Digital Parts Catalogs 101 : A Reference Guide for Manufacturing Executives, Marketers & Sales Teams

While this is technically correct, it’s pretty far off-the-mark from a functionality and value standpoint. Today’s digital parts catalogs are dynamic, powerful sales and marketing tools which place a manufacturer’s parts directly in the hands of their customers, not a just a paper catalog on your computer screen. Industrial Marketing: Digital Parts Catalogs 101 Digital parts catalogs are an essential resource for manufacturers and their customers. Modern catalogs contain critical product information, part numbers, data sheets, application info, related products, engineering drawings and 3D models in various CAD and imaging formats.
