CADENAS PARTsolutions Hits Record 73.9 Million Downloads of Manufacturer Content in 2012

Increased Traffic and Expanded Features Enable Manufacturers to Leverage 3D Product Configurators to Drive Sales and Build Brand Awareness

MILFORD, OH -- (Marketwire) -- 01/24/13 -- CADENAS PARTsolutions, a global provider of 3D parts catalogs and online CAD configurators for industrial manufacturers, announces record-setting stats for 2012. With more than 600 partnering component manufacturers supplying 3D data across over 50 online PARTcommunities, engineers downloaded more than 73.9 million digital parts in 2012. This represents a download volume increase of 22% over 2011. These downloads account for billions of dollars in sales revenue for industrial component parts configured through PARTsolutions technology.

CADENAS PARTsolutions currently has millions of registered engineers accessing data from 199 countries, downloading an average of 6.15 million CAD models per month, with peak months in excess of 7 million files downloaded.

"Millions of engineers and designers around the world are using our technology to simplify their design process. The proof is in the data," says Rob Zesch, President and COO of CADENAS PARTsolutions.

Average monthly downloads increased by 22% from 5.0 million per month in 2011 to 6.2 million per month in 2012. "The fact that we continue to grow is great news for our customers. Our goal is to place manufacturers' 3D CAD data in the hands of the engineers. Increased downloads create a win-win for both sides. More engineers are saving hours of design time, and up to 85% of the downloads result in a purchase for the manufacturer."

Contributing to growth in 2012 are expanded features and capabilities of the eCATALOGsolutions product offering, including a mobile app platform, Revit® BIM support, an upgraded browser viewer and new user registration and data capture capabilities.

Mobile Apps Platform
Using the CADENAS PARTsolutions mobile app platform, manufacturers of industrial components can now combine their digital product catalog, CAD models, data sheets, news, distributor locations and other essential sales info into a single app for both Apple's iOS and Google's Android powered devices.

"This marks the first mobile app offering designed specifically for industrial component manufacturers and adds a new dimension of accessibility for users," says Zesch. Mobile apps enable companies to demonstrate their commitment to cutting edge technology and give field sales reps and distributors a competitive edge.

Revit® BIM Model Support
CADENAS PARTsolutions now offers Revit® support enabling engineers and designers to access models in BIM format, which can be sourced and downloaded directly from the manufacturer. Additionally, by adding Revit® to their CAD selection options, industrial manufacturers can continue to ride the wave of BIM popularity and gain greater visibility with a larger audience.

PART2cad Direct Insert Feature
The PART2cad feature builds a bridge between the user's internet browser and CAD system to instantly open and insert a working model. This feature supports full native CAD functionality such as vendor and part numbers, mates and constraints, assembly relationships and more. Engineers can directly "test-fit" parts in their CAD system before they buy, ensuring the right fit the first time, resulting in increased purchase accuracy and customer satisfaction.

New Enhanced Viewer with Cross-Browser Support
A complete revamp of the PARTsolutions 3D CAD viewer marks the most beautiful interface and detailed viewing experience available on the web for configured 3D CAD models. The new viewer adds high resolution HD-like quality visualizations to manufacturers' embedded eCATALOG configurators. The new viewer also features expanded support for all major web browsers including Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Apple Safari. The viewer enables users to choose their preferred web browser without compromising visual quality, performance or functionality.

User Registration Module
Expanded user registration capabilities help manufacturers better monetize their CAD configurator and more accurately measure the ROI for their eCATALOG investment. For manufacturers looking to reach out to their customers & prospects downloading their models, a "required login" feature option is available. Capturing opt-in user registration data enables companies to keep engineers informed of product news as well as access to powerful customer data with marketing lead generation benefits.

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and sh...
What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...
Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...
