CDS Parametric Catalog and CAD Downloads implemented by Brother International Corporation
Catalog Data Solutions (CDS), a leading provider of online product selection tools for industrial suppliers and distributors, today announced that Brother International Corporation has implemented its CDS Catalog product for parametric product search and its CDS ModelServerproduct for CAD Downloads. The SaaS CDS Catalog frontends the CDS CAD ModelServer CAD download solution on the Brother website.
The products being promoted through the CDS solutions are Brother's Mini, Water Resistant Mini, Mid and F3 Series Gearmotors and Reducers designed in response to the industrial demand for smaller, lighter, more reliable, and energy efficient power transmission. "The industrial buying process has changed - designers now research and select products online, often before even talking to a supplier. Our website has become a frontline sales tool not only to enable customers to quickly find the ‘right’ product but also to help customers ‘design-in’ our products using the CAD downloads. This simplifies the process and saves customers time and money,” said Garett Dorman, National Operations Manager, Brother. ”Overall we’re delighted with the models CDS built for us, the ease of use of the parametric product search and CAD download experience for our customers as well as the flexibility, adaptability and support we receive from CDS.”
“We’re delighted to be working for Brother International Corp. As they well recognize, the convenience of the internet has changed the industrial buying process,” said John Major, CEO, Catalog Data Solutions. “Our CDS Catalog and CDS ModelServer are designed specifically for industrial suppliers to provide engineering spec. based search to their prospective customers and as a SaaS model it can be rapidly implemented.”
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.
