Catalog Data Solutions Selected by Anvil International for Online Catalog and CAD Downloads

San Jose, CA, November 3, 2009. Catalog Data Solutions (CDS), a leading provider of online solutions for industrial suppliers, today announced that Anvil International has selected its Online Catalog and CAD Download solution to present its products with downloadable CAD models online.

Anvil International is the world's largest and most complete manufacturer of piping connections and support systems. “Adding a digitally searchable catalog and CAD Downloads to our web site will save our customers time in drawing and specifying our products,” said John Smayda, VP Marketing, Anvil International. “By reaching and helping design decision makers 24x7, we expect to see increased RFQs and orders.”

“We are delighted to have been selected by Anvil International for our leading online CAD model download and digital Catalog solution”, said John Major, CEO Catalog Data Solutions, “online 3D models are a key 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. Conversely 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.
