CDS (Catalog Data Solutions), a leading provider of online Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions for industrial suppliers, today announced opening of a new US satellite office in Orem, UT to support accelerating growth. “As CDS continues to grow organically with existing and new customers we simply out-grew our San Jose office space. Opening the new Orem office has many advantages including lower costs and the ability to attract and hire engineering talent from local universities,” said John Major, CEO, CDS. “Project teams based at the new office will build online product catalogs, configurators and CAD downloads for industrial suppliers. CDS customers will only be advantageously affected by, for example, technical support now being a time zone closer to our Midwest and East Coast customers. All software development, sales and marketing functions will remain in our San Jose office.” Visit www.go-cds.com to download numerous manufacturer and distributor case studies illustrating that, as industrial product selection and sourcing moves online, leading industrial suppliers’ are evolving their sales and marketing in 3 steps:
