San Jose, CA, May 20, 2014 -- CDS ( Catalog Data Solutions), a leading provider of 3D Catalog & eCommerce solutions that get industrial suppliers products found, designed in, and purchased, today announced that Brother International Corporation continues to see growth in use of the CDS Catalog as a Service™ and CAD as a Service™ solutions integrated into its website.
"The industrial buying process has changed - designers now research and select products online, often before even talking to a supplier and our online CAD models views and downloads continue to grow. We see this trend accelerating - in the last year we have seen a 20% increase (over the previous year) in CAD model downloads of our Brother Mini, Water Resistant Mini, Mid and F3 Series Gearmotors and Reducers. Our website is a frontline sales tool not only to enable customers to quickly find the ‘right’ product but also to help customers ‘design in’ our products using the CAD downloads. This simplifies the process for everyone, saves customers time and notifies us of who is including our products in new designs,” said Garett Dorman, Business Development Manager – Atlantic Division, Brother. ”We and our customers are delighted with the CDS Catalog as a Service™ and CAD as a Service™ solutions.”
“As Brother International Corp. has recognized, the convenience of the internet has changed the industrial buying process and they have adapted successfully to that change,” said John Major, CEO, Catalog Data Solutions. “Our CDS Catalog as a Service™ and CAD as a Service™ solutions are designed specifically for industrial suppliers to provide sophisticated product search, CAD downloads, and a 3D viewer to their prospective customers.”
CDS serves Industrial Suppliers by providing them with 3D Catalog & eCommerce solutions that get their products found, designed in, and purchased.
