E•DRIVE Design Inc. is a West Hartford, CT based manufacturer of Precision Mechanical linear actuators. “Our product range is wide and diverse – adding CAD model downloads to our web site will save our customers time in selecting and including our products for their designs,” said Todd Pannone,[Senior Product Design Engineer], E•DRIVE Design. “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 E•DRIVE Design for our leading online CAD download solution”, said John Major, CEO Catalog Data Solutions, “3D models are increasingly a vital sales and marketing tool for industrial suppliers and distributors. With many customers moving from 2D to 3D CAD systems providing online 3D CAD model downloads saves customers time and often ‘locks’ products into a 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 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.
