San Jose, CA, December 2, 2014. CDS ( Catalog Data Solutions), a leading provider of Industrial B2B eCommerce solutions that get industrial suppliers products found, designed-in, and purchased, today announced that its Catalog as a Service™ and CAD as a Service™ solutions have been implemented by Associated Spring Raymond in their new TopSpot designed website. In addition the new website was awarded a Business Marketing Association 2014 Award for Excellence recognizing Transformational B2B Websites.
Associated Spring RAYMOND is a world leader in the design, manufacture, and sale of highly engineered products & solutions including springs, struts, precision metal components, functional assemblies, and custom hardware solutions. “The industrial buying process has changed. Industrial designers and buyers, like the rest of us, now search online for what they need. We needed to first ensure that our products get found both by Search Engine Optimization (SEO) then by faceted search on our website. Second, we needed our products to be selected and specified or designed in before the third, purchase of the product, is likely. Our new website achieves all three – already over 23,000 product pages are indexed online, the catalog offers faceted search across all products, and the 3D CAD Model viewing and downloads enable our products to be designed in. The catalog is also integrated with our ERP system so pricing is available for e-Commerce,” said Adrian Vine, Global Manager, Marketing & E-Commerce. “We chose the CDS Catalog as a Service™ and CAD as a Service™ as the best industrial specific online Catalog and CAD download solution available and TopSpot as the best web design, hosting, and search engine marketing firm for B2B industrial manufacturers. Now our visitors have the ability to filter attributes to get to the part number of choice and the website is integrated with our ERP system.”
“TopSpot’s relationship with Associated Spring RAYMOND began in 2013. We worked together with CDS to develop the new solution,” said Tim Doyle, VP Sales and Marketing at TopSpot Internet Marketing Solutions. “At TopSpot, we had already evaluated several Catalog and CAD download vendors and chosen the CDS solution for many of our clients.”
“We’re absolutely delighted with the site and congratulate both TopSpot and Associated Spring RAYMOND on their award,” said John Major, CEO CDS. “As product selection and buying continues to change and evolve, sales and marketing organizations need to continually come up with ways to get in front of the selection and buying cycle. Associated Spring RAYMOND has done just that!”
CDS helps grow industrial B2B e-Commerce sales and strengthen customer loyalty for its clients through interactive online product catalogs, configurators, ecommerce, 3D CAD & BIM model solutions that drive SEO.
