CDS International Online Product Catalog with CAD Downloads Launched by DADCO

US Manufacturers Increasingly Using Websites Internationally

San Jose, CA, March 14, 2014. CDS (Catalog Data Solutions), a leading provider of online product catalog solutions for industrial suppliers, today announced that DADCO, an existing user of CDS SaaS online product Catalog and CAD download solution, has expanded that solution to cover German and Spanish languages.

DADCO, based in Plymouth, MI is a leading manufacturer of nitrogen gas spring technology, offering a complete line of nitrogen gas springs and accessories. “The internet has changed industrial sourcing – designers often research and select products online; therefore our products have to be found online and our website needs to make it very easy to find and select the product a visitor needs from the more than 1600 product part numbers we have! In addition, downloadable CAD models of the products provide flexibility for designers and visual confirmation for buyers specifying our products”, said Shirley Murawski, Marketing Manager, DADCO. “We used to have an FTP site for CAD models but it wasn’t very customer friendly so we researched several vendors and chose the CDS Catalog and ModelServer SaaS solutions because they were the most industry specific for us, are extremely easy to use, well proven in the market and right up-to-date technically. The new solution received a very positive reaction from our US customers so we are expanding into other languages to support our international markets.”

“We’re delighted to have extended the DADCO SaaS online product catalog solution by adding multiple language versions,” said John Major, CEO CDS. “As product selection and buying continues to change and evolve worldwide, increasingly US manufacturers are looking for international as well as domestic sales. Sales and marketing organizations need to continually come up with ways to get in front of the selection and buying cycle. DADCO is now doing just that not just in the US but worldwide, via an online product catalog and CAD downloads that ensure their products both remain in contention and exploit a new advantage made possible by the new process. The downloadable CAD models of the products save designers and buyers time and enable the products to be designed in easily and quickly. Of the many types of online marketing content (e.g. white papers, case studies, brochures, videos, demos, recorded webinars, reviews, CAD model downloads, etc.) only one is known to lead to a sale nearly 50% of the time! CAD downloads may be the most efficient online marketing tool available.”

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.
