eCatalog Conference 2010: Integration of PIM, CAD data and configuration systems

St. Wendel, 05/03/2010: The "eCatalog Conference" was again held on March 3, 2010 by our partner KIM in St. Wendel. At this one-day event, crossbase and partners KIM, Plan Software and TraceParts presented solutions to boost sales. The event covered diverse aspects of product communication, from product and quotation configuration to the use of CAD parts catalogs and automated print catalog production.

Presentations from Hawe, FAG and item provided best practice examples from users and highlighted the benefits of the software solutions used. The range of information on offer was topped off with presentations from software providers Adobe, KIM, Plan Software and TraceParts. The participants benefited from the combined experience of software manufacturers and industrial users. The number of people attending also rose from 50 last year to 80 this year, clearly showing the relevance of and interest in these topics.

crossbase mediasolution GmbH had a stand at the conference to present the brand new Release 4 of the PIM and crossmedia solution to interested visitors – the main focuses were on integrating CAD data into the PIM system and configuration.

We hope to intensify the partnership between crossbase, KIM, TraceParts and Plan Software to allow us to better meet the needs of users. The aim is for product information, i.e. product features, multi-lingual texts and images, which are saved in the PIM system, to be made seamlessly available to CAD and configuration systems and to avoid duplicate maintenance work.

The pleasant atmosphere in the Golfhotel helped participants to quickly strike up a conversation. A survey of last year's event showed that more than 96% of those questioned were satisfied with how the event was run, the presentations and the fringe events. On the day itself, more than 64% of participants stated that the information provided will help them with future decisions.

The photos convey some impressions of the trade fair. You are warmly invited to join us again or for the first time next year.
