San Jose, CA, October 14, 2014. CDS ( Catalog Data Solutions), a leading provider of online solutions for industrial suppliers, today announced that Buckeye Shapeform has implemented its Catalog as a Service™ and CAD as a service™ website solutions.
Buckeye Shapeform offers an extensive line of standard enclosures in both metal and plastic as well as the capability to modify or customize to fit the end users enclosure needs. Buckeye strategically targets and supports the audiovisual, aerospace, testing, telecommunication, and medical industries. “We added product CAD models to our website because the industrial buying process has changed. Industrial designers, like the rest of us, search online for what they need. Our product CAD models save designers time by enabling them to download models rather than building them from scratch and as a result our products get ‘designed in’ to new customer CAD designs ready for later purchase,” said Kenneth R. Tumblison, President, Buckeye Shapeform. “But for our models to get used they first have to be found online. We added CDS’s Catalog as a Service and switched to their integrated CAD as a Service software to add faceted search, improve Search Engine Optimization (SEO) in various ways, add product comparisons and improve our 3D models! CDS also implemented a special feature that alerts us by immediate emails whenever a product CAD model or spec sheet is downloaded.”
“We’re delighted to serve Buckeye Shapeform,” said John Major, CEO CDS. “As product selection and buying continues to change and evolve, sales and marketing organizations need to stay in front of the selection and buying process. Buckeye Shapeform are accomplishing exactly that with their new Catalog and integrated CAD downloads. 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.”
