles, product range, latest news, and contact details of component suppliers, bus builders, and bus operators in all parts of the world.

Just in time for the Busworld trade show in Kortrijk, Belgium, the OEMlibrary is launching its first web service, www.buslibrary.world. The BUSlibrary is a worldwide link directory including publicly available web based information on 350 bus and coach manufacturers and body builders, more than 1 000 component suppliers as well as 20 000 bus operators.

Hub Olieslagers, founder of OEMlibrary, explains the main advantages of the BUSlibrary against conventional search engines: “At BUSlibrary we use our unique marketing information system to organise the web in a link directory, saving you hours of surfing the web.”

Unlike common search engines, BUSlibrary does not just use algorithms but works as a human edited link directory. Therefore, the user not only receives a link to the website of the company they searched for, but can access all web based information about the company like product range, latest news, About us, News feed, LinkedIn contacts, Wikipedia company history, YouTube product videos and even Google financial information – all at once, all in one place, without advertisements. Once registered, visitors to the BUSlibrary have free access to the company profiles and press releases, with the option to subscribe to additional paid services.

“BUSlibrary offers a unique web experience by showing all relevant information on buses and coaches worldwide on one single platform making your search faster, easier and much more efficient”, says Olieslagers. “This is possible because the BUSlibrary is based on human edited content, with our multi language staff constantly adding and updating news and links to the Library.”

Typical search features include search by product categories, by breaking news topics, search for new products or search for exhibitors of a certain trade show. When searching by product category, users can choose between three different approaches: ‘How it works’ will link directly to Wikipedia product information while ‘Product news’ will list all news related to the product category selected. ‘Global map’ shows the product suppliers in a global map with access to the company profile showing location, product range, breaking news and links to the official company website, newsfeed, about us, company history, product videos, LinkedIn profiles of company staff and Google Finance stock market information.

The breaking news section of the BUSlibrary lists company press releases filtered, summarised and categorised by news topic with links to the source article and the company profile. Access to paid editorials with background information is available as an option. In the ‘New products’ search users will find new product press releases, product videos and editorials. By clicking on ‘Make trade show appointments’ users can chose from various trade shows and get access to exhibitor listings as well as LinkedIn profiles of the exhibitor’s management staff.

For suppliers and manufacturers looking for worldwide direct communications with their potential customers OEMlibrary offers top ranking and brand awareness services on their worldwide industry platform. “So far, we list more than 20 000 bus operators, allowing us to offer our clients customised mail services and sales lead systems worldwide,” says Olieslagers.

According to Olieslagers, BUSlibrary is the first of several similar web directories OEMlibrary will launch in the next months. “We are developing a worldwide, human edited industry link directory covering suppliers, manufacturers, distributors and fleet operators on engine driven vehicles, equipment and boats, including highway and off-highway vehicles,” he says.
