“CDS is delighted to be providing this solution for KHK and their International customers,” said John Major, CEO CDS. “As KHK recognizes the industrial and building product sourcing process has changed, designers now research and select products online, so suppliers’ online content has to influence that research, be easily searchable and downloadable. 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.”
