eCatalog Conference 2011 – a resounding success

Review of 3rd eCatalog Conference

ecatalogconferenceThe eCatalog Conference took place again March 16, 2011 for the third time. It was attended by over 80 participants from 5 countries, from the mechanical and electrical engineering sectors, and was a resounding success. Under the slogan “Marketing meets Engineering”, customers of the partners crossbase, KiM, Plan Software and TraceParts presented promotional solutions. The spotlight was focused on the experiences of users such as Julius Blum, Seeger Orbis, MiniTec and PIV Drives.


While the presentations were going on, the partner solutions were demonstrated live in an exhibition. This gave the participants the opportunity to see interesting functions live and speak to consultants. TraceParts presented the completely brand-new interface for the 3rd version of, which is already used by more than 1 million users worldwide.


Some of the features allow users now to save their favorites according to manufacturer catalogs, component families or article numbers directly in their “My TraceParts” account. This gives the manufacturers listed on TraceParts a further competitive edge in the early design process for both their existing customers and potential new customers.
