This new site is already attracting an average of 2055 page views/day; it is regularly visited by Web-bots (pushing page views up to >6300/day) scrutinizing the content for search-engines so they will find content instantaneously in future.

NGS promotes the new page additions and updates via Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn and the NGS site’s blog, to the thousands of NGS followers. 


HOW DO PRODUCTS GET INCLUDED ON NGS WEBSITE?

NGS chooses products it wants on the website to help to achieve Healthy, Environmental, Appropriate, Effective, Resourceful, Competent, Construction.

It uses NGS Pre-PASS process to screen out other products.

Manufacturers or Suppliers of the preselected products pay for the time it takes to create and link the pages on the website.


NGS 6 CORE PAGES

NGS collects information and subdivides it into discrete parts and then links them all up:

You can see the links demonstrated:

go to any one of the current version of the 6 CORE PAGE templates in the list below

each includes a temporary demonstration of the linkages, 6 in each, in the right hand columns

Click "(Template)" to follow the links between the 6 CORE PAGE templates

In the real live pages the actual links will be product references, company names, etc.

The 6 CORE PAGE TEMPLATES include:

NEURAL NETWORKS

This website is planned and being built like a human brain, related pages link to each other so wherever a user lands on any page they can see every other page that contains related relevant information, listed and linked, so they are just one click away and can be interrogated without any further navigation or searching of lists.

NGS ENRICHMENT

In order for the NGS website users to understand the relevance and importance of any system, product or accessory or any of their properties or attributes NGS links the manufacturer’s PRODUCT and SYSTEM pages into parts of the NGS ENCYCLOPEDIA and visa versa, including:


Fig. 3 Neural network-like links connect all parts of the website to the NGS ENCYCLOPEDIA


DOCUMENT DOWNLOADS

There is no limit to the number and type of document added and linked to pages, but NGS tries to limit the content to those files appropriate to the scope of the page.

Files sizes have an upper limit of 2Mb and larger files are linked to on the manufacturer’s own website.

This first group are the only parts of the website that manufacturers pay for, NGS pays for the other linking and enrichment to make the user experience richer and fruitful.


NGS SERVICES on offer are comprehensive and aim to be joined up from the outset, manufacturers can be selective initially and can progress towards a more comprehensive and joined up set of parts in future.

Manufacturers information needs to be free to designers and specifiers to download so there is an inevitable charge to the manufacturer for these services but they are as low as we can keep them.

NGS has developed a service that is a combination of many small low cost elements whose prices are set and calculable, there is a calculator to download for you to add your shopping list to determine the total cost, add or subtract services to find a price that suits your budget.

NGS assumes the success of this services is based on the number of the documents downloaded; the specification being the most important document of all because it incorporates all of the important requirements of all the other documents and it ends up in the project contract and generates actual orders.

If you have a different criteria for judging success please let NGS know.

NO WEB PAGE ACTIVITY NO FEE

NGS is developing a service where the cost of the service is determined and agreed in advance, pages are created and the downloads are monitored, only when downloads are successfully occurring can NGS justify a fee, if they are not occurring NGS will work harder on the NGS LINKAGES & ENRICHMENTS until they are, and then the fee becomes payable.


See NGS Manufacturer Service Cost  (Excel Price Calculator) for your combination.

NGS is experimenting with providing a minimum service on credit (price determined and informed in advance) until it proves to be working (document downloads; 1 or 2 weeks is enough to know) once the services if proved then the manufacturer pays for the minimum service in full, and NGS shows the manufacturer what can be added to increase the likely document downloads which the manufacturer can choose to commission or not.

NGS is also going to experiment with half payment and remainder in installments, this will only be offered to Micro SMEs and not available to SME Small to Medium Enterprises.

The initial payment for setting up being set by NGS price and your scope, and this price is for one year.
Subsequently NGS is considering NGS will report on website statistics based on document downloads alone, and invite the manufacturer to pay what they think the service is worth to them (NGS assume the more downloads the better, the more its worth) if the service is not benefiting the manufacturer then the pages will be removed and no further money is exchanged or NGS work on further enrichment until the pages start generating downloads, and then a renewal fee is due.

It is in NGS's interest to optimise the manufacturer's pages to maximise downloads and NGS will.
