What is the Network

The Network is comprised of buyers and suppliers onboarded to the DeepStream platform. After signing up, you can explore companies on the platform, including those you've invited, suppliers invited by other buyers, or those who signed up independently. Utilise this Network by including suppliers in your Supplier Lists or inviting them to participate in your Requests.

How to Find Suppliers on the Network

To find suppliers on the Network, select the Network link in the navigation bar.

There are three ways to search for a supplier:

By Supplier's Name:

  1. Type the company name in the search bar.

  2. If it appears, the company is on the platform.

By Product & Services Tags:

If you're not looking for a specific company, filter suppliers through their Product & Services Tags. You can add as many filters as you would like to narrow your search.

  1. Click on the Network tab.

  2. Use the search bar to find a company.

  3. UNSPSC codes can be found in the ‘Products and services’ section on the suppliers profile.

Browsing Tags:

  1. Hover over any parent tag and click the open button to reveal its children.

  2. Continue opening parent tags until you reach the lowest-level tag (commodity).

  3. Use the "<" button to return to a higher level.

Searching Tags:

  1. Click the Edit button

  2. Enter a term in the search field (e.g., "cement") to see relevant results.

  3. Browse search results and open parent tags (as outlined in the above steps to see the child tags)

  4. Alternatively, search using a specific 8-digit UNSPSC code if known.

  5. To add these tags to your profile click the “+” button (you can select multiple options) and then click Save.

By Supply Location:

  1. Scroll down on the left to the ‘Supply Location’ section.

  2. Check the boxes next to the locations you're looking for.

    • Select ‘See more’ to expand the list

  3. Listed companies with that location tag will appear.

You can clear filters by deselecting all or selecting Clear for location filters.

✏️ Please Note: You can add multiple filters to narrow your search and identify new suppliers on the Network to diversify your supply chain.
