CDS CATALOG AND CAD SOLUTION LAUNCHED BY MINCO PRODUCTS, INC.

“We’re delighted to have implemented this solution for Minco,” said John Major, CEO Catalog Data Solutions. Minco recognizes that the industrial product sourcing process has changed, with designers and specifiers researching and selecting products online. Minco also understands that their online content has to influence the online research and selection process, by having rich content that is easily searched using modern search methodologies. Like many suppliers today Minco wanted a cloud catalog solution supported by professional services, thereby minimizing the drain on their internal engineering resources. While searching for cloud catalog vendors, they quickly learned that the CDS Cloud Catalog solution was the only cloud catalog on the market that could render each catalog landing page under their main website domain of http://www.minco.com/. This patented technology greatly improves SEO performance by adding a new web page for each SKU in their online catalog, all under the Minco domain!”

AVATAR was brought in by Minco to help integrate AVATAR’s LinkCommerce platform to connect CDS’ catalog to Minco’s ERP. This new solution allowed Minco to realize their vision for MincoComponents.com, keep pricing and inventory up to date easily, manage orders, and communicate seamlessly between external marketing systems and internal management systems. The solution AVATAR designed gives Minco’s customers a comprehensive and convenient resource to order from the entire Minco catalog. AVATAR envisioned a clean, attractive, and simplified process for customers to move through the ordering process, maximize the retail experience, all while being mobile friendly. This site includes a full customer experience, allowing visitors to register for an account and order, pay, and monitor their orders all directly from MincoComponents.com.
