CDS Catalog Faceted Search Solution Delivers ROI at Global Tooling in 3 Months

San Jose, CA, March 4, 2014. CDS (Catalog Data Solutions), a leading provider of 3D Catalog & eCommerce solutions that get industrial suppliers products found, designed-in, and purchased, today announced that its Catalog as a Service™ solution has been implemented by Global Tooling Solutions (GTS) and ROI achieved within 3 months.

Global Tooling Solutions, Inc. is a Walpole, MA supplier of machine tool accessories. “While validating that search engines were a destination for our target customers, we noticed prospects went to our website frequently searching for specific part numbers and downloading our entire PDF catalog. We decided to vastly improve the user experience by building a searchable online catalog and website with improved content and calls to action. Now the user has the ability to filter attributes to get to the part number of choice as opposed to skimming through an entire PDF catalog or, worse yet, paper catalog. Our decision to hire TopSpot and CDS resulted in a dramatically improved representation of Global Tooling Solutions’ offering and, after launching the site last November, I can say that it has already paid for itself in new business,” said Karl Ganshirt, President, GTS.

A comprehensive web design, hosting, and search engine marketing firm, TopSpot specializes in providing online marketing solutions to B2B industrial manufacturers. “TopSpot’s relationship with GTS began in May 2012 when GTS signed on for paid search management. We provided the validation Karl mentions above and together with CDS developed the new solution,” said Tim Doyle, VP Sales TopSpot Internet Marketing Solutions. “At TopSpot, we had already evaluated several vendors and chosen the CDS solution for a number of our clients.”

“We’re absolutely delighted with Global Tooling Solutions' business success and extremely rapid ROI,” said John Major, CEO CDS. “As product selection and buying continues to change and evolve, sales and marketing organizations need to continually come up with ways to get in front of the selection and buying cycle. GTS has done just that!”

CDS helps grow sales and strengthen customer loyalty for its clients through interactive online product catalogs, ecommerce, 3D CAD & BIM model delivery and product configurator solutions.
