Powerful Tools to Increase Buyer Efficiency and Productivity

Thomas Account Dashboard

The new Thomas Account leverages powerful sourcing tools to create a more streamlined buyer experience. Here’s a quick overview of the features on Thomas Account:

Access Recent Search and Supplier Evaluation History

We’re all a little busy, so on your Thomas Account we’ve provided access to all of your recent searches and supplier evaluation history, so you can easily reference your past searches or recently viewed supplier profiles with a few clicks. We’ve even added featured suppliers to connect you with the most sought-after companies.

Quick Access to Your Saved Searches and Suppliers

With more than 500,000 North American supplier profiles on, our advanced filters identify the right supplier for your sourcing requirements. Save your search query with all filters applied, such as location, certifications, and ownership/diversity status so you can get back to sourcing quickly. You can also save individual supplier profiles for later review.

Create a Shortlist of Suppliers 

Shortlists are a great way to organize suppliers by objective. When identifying potential suppliers for a project, add them to a shortlist to have easy access to company information, a quick way to send a request for information, or to download their structured data into a CSV file to be used in your own procurement system.

Databased List of Request For Information (RFIs)

We keep track of all of your communication with suppliers in one convenient place. When you contact suppliers directly on our platform through a request for information, you’ll receive verification that your RFI has been delivered for peace of mind.

Archive of Downloaded White Papers and Supplier Summary Reports

We understand the effort that goes into your supplier research. We offer free supplier summary reports and in-depth, expertly-written white papers to help inform your buying experience. All downloaded documents are kept in your Thomas Account for reference.
