CDS CAD Download Solution Success for Kurt® Workholding
San Jose, CA, July 10, 2014. CDS (Catalog Data Solutions), a leading provider of online solutions for industrial suppliers, today announced success details from its Ecreativeworks built Kurt Workholding website.
Minneapolis, Minnesota based Kurt Workholding manufactures vises and workholding products for clamping workpieces. “We added product CAD models to our website because the industrial buying process has changed. Industrial Designers, like the rest of us, now search online for what they need. Our product CAD models save designers time by enabling them to download models rather than building them from scratch! We’re delighted to note how appreciated they are, on average over 750 product CAD models are downloaded each month, nearly 17,000 in total already,” said Steve Kane, Global Sales and Marketing Manager, Kurt Workholding, Inc. “This enables our products to be ‘designed in’ to new customer CAD designs and then later purchased.”
“Our vendor evaluation looked at 3D CAD Solution providers that can meet the specific needs of Industrial Suppliers. CDS was right up-to-date technically and highly responsive to work with,” said Bret Olseth, President, Ecreativeworks. “We have formally partnered with CDS, and in projects that require this type of functionality we are delighted to recommend their CAD as a Service™ solution.”
“We’re delighted by Kurt Workholding’s success,” 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. Kurt Workholding has done just that, with CAD downloads that ensure their products both remain in contention and get designed in during the design process. 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.”
