RWM Casters Increases Sales Prospects With PARTsolutions 3D Part Catalog Technology

Leading Caster and Wheel Manufacturer Adds Embedded Configurator to Further Streamline CAD Design for Customers

MILFORD, OH--(Marketwire - September 8, 2010) -  PARTsolutions LLC, a global provider of 3D part catalogs for manufacturers and enterprises, and RWM, a leader in caster and wheel manufacturing, have extended their partnership. Already a PARTsolutions customer leveraging PARTcatalog™ to web-enable a significant portion of its wheel and caster product line, today RWM is investing further in PARTsolutions' 3D part catalog technology by embedding a configurator directly into its web pages in order to make interactive product configuration a more integral part of its customers' product selection and design processes.

"The sales team is taking advantage of the leads produced by the PARTcatalog technology, and have realized the value of them. The percentage of these downloads that provide us with an introduction to a new customer is incredible," said Justin Alspaugh, Engineering Supervisor, RWM. "Working with PARTsolutions to deliver 3D Part Catalog Technology continues to benefit our business and bottom line."

Eliminating the time-intensive process of creating, migrating and translating 3D catalog content has saved the company enormous resources, while streamlining the design process for its customers, and reducing the time to incorporate our products into their design. RWM first implemented PARTcatalog from PARTsolutions in 2009 in order to web enable its vast line of casters and wheels. Currently 30 percent of its product line is available in CAD, and that number will continue to grow.

"The addition of the embedded configurator further authenticates that RWM is a customer driven company," said Rob Zesch, president of PARTsolutions. "Its commitment to delivering the tools and technology its customers need to be more productive and successful is a value added service that solidifies its leadership position."
