Ohio Nut & Bolt website traffic increases by 75% with 35% increase in sales lead generation
San Jose, CA, August 1, 2006. Catalog Data Solutions (CDS), a leading provider of online product selection tools for industrial suppliers and distributors, today announced that Ohio Nut & Bolt Company has adopted its CAD model download and ecommerce solutions, and is achieving website traffic increases of 75% and an increase in sales lead generation of 35%
Ohio Nut & Bolt Company, a subsidiary of Fastener’s Industries Inc., manufactures resistance weld fasteners, levelers and adjusting screws in inch and metric threads and in low carbon and stainless steel. They also offer custom variations on their standard line of product.
Responding to customer requests for CAD models of its products, Ohio Nut & Bolt decided to offer 3D CAD models of fasteners for download. “We feel that when a customer downloads a CAD drawing, they will purchase the product,” said Rich Bryda, Sales Manager, Ohio Nut & Bolt. “Providing online CAD has made us a faster company, the online information is readily available anytime an engineer wants to view the CAD drawings/models and when a specific product meets their needs, download it directly into their design. With the addition of 2D/3D CAD drawings to our website, we are meeting the needs of our entire customer base and will undoubtedly increase our sales.”
“We are delighted to have been selected by Ohio Nut & Bolt for our leading online CAD model download solution, lead tracking system and affordable CAD services”, said John Major, CEO Catalog Data Solutions, “online 3D models are an important sales and marketing tool for all industrial suppliers and distributors. With many customers moving from 2D to 3D CAD systems providing online 3D CAD model downloads often locks’ products into a design so suppliers later benefit from the sales success of that design. Suppliers without 3D models on their website are at risk of losing customers to their competition who do offer 3D models”.
Studies show that over 90% of designers and engineers now use the Internet to locate components for their new designs. 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.
