Rino Mechanical Components Adopts CDS Solution

Catalog Data Solutions Adopted by Rino Mechanical Components

San Jose, CA, October 30, 2007. Catalog Data Solutions (CDS), a leading provider of online product selection tools for industrial suppliers and distributors, today announced that Rino Mechanical Components Inc. has adopted its CAD model download solution.

Rino Mechanical Components is a Freeport, New York based manufacturer and distributor, established in 1996. Responding to customer requests for CAD models of its products, Rino Mechanical Components decided to offer 3D CAD models for download from its web site. “We frequently got requests from customers for CAD models” said Dennis Berg, CEO, Rino Mechanical Components. “By adding 2D/3D CAD drawings on our website, we are meeting that need and are seeing an increase in the traffic to our website and our resulting sales.”

“We are delighted to have been selected by Rino Mechanical Components 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.
