Cincinnati, OH – March 25, 2014 – CADENAS PARTsolutions has released the definitive resource on online parts catalogs. “Digital Parts Catalogs: 101 – Solutions for Industrial Manufacturers” is designed as an introduction and reference for industrial manufacturers looking to enhance their sales, marketing and customer service by utilizing an online parts catalog or product configurator.
Jay Hopper, COO and President of CADENAS PARTsolutions and author of Digital Parts Catalogs: 101, wrote the book to provide manufacturers with everything they need to make an educated decision when looking to provide customers with their digital parts online.
“There is a lot of information out there in the marketplace, and it can be difficult to find straight answers to common questions,” says Hopper. “So we decided to create a resource to answer those questions and put it online, for free.”
In addition to answering common questions, the book aims to help manufacturers get started with digital parts catalogs, said Hopper.
“We’re providing a framework and a checklist to work from using examples from some of the best in business”, says Hopper. “Digital parts catalog are still a new concept to many industrial manufacturers. We can help them make an educated decision by providing this quick reference guide.”
In addition to highlighting the “nuts and bolts” of a digital parts catalog and the value they can deliver for an organization, the book also features real-world examples of how businesses both large and small, are increasing sales revenue and improving the customer experience with their digital parts catalogs, online configuration and CAD downloads.
Hopper adds, “This book is not a bunch of concepts and theory, it’s filled with real-world case studies and business applications. We feature nine industrial manufacturers who discuss exactly how they have used online parts catalogs as the centerpiece of their sales and marketing plans. These companies are all very different, but have one thing in common; they have all seen success with their digital parts catalog.”
