By initially web-enabling its general purpose low voltage motor product line including its EQPIII Premium Efficiency Series, Explosion Proof and EPACT Efficiency Series products, Toshiba is enabling its customers to quickly configure and download high quality product data in CAD-native format. By implementing PARTcatalog from PARTsolutions, Toshiba is saving valuable resources by eliminating the time-intensive process of creating, migrating and translating catalog content. PARTcatalog also increases Toshiba's ability to proactively deliver sales and support information to its customers.
"Supplying catalogs in paper format was no longer meeting the needs of our customers," said Jay Bugbee, Manager, Motor Business Unit of Toshiba. "Providing the CAD-native format our customers need not only saves them time and resources by simplifying a complicated process, it also keeps us at the forefront of technology in all aspects of our product and its delivery."
PARTsolutions will provide Toshiba products digitally in various online marketplaces, including the Autodesk® Manufacturing Supplier Content Center, Machine Design® Magazine CAD Library and various CAD Communities to increase awareness and sales of its products. To further broaden visibility of Toshiba products to new prospects worldwide, PARTsolutions will also make them available through its PARTenterprise solution, which serves major enterprise customers like Boeing, Airbus, Volkswagen, Audi and hundreds of others.
"In today's competitive business environment, more and more manufacturers are leveraging PARTsolutions' innovative technologies for 3D parts catalogs to increase sales," said Rob Zesch, President of PARTsolutions. "By leveraging PARTsolutions, Toshiba Motors is also taking customer service one step further by reducing the amount of CAD support needed and by automating their catalog."
