San Jose, CA, August, 21, 2007 - Catalog Data Solutions (CDS), a leading provider of online product selection tools for industrial suppliers and distributors, today announced that Midwest Control Products Corp (MCP) has adopted its CAD model download solution.
Midwest Control Products has operations in Bushnell, Illinois and Hidalgo, and Oxon, United Kingdom. Responding to customer requests for CAD models of its products, Midwest Control Products decided to offer 3D CAD models for download from its web site. “We wanted to provide our customers with a CAD download service to save them design time,” said Mark Rauschert, President. “With the addition of 2D/3D CAD drawings to our website, we are meeting that need.”
“We are delighted to have been selected by Midwest Control Products for our leading online CAD model download solution and affordable CAD services,” said John Major, CEO Catalog Data Solutions. "By providing downloadable 3D CAD models of your products, you save design engineers valuable time and make it easier for your products to be selected over your competitors’ products. In return your parts are locked and loaded’ into new designs, so you will enjoy sales in proportion to the sales success of those designs. The first step is to get your part models online, the second to ensure they are easily found – both by specification/attribute-based catalog search on your web site and in design engineering portals. This is the best business-to-business (B2B) ecommerce lead generation available for industrial suppliers – the process reaches the true decision maker, the design engineer, ahead of the traditional buying process - and buyers rarely change what the engineer has specified.”
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.
