New Thomas Industrial Network Group to help manufacturers distribute product data
February 22, 2012 -- Thomas Industrial Network has launched an Enterprise Solutions Group intended to boost the company’s business information and custom publishing revenue stream by helping manufacturer customers centralize, standardize and share vast stores of product knowledge data.
The new solutions group will sell itself to customers by offering efficiencies in finding product info and widely disseminating it. Another selling point is that the new solutions group features Thomas Industrial Network’s WebCAD Publishing and Product Configurator technologies. This new solutions group will benefit engineers as well by providing exact data from manufacturers which should result in faster decision making.
"In today's industrial marketplace, the companies that enjoy the greatest competitive advantage are those that can harness their product data and make it universally available,” says Eileen Markowitz, president of Thomas Industrial Network, in a press release. “For industrial businesses whose information is dispersed everywhere, this remains a major struggle. We're pleased to offer new technology solutions to solve this problem and to give even the largest companies more opportunities to grow."
Thomas Publishing Company, the parent of Thomas Industrial Network, has evolved from an industrial trade print publisher into an information and technology business that connects buyers and suppliers across all industrial sectors.
