San Jose, CA, December 6, 2011. Catalog Data Solutions (CDS), a leading provider of online SaaS (Software as a Service) solutions for industrial suppliers, today announced that White Drive Products have implemented CDS Configurator and CDS ModelServer to present and aid online configuration of products and CAD model downloads.
White Drive Products provides a complete range of products for mobile hydraulic drive applications. Products include a full range of low-speed high-torque motors, integrated motor brake combinations, stand alone spring-applied pressure release brakes, flow dividers, brake release hand pumps, and closed-loop hydrostatic drive piston pumps. “We want to enable our customers to easily configure a model number and download CAD models to simplify their design process,” said Fred Granson, Global Marketing and New Product Development Manager, White Drive Products Inc. “We evaluated several suppliers and ultimately selected CDS because they offer the best-in-class configurator user interface, which was customized to our specific requirements. CDS also provided complete data services including building downloadable CAD files, and the entire package delivered in a SaaS solution.”
“CDS is delighted to have implemented this SaaS solution for White Drive Products,” said John Major, CEO Catalog Data Solutions. “The industrial buying process has changed - designers now research and select products online before, or even instead of, talking to a salesperson. White Drive Products configurator (try it here) and online content now guides and influences that research. Of all 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 so 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 catalogs, ecommerce, 3D CAD & BIM model delivery and product configurator solutions.
