CDS Product Sizing Tool Available on GAM Website

    San Jose, CA, November 25, 2014 -- CDS ( Catalog Data Solutions), a leading SaaS provider of online product solutions for industrial suppliers, announced the availability of a Product Sizing Tool purpose designed and integrated with CDS Catalog as a Service™ and CAD as a Service™ solutions already on the GAM Gear / GAM Enterprises’ website.

GAM, a leading manufacturer of precision gear reducers, servo couplings, and linear mounting kits, designed the tool to improve the user experience and provide simplicity of use. The sizing tool helps users quickly find suitable GAM products compatible with their motor.  Over 9,000 of the most popular servomotors on the market are available for selection.  After selecting a motor, users can easily narrow down the list of matching products by filtering attributes.  Once a product has been sized, users reach a personalized specification page with immediate access to everything they need for their design, including:

*     CAD models tailored to the specific motor available for download

*     Detailed product information

*     PDF versions of the catalog or individual catalog sections

*     Recommended complimentary products

*     Quick RFQ and online ordering options

Other notable highlights of the sizing tool give users the ability to adjust the continuous and peak torque values of the motor based on the actual performance requirements to ensure accurate sizing and a side-by-side product comparison function.

“We set out to develop a sizing tool that was simple and easy to use,” said Craig Van den Avont, President of GAM, “In the early stages of sizing most applications, our customers are looking for general guidance within our product offering.  As a user’s design progresses and the requirements are refined, our application engineers are there to help with more involved sizing calculations to ensure the product remains suitable for the application.”

“The GAM sizing tool is a CDS Catalog custom web app that seamlessly integrates into GAM’s existing website,” 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. GAM has done just that with this Sizing Tool.”

CDS helps industrial suppliers and distributors grow sales and strengthen customer loyalty through interactive online product catalogs, ecommerce, 3D CAD model delivery and product configurator solutions.
