What is Kuagu?

Kuagu is an intelligent online portal created to take the guess work out of purchasing industrial products. Kuagu packages product data from vendors in a methodical way, then makes it easy for buyers to find what they are looking for, using AI-powered search technology. Kuagu is NOT an e-commerce website.


What can Kuagu do for me?

Kuagu searches for industrial products, components and parts using visual input documents such as image, drawing, and 3d model, as well as keywords. Search users have an option of downloading matched product data and their suppliers or submitting their purchase orders to matched vendors through Kuagu.


How do I pay for the orders I submit on Kuagu?

When you submit a purchase order on Kuagu, the order is forwarded to the vendor. You will receive a confirmation from the vendor and an instruction how to complete the purchase.


Why I am not finding the products I am looking for when I submit my own input document?

We are still adding products to our database. If you cannot find what you are looking for, it is most likely that we do not have that product in our database yet. Please let us know what products you are not finding, and we may be able to prioritize the product category based on customer requests.
