Catalog Data Solutions Catalog Selected by KZ Valve

San Jose, CA, Sep 23, 2008, Catalog Data Solutions (CDS), a leading provider of online product selection tools for industrial suppliers and distributors, today announced that KZ Valve, an Ashland, Nebraska based supplier of motorized valves and actuators has selected the online CDS Catalog™ to present its products online.

“We wanted an easy to use online catalog with both graphical and attribute search as well as downloadable CAD models and ecommerce for our customers’ convenience 24X7. The objective is to save the customers’ time in selecting and ordering the right part,” said Keith Ziegenbein, CEO of KZ Valve. “We chose CDS for their CAD modeling and download expertise, graphical and attribute search of their catalog, ecommerce and lead management hosted by them but all integrated directly into our website.”

“In complex products, being able to easily search by attributes and/or graphics is essential for speed and the ability to download CAD models rather than drawing them yourself is a huge time-saver for design engineers,” said John Major, CEO of Catalog Data Solutions. “We are delighted that KZ Valve selected Catalog Data Solutions as this further endorses both our software and the momentum towards Software as a Service/on-demand delivery of mission critical applications.
