Online manufacturing destination leverages its industry expertise and vast network of connections to help deliver leads and sales for hardware and software suppliers.
Building off of its recent successful expansion into new online channels, CAD/CAM Connect announces its newly upgraded platform for connecting qualified CAD/CAM suppliers to interested buyers. The interface, which serves as an all-encompassing resource for the computer-aided design and manufacturing community, provides a wealth of information centered on CAD/CAM solutions.
In today’s world, it is commonplace for engineering and manufacturing companies to source CAD/CAM technology from a host of different resellers, or directly from suppliers. The industry landscape has seen substantial change with the advent of the internet and the evolving “shopping habits” of engineers, machinists, and IT professionals, who can almost exclusively research and buy necessary products online.
“We saw this trend and jumped on board quickly to serve the needs of the manufacturing community,” says Ken Wilson, CEO-Founder of CAD/CAM Connect. “We’re not a massive online directory, but rather a pool of consultants-advisors who understand this industry and the products and services that best fulfill a company’s needs. We’re unbiased since we don’t represent just one product or supplier. It’s about understanding a buyer’s needs and budget, and helping them make better decisions that will impact their business”.
CAD/CAM Connect’s website contains several categories based on product needs, covering all aspects of the design-to-manufacturing workflow process. Examples include (but are not limited to):
- CAD to CAM software
- Data management
- Enterprise Resource Planning
- Reverse engineering
- 3D printing
- CNC machines
- 3D part catalogs
- CAD training
- Large format printers and scanners
- Contract CAD help
- Job placement
One of many suppliers that has seen tremendous success with CAD/CAM Connect is NVision Inc., a company dedicated to providing top-quality reverse engineering products and services.
“Ken truly understands the business and is genuinely interested in helping the end user find the best solution for their job,” says Steve Kersen, CEO of NVision. “He knows what questions to ask and gathers the information we need before we make that first call.”Kersen elaborates, “He not only lists us on his website, but he goes above and beyond by posting our articles on his social channels and blog to help with our branding message and SEO efforts. The difference we have found between CAD/CAM Connect and other lead generating methods is that Ken combines his industry knowledge, connections, creative marketing efforts and passion for the industry into a total package that helps drive quality leads and our name to the masses that we could have never done alone.”
Through its high quality network, the valuable content it shares, and unbeatable industry expertise, CAD/CAM Connect aims to become the first resource engineers and machinists think of when they are ready to research products or suppliers online. “It’s about top-of-mind”, says Wilson. “We are consultants first, and an online resource second. It’s a win-win-win, all around. The end user saves time and validates their decision before they cut a check, the supplier makes a sale and establishes a relationship they may have never had, and we fulfill our mission of helping people make better decisions on their CAD/CAM business technology needs.”
