San Jose, CA, June 19, 2007 - Catalog Data Solutions (CDS), a leading provider of online product selection tools for industrial suppliers and distributors, today announced that Quality Transmission Components (QTC) is achieving rapidly growing 3D CAD model downloads.
QTC is a Garden City Park, New York, based operating division of Designatronics Incorporated, a company that began in 1960 as a manufacturer of small mechanical products. QTC is the leading supplier of power transmission components designed for use in industrial automation applications. Their product range includes the largest selection of off-the-shelf metric gears in the USA in addition to a large selection of timing belts, timing belt pulleys, tensioning devices and gearheads.
Responding to customer requests for CAD models of its products, the company decided to offer 3D CAD models of parts for download. “CAD model downloads from
http://www.qtcgears.com/ have been climbing steadily from 500 to 600 to 700 to 800/month recently so QTC seems to already be tracking to a ~10,000 downloads/year run rate in the first year,” said Brian Dengel, Product Manager for QTC. “We believe this will boost our online and offline sales as our products get locked’ into new designs.”
“We are delighted to have QTC as a customer and to see their rapid success with CAD downloads to their customers”, 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.
