Taco Selects CDS for BIM Content Management Solution
Catalog Data Solutions (CDS), a leading provider of online product selection tools for industrial manufacturers and building product manufacturers, today announced that Taco, Inc. has selected the CDS CAD and BIM Content Management Solution, including its Revit BIM and multiple formats of CAD models.
This solution will bring additional capabilities and reach to Taco’s management of its growing library of detailed product information.
Taco is an industry leader in advanced hydronic systems for residential and commercial heating and cooling systems that are at the forefront of green and sustainable building projects. The company maintains an extensive library of Revit and 3D CAD product files.
“Taco is investing in the CDS’s Content Management Solution to maintain our market leadership position,” says Eugene Fina, Commercial Product Manager. “Once this solution goes live later this year, Taco will offer the best and most complete HVAC content to the design community. Adoption of our innovative hydronic technology is dependent upon architects and design engineers discovering our products, configuring them and downloading them directly into their BIM models as well as other 3D CAD platforms.”
“The CDS solution, coupled with our existing BIMX change Revit add-on, extends our reach and ensures that we can better manage and maintain a rapidly growing library of rich-data product information. The addition of the CDS tools guarantees our information is up-to-date and complete in the many destinations our customers expect to find us,” he added.
“The demand for current, accurate and detailed models and metadata from building product manufacturers continues to grow,” explained John Major, CEO, Catalog Data Solutions. “Whether its Revit files for BIM or manufacturing standard mechanical CAD files, users need a way to easily find and download just what they require in their design. To get specified and win bids in the highly competitive world of commercial building requires having the right data in all of the right places.”
“The CDS solution will help Taco manage this complex data and give designers and specifiers confidence they are working with the best and most accurate content wherever they find Taco’s products. By selecting the CDS Content Manager, along with our industry leading online Configurator and CAD Model Server, Taco will be at the forefront of both content management and online product selection technology. This significantly differentiates Taco from its competitors and puts their products at an advantage to get designed-in early, and stay in, through construction”.
CDS helps grow sales and strengthen customer loyalty for its clients through interactive online catalogs, ecommerce, 3D CAD & BIM model delivery and product Configurator solutions.
