CDS Catalog and CAD Download Solution Launched by UC Components

CDS (CDS Visual), a leading provider of online product catalog solutions for industrial suppliers, today announced that UC Components, Inc. has launched its SaaS Catalog and CAD download solution.

UC Components, Inc. is the world's premier manufacturer of vented and non-vented fasteners and baked o-rings for ultra-high vacuum applications (UHV). “The internet has changed industrial product sourcing – designers usually research products online before they even call potential suppliers. Our website now provides visitors with a simple to use online product catalog to easily find the right product and downloadable CAD models to quickly specify it into their designs”, said Rick Anderson, General Manager, UC Components, Inc. “We evaluated several vendors and chose the CDS Catalog and CDS ModelServer SaaS solution because it is well proven in the market, specifically designed for industrial suppliers, extremely user friendly for our customers and right up-to-date technically so very easy to integrate into our website. CDS really took the time to understand our business and they were also considerably less expensive than the competitors - the new solution is now integrated into our website.”

“We’re delighted to have the UC Components solution live,” 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. UC Components is now doing just that, via an online product catalog and CAD downloads that ensure their products both remain in contention and exploit advantages 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 to industrial suppliers.”

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.
