"Our approach is to provide all possible information to our customers so they can make informed manufacturing decisions," said Anthony Padalino, Global Market Analyst, DME. "PARTsolutions has been instrumental in helping us achieve that."
Today DME is further investing in PARTsolutions' 3D part catalog technology by embedding a configurator directly into its website, making CAD a more intuitive part of its customers' product selection and design processes. Seamless integration with the company's website, single sign-on (SSO) and corporate identity (CI) will make the process even simpler and faster for DME customers.
Additional enhancements include CAD-native, web-hosted catalogs, enabling delivery in any native CAD format to support the needs of more customers, and in turn, generate more qualified sales leads. Streamlined catalog management will allow for automatic updating of changes across CAD formats. DME will also be able to more effectively meet the needs of its worldwide customers through internationalization capabilities, as well as global support.
"From the very beginning, this effort has been completely customer driven," said Rob Zesch, president of PARTsolutions. "DME's focus on delivering what its customers need -- access to product CAD data without drawing it themselves -- is a value-added service that makes the company both a leader and an innovator."
DME first implemented PARTcatalog from PARTsolutions in 2001, in order to web enable its vast product line, which encompasses more than 66,000 items in 69 different 2D and 3D CAD and graphic formats. Today more than 80 percent of the company's standard products are featured in the online catalog and PARTsolutions' technology enables DME to easily maintain its library to support frequent CAD revisions.
