San Jose, CA, January 10, 2012. CDS ( Catalog Data Solutions), a leading provider of online product catalog solutions for industrial suppliers, today announced that Wink Fasteners, Inc. has selected its SaaS Catalog and CAD download solution.
Wink Fasteners, Inc. of Charles City, Virginia distributes corrosion resistant fasteners - bolts, nuts, washers, sockets, threaded rod, u bolts, and machine screws. “The internet has changed industrial sourcing – designers often research and select products online even before talking to potential suppliers. Therefore our website has to be found online and needs to provide visitors with an easy to use online product catalog. We believe the downloadable CAD model of the product will be a value add for engineers specifying our products”, said Janet Winkelman, President, Wink Fasteners, Inc. “We evaluated several vendors and chose the CDS Catalog and CDS ModelServer SaaS solutions because they are specifically designed for industrial suppliers, well proven in the market, right up-to-date technically and CDS is highly responsive to work with. This new solution is currently being configured for our products and will be integrated into our future website.”
“We’re delighted to have been selected by Wink Fasteners,” 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. Wink Fasteners are now doing just that, via an online product catalog and CAD downloads that ensure 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.
