TurboSquid Unveils New Search Interface
(New Orleans, LA – July 27, 2009) – TurboSquid, the world's largest online marketplace for stock 3D models, is pleased to announce a new, streamlined search engine for customers. Since debuting at Siggraph 2000, TurboSquid.com has continued to evolve as the leading resource for stock 3D models and textures with nearly 250,000 products for sale. The redesigned search interface makes it easier than ever to browse the world’s largest and fastest growing catalog of professional 3D models and textures.
The new search design, based on extensive research and customer surveys, offers customers quick options to refine their search with the number of results immediately displayed. “A customer searching on ‘human’ gets 9,391 results, and can see immediately that 7,261 are compatible with 3ds Max and 7,393 are priced below $100,” says TurboSquid Director of Marketing Paul Teall. “The answers and next selections are displayed right on the page. Change the file format, the search terms, or anything else about the search, and the numbers update immediately.” Teall adds that early tests of the new system produced a healthy increase in the percentage of customers who found what they needed and made a purchase.
Other options include customizing the thumbnail size to suit the user’s visual preference, and the ability to make custom lists of compatible file formats for different kinds of projects.
The improved search interface, a direct response to user requests, joins recent improvements like 24/7 support and file conversion services. “TurboSquid offers the best selection, service and quality guarantee in our industry.” says Matt Wisdom, CEO of TurboSquid. “Our new search is a big leap forward. We’re excited to save our customers even more time and money with these advanced tools.”
