San Jose, CA, October 5, 2011. Catalog Data Solutions (CDS), a leading provider of online solutions for industrial suppliers, today announced that Amphenol Industrial Operations (AIO) has selected to use its online parts catalog and CAD download solution.
Amphenol Industrial Operations (AIO), a division of Amphenol Corporation, is the leading manufacturer of cylindrical connectors in the world. “Industrial product selection and procurement has changed with the internet. Existing and potential customers now often research and select products online even before talking to any supplier. The right product for the customer’s current search must be intuitively easy to find and select online, then incorporate into their CAD design,” said Chris Van Soest, Director of Marketing, Amphenol Industrial Operations. “We selected the CDS SaaS solution for our ‘Amphenol Design Online’ system because it meets the needs of our engineering customers with a simple and intuitive user interface, industrial parametric search capability and excellent value for money. We look forward to our revised website going live with this SaaS solution later this year.”
“We’re delighted that CDS Catalog and CAD download solution has been selected by Amphenol Industrial Operations,” said John Major, CEO Catalog Data Solutions. “As Chris and his team recognize the industrial buying process has changed, designers now research and select products online. To ensure they are in contention, suppliers’ online content needs to influence that online research by being readily found and intuitively searchable using the industrial parameters of the designer and then downloadable for direct inclusion within a CAD model. Of the many types of online marketing content (e.g. white papers, case studies, brochures, videos, demos, recorded webinars, reviews, CAD model downloads, etc.) only one is known to lead to a sale nearly 50% of the time! CAD downloads may be the most efficient online marketing tool available.”
Catalog Data Solutions helps industrial suppliers and distributors grow sales and strengthen customer loyalty through interactive online catalogs, ecommerce, 3D CAD model delivery and product configurator solutions.
