San Jose, CA, April 3, 2007 - Catalog Data Solutions (CDS), a leading provider of online product selection tools for industrial suppliers and distributors, today announced that Advanced Machine & Engineering has adopted its CAD model download solution.
Advanced Machine & Engineering Co. (AME) is a Rockford, Illinois based manufacturer and distributor, originally established in 1966. Responding to customer requests for CAD models of its products, Advanced Machine & Engineering decided to offer 3D CAD models for download from its web site. “We frequently get requests from customers for CAD models” said Tom Watson, Director of Global Marketing for Goellner, Inc., the parent company. “We believe that adding 2D/3D CAD drawings on our website, we are meeting that need and are expecting an increase in traffic to our website, and in sales as a result.”
“We are delighted to have been selected by Advanced Machine & Engineering 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.
