San Jose, CA, March 11, 2008 - Catalog Data Solutions (CDS), a leading provider of online product selection tools for industrial suppliers and distributors, today announced that B&B Manufacturing has adopted its online digital catalog, CAD model download and eCommerce solution.
B&B Manufacturing, Inc., based in LaPorte, IN, manufactures and distributes power transmission as well as precision mechanical components. Responding to customer requests B&B Manufacturing selected the CDS catalog and CAD download solution for its website. “We frequently received requests from customers for fast and simple to use specification searching for parts, downloadable CAD models for the parts selected and convenient online ordering,” said Bob Hamilton, CEO, B&B Manufacturing Inc. “In a very short period of time we’ve been able to integrate CDS’s Catalog, eCommerce and 3D CAD download modules into our website, are saving design engineers valuable time in meeting their deadlines and are already seeing increased orders for our products.”
“We are delighted to have been selected by B&B Manufacturing for our leading online Catalog, eCommerce and CAD model download solution”, said John Major, CEO Catalog Data Solutions, “online specification search, supported by 3D CAD models and eCommerce are important sales and marketing tools 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 detailed specification search and 3D CAD 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.
