San Jose, CA, May 27, 2008. Catalog Data Solutions (CDS), a leading provider of online product selection tools for industrial suppliers and distributors, today announced that Tompkins Industries, Inc. has selected its CAD model download and Catalog solution.
Tompkins Industries, headquartered in Kansas, operates 10 distribution centers across the US and specializes in hydraulic adapters and fluid power products — offering the broadest range of adapters in the industry. Responding to customer requests for CAD models of its products, Tompkins Industries decided to offer 3D CAD models for download from its website. “We frequently get requests from customers for CAD models,” said Bill Hartman, National Sales Manager, Tompkins Industries. “By adding 2D/3D CAD drawings/models to our website, we are able to save design engineers valuable time in meeting their product design deadlines and as a result we expect to see an increase in the number of online sales leads and RFQs.”
“We are delighted to have been selected by Tompkins Industries for our leading online CAD model download and digital Catalog solution”, 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. Conversely suppliers without 3D models on their website are at risk of losing customers to their competition who do offer 3D models”.
Studies show that more than 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.
