CDS Visual Parametric Catalog and CAD Downloads Selected by ControlAir

San Jose, CA, May 5, 2009. CDS Visual (CDS), a leading provider of online solutions for industrial suppliers, today announced that ControlAir Inc. has selected its CDS Catalog product for parametric product search and its CDS ModelServer product for CAD Downloads. The CDS Catalog will frontend the CDS CAD ModelServer CAD download solution and both will be integrated into the ControlAir website.

ControlAir Inc. is a leading worldwide manufacturer of precision pneumatic and electro pneumatic control products. “Our product range is wide and diverse – adding a digitally searchable catalog and CAD model downloads to our web site saves our customers time in selecting and including our products within their designs,” said Mark Levine, Director of Sales and Marketing at ControlAir Inc. “As a result we expect to see an increase in the number of online sales leads and RFQs.”

“We are delighted to have been selected by ControlAir for our leading online catalog and CAD download solution”, said John Major, CEO CDS Visual, “3D models are increasingly a vital sales and marketing tool for industrial suppliers and distributors. With many customers moving from 2D to 3D CAD systems providing online 3D CAD model downloads saves customers time and often ‘locks’ products into a design. Conversely suppliers without 3D models on their website are at risk of losing customers to their competition who do offer 3D models”.

Studies show that over 90% of designers and engineers now use the Internet to locate components for their new designs. CDS Visual helps industrial suppliers and distributors grow sales and strengthen customer loyalty through interactive online catalogs, ecommerce, 3D CAD model delivery and product configurator solutions.
