Wholesalers contract for Web-based catalogs
Cochrane Supply and Engineering (Madison Heights, Mich.), Illco Supply (Countryside, Ill.) and Sinclair Supply (Edmonton, Alberta, Canada) awarded contracts to Datacat, a provider of Web-based outsourced information solutions.
Datacat will provide these wholesale distribution companies with its HVACRCat subscription service, which is designed for wholesalers and contractors who want a Web-based catalog solution. The service allows a subscriber to access a database of product information by manufacturer, product name, subject, part number or any key word and instantly find the appropriate product information.
Various options allow the subscribing wholesaler's customers to create an order online and submit such an order electronically. Traditional print catalogs will be customized to meet the specific needs of online catalogs.
Cochrane Supply and Sinclair Supply will also receive Datacat's Catbuild software, a tool that enables the selection of products for inclusion in Web-based and print catalogs.
