International Gas Spring Adopts CDS Solution

Catalog Data Solutions Adopted by International Gas Spring

San Jose, CA, February 13, 2007. Catalog Data Solutions (CDS), a leading provider of online product selection tools for industrial suppliers and distributors, today announced that International Gas Spring has adopted its CAD model download solution.

Chicago based International Gas Spring Inc. is a member of the IGS Group, founded in 1982 to manufacture high quality gas springs solutions.

Responding to customer requests for CAD models of its products, International Gas Spring decided to offer 3D CAD models for download from its web site. “We wanted to meet customer requests for a CAD download service to save them time and ease in product selection,” said Brant Pelton, GM, International Gas Spring. “With the addition of 2D/3D CAD drawings to our website, we are meeting that need for all the commonly used CAD programs and we anticipate an increase in customer satisfaction and sales as a result.”

“We are delighted to have been selected by International Gas Spring for our leading online CAD model download solution, lead tracking system and affordable CAD services”, 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. 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.
