San Jose, CA, December 14, 2010 - Catalog Data Solutions (CDS), a leading provider of online solutions for industrial suppliers, today announced that The Kraissl Company ( www.Strainers.com) has selected its online catalog and CAD download solution.
Kraissl Co., based in Hackensack, NJ, is an industry leader in the manufacture of heavy duty simplex and duplex strainers, filters, transfer valves, and oil transfer pumps. “We recognize that the buying process has changed - customers now often research and select products online even before talking to a supplier so our new website will make it easy to find the right product and the matching downloadable CAD models. This should save engineers and designers time as they specify our products into their designs,” said Dick Michel, President, Kraissl Co. “We’ve had 2D CAD downloads on our website for many years but have wanted to upgrade the user experience and add 3D CAD models. With our website developer, Cole WebMarketing, we evaluated several vendors and ultimately chose the CDS Catalog and CDS ModelServer SaaS solution to be integrated with our new website.”
“In our evaluation we looked at catalog and CAD solutions that specifically address the needs of industrial suppliers. CDS really stood out technically and they are quick and easy to work with - we plan to recommend CDS to all our industrial customers,” said Brian Cole, President, Cole WebMarketing.
“We’re delighted to have been selected by Kraissl Co. and Cole WebMarketing,” said John Major, CEO Catalog Data Solutions. “As they recognize the industrial buying process has changed, designers now research and select products online, so suppliers’ online content needs to influence that research, be easily searchable and downloadable. 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.
