CataParts is the first digital catalog that allows buyers to find and order parts directly from equipment drawings.

CataDisc™ (http://www.CataDisc.com), a provider of interactive, multimedia catalogs on digital media has released a new industry solution for companies selling aftermarket parts - CataParts.

The company said the new product builds on the foundation of CataDisc technology, with a digital catalog/parts list that allows customers to search exploded parts diagrams and/or a product catalog to find the part they need, click on the part and enter it into a shopping cart. The customer can then with "one click"* send an order or a request-for-quotation to the manufacturer or distributor for the parts they require.

CataParts provides manufacturers and distributors with the opportunity to significantly increase their aftermarket business. The CataParts catalog can not only promote the sale of aftermarket parts but can contain a search engine, zoomable parts drawings, specifications, instruction manuals, video and audio.

"Imagine putting all the necessary documentation for a piece of industrial equipment or a vehicle in one place that is totally searchable and shoppable and providing it to a customer when they purchase a piece of equipment. We've seen some companies that provide their customers with a duffle bag of "books" weighing 20 pounds with the specs, drawings, operating instructions and parts lists when they purchase a vehicle. CataParts can hold all of this information on a CD or a flash memory drive. This not only saves the manufacturer the cost of printing that 20 pounds of data, but it makes operating and servicing the vehicle so much easier for the buyer. It's a win-win for buyer and seller in terms of cost effectiveness, ease of use and productivity," said Tony Higgins, President of CataDisc.

CataParts also incorporates CataDisc's technology which provides 100% security for the buyer. All the information including the parts catalog, pricing and shopping cart* are embedded on the CD. The customer doesn't even need an Internet connection to use CataParts thereby providing total protection from privacy intrusion by "cookies". When the customer is ready to place an order, they can connect to the Internet with "one click"* and send the order encrypted for security or print the order with all personal data encrypted and encoded in a 2D bar code for faxing or mailing. The information is decrypted only when received by the vendor.

CataParts catalogs are built using the manufacturer's existing creative content from either their paper catalog or website, thereby leveraging monies already spent. Unlike other companies that sell CD catalog creation software to manufacturers who develop their own catalogs, CataDisc handles the entire catalog development and production, and can provide a turnkey solution including performing order fulfillment services. This can be a tremendous resource for those manufacturers without the in-house capability of developing their catalog.
