Thomas’ Catalog Navigator Platform
Thomas’ Catalog Navigator Platform is a powerful database driven solution industrial companies leverage to increase sales, improve customer relationships, and expand into new markets - domestically and globally.
For industrial manufacturers to leverage the Catalog Navigator Platform, Thomas retrieves the manufacturer’s product information, in any format it is available, and works closely with them to accurately deﬁne all of the requirements and goals of a customized solution that achieves their goals. The process results in a centralized location for the manufacturer’s detailed product information leveraged for sales and marketing purposes.

- An e-catalog with detailed product search and configuration capabilities including keyword, part-number and parametric search as well as rules-based product configuration tools.
- 2D/3D WebCAD & BIM Publishing allowing engineers to generate, download, and insert 2D/3D CAD drawings from suppliers' websites into their own designs.
- E-Commerce and Online Merchandising including credit and purchase payment solutions.
- Interactive Exploded View Diagrams providing customers with an easy-to-use visual interface that allows them to identify, select, and purchase replacement parts.
- Product Data Syndication to distributors helping manufacturers publish their detailed product information within their distributors' websites and internal systems.
