International Gas Springs Adopts CDS Solution

Catalog Data Solutions Adopted by International Gas Springs

Results in Immediate Increase in Sales and New Customers

San Jose, CA, July 24 2007. Catalog Data Solutions (CDS), a leading provider of online product selection tools for industrial suppliers and distributors, today announced that International Gas Springs Inc. (IGS) has adopted its CAD model download solution.

IGS is based in Chicago, USA and Surrey, UK and is a leading manufacturer of Compression, Tension, Adjustable, Locking (Flexible & Rigid), Stainless Steel and Aluminum Springs. IGS decided to offer 3D CAD models for download from its web site. “We wanted to meet our customers’ requests for CAD downloads to save them design time,” said Brant Pelton, General Manager, IGS. “We researched the market and selected CDS for their leading online CAD model download solution and affordable CAD services. With the addition of 3D CAD downloads to our website we are delighted to have immediately seen an increase in sales and new customers.”

“We are delighted to have been selected by IGS”, said John Major, CEO Catalog Data Solutions. "By providing downloadable 3D CAD models of products, industrial suppliers save design engineers valuable time and make it easier for their products to be selected over competitors’ products. In return their parts are ‘locked and loaded’ into new designs, and enjoy sales in proportion to the sales success of those designs. The first step is to get downloadable part models online in multiple CAD formats, 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 spec’d.”

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.
