Caster and wheel manufacturer streamlines search process for medical products with expanded caster configurator
Colson Group USA, the world’s largest manufacturer of casters and wheels, has expanded the MedCaster online configurator, built by CADENAS PARTsolutions. By providing more product information and new search features, Colson is enhancing the user experience for engineers searching for casters to specify online.
“As the need for medical devices increases worldwide, MedCaster has played an instrumental role in meeting the demand for medical casters and CAD downloads,” Eric Gorte, Product Marketing Manager at Colson Group USA, said. “Previously, customers had to search through each of our configurators at the series level to find exactly what they needed. Now we have a dedicated landing page for each part, and customers can search by SKU number. It really gives customers a better experience by helping them find parts quickly and efficiently.”
Gorte added, “Our new smart filtering system makes the MedCaster catalog more accessible and easier to navigate. Instead of jumping between configurators at the series level, customers can use the smart filters to quickly narrow down their search. They can research down to individual SKU numbers and instantly find the product that meets their specific needs.”
The MedCaster caster configurator expansion also includes new images for each product and data sheets on every page:
“Customers can see detailed images of each product without returning to the configurator, this helps them to visually scan and select the product they need” Gorte said. “There’s also a data sheet on each page, so when customers search for parts, they can download with one click. This is great for engineers who need detailed PDF documentation or who handoff to the purchasing department.”
Cleaner, Quieter, Smoother, and Easier to Roll that is what defines the MedCaster product line. Developing products with both patient and operator satisfaction in mind, MedCaster remains focused on delivering quality mobility solutions for every medical application. If it moves in a hospital, we move it.
