San Jose, CA, May 3, 2011. Catalog Data Solutions (CDS), a leading provider of online solutions for industrial suppliers, today announced that Newport Corp. has implemented its online CAD download solution.
Newport Corp. manufactures a vast array of advanced technology products and includes industry leading brands such as New Focus™, Oriel® Instruments, Richardson Gratings™ and Spectra-Physics®. “We have offered CAD model downloads from our website for several years. Our customers rely on the information to build into new design projects. In 2009, Newport acquired New Focus, adding a number of new high-performance products,” said Tom Miller, Director, Web Business Group, Newport. “New Focus had already been using the CDS ModelServer SaaS solution for over 5 years; while Newport used another vendor’s solution. Our team evaluated the alternatives and decided to standardize on the CDS solution. CDS’ technology, customer service, flexibility, adaptability, configurability and cost advantages all factored into that decision.”
“We’re delighted to have been selected by Newport Corp,” said John Major, CEO Catalog Data Solutions. “As they realize the buying process has changed – design engineers now research and select products online, often before even talking to a supplier. Consequently suppliers’ websites have become a key sales tool, not only to enable customers to quickly find the “right” product but, equally importantly, to offer CAD downloads of products to save engineers and designers time during the design-in process. 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 CAD downloads are 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.
