CDS (Catalog Data Solutions) announced that Del-Tron Precision, Inc. has implemented the CDS CAD download solution on its website. Del-Tron Precision, Inc. based in Bethel, CT, has manufactured anti-friction linear bearings for over 30 years and offers one of the broadest product ranges in the industry. “The internet has changed industrial sourcing – designers typically research and select products online often before even talking to potential suppliers. Therefore our products have to be found online and our website needs to make it very easy to find and select the ‘right’ product. Once selected, viewing and downloading of 3D CAD models of the products saves time for designers and provides visual confirmation for buyers specifying our products”, said Emil Melvin, Director of Sales and Marketing at Del-Tron Precision. “We previously used a different CAD download supplier but switched to the CDS ModelServer SaaS solution because it offers an integrated solution within our website and hence a far simpler and better customer experience. CDS is also well proven in the market, right up-to-date technically and very responsive to our needs.” “We’re delighted to have launched the Del-Tron Precision CAD download solution,” 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. Del-Tron Precision are now doing just that by offering CAD downloads and ensuring 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. ball slide.
