web2CAD TraceParts GmbH changes its name to TraceParts GmbH

Shorter for even greater efficiency.


web2cad logoAmberg, March 8, 2006 – Amberg-based company web2CAD TraceParts GmbH has announced that it is changing its name to TraceParts GmbH.


This name change culminates the migration progress initiated in September 2004 and stands as the foundation stone in the company’s long-term positioning as a service provider in the CAD industry.


CAD parts library

Combining the TraceParts and web2CAD powerPARTS catalogs gave rise in September 2004 to one of the leading CAD parts libraries in the engineering sector, with more than 190 manufacturers’ catalogs and 80 million CAD drawings. Today, TraceParts has over 600,000 online and CD CAD users around the world. TraceParts owes its high level of recognition among manufacturers and other CAD users to its free and extremely extensive parts libraries for all sectors of the industry. The CAD catalogs made available by TraceParts provide parts manufacturers with strong geographical presence in the markets and an additional distribution channel in the international arena.


TraceParts Enterprise

TraceParts Enterprise is primarily aimed at companies requiring a large, diversified and administrated range of parts in their everyday manufacturing process. The TraceParts user portals are customized exactly to meet the requirements of customers and are adapted to the existing IT environment. The portals contain an exact list of the purchased parts defined as needed by the user, thereby avoiding a confusion of parts and reducing the endless time spent searching. By restricting the parts to those authorized in the company, TraceParts Enterprise paves the way for effective parts management.


Software partner for PDM/ERP integration

With ever-increasing requirements, there is the need to use process-oriented, technical standards for exchanging product data. To help administer the CAD components and the associated product data, TraceParts supports integration in existing PDM/ERP environments. This means that all the relevant data are still available centrally. Manufacturing companies can then benefit from seamless, intelligent networked processes.

“Our customers know that the wide range of services offered by TraceParts has long gone beyond just providing a comprehensive international parts library and continues to do so. Very early on, they placed their trust in our expertise for their portfolios of Internet-based services. By changing our name, we are going to reinforce external communication focusing on our skills in e-catalog and CAD software and stake our position even more clearly as one of the leading solutions providers,” advises Heike Streng, TraceParts GmbH Sales & Marketing Manager.

Building on the recent appointment of Christian Baumgärtner as Director of TraceParts GmbH, the subsidiary of the French Trace Software Group underlines the strategic importance of German-speaking countries. In addition to extending one of the leading parts libraries, developing customer-oriented software and providing services and consulting are also part of the rapidly-expanding activities pursued by TraceParts GmbH. The company will be attending the 2006 Hannover Fair for the first time with a complete range of products and services.
