Leading Canadian electrical distributor, Dixon Electric has launched its next generation electronic product catalogue for mining giant Vale Canada.
Designed by Dixon to meet the needs of their customers, the 383-page Vale e-product catalogue provides the most current and comprehensive coverage of electrical product and product-related information.
The e-catalogue offers the synchronisation of product data between mine personnel, engineering houses, project planners and Dixon Electric.
Kevin Bain, Manager, Dixon Electric explains that the catalogue will make it easier for experienced or new mine personnel to make more informed purchasing decisions, provide a leaner procurement process and quickly position all key product knowledge and specifications right at the fingertips of anyone who needs it.
The Vale-Dixon Electric Product Catalogue offers educational, safety and new product videos embedded into the pages. In addition to featuring active links to manufacturers’ and distributors’ social media sites, the catalogue can be shared, emailed and downloaded instantly.
The catalogue contains over 4,200 Vale approved products and can be loaded on to a PC from a CD or USB key. Once installed, the catalogue icon appears on the desktop, allowing any user access to the data quickly through a search enabled system by manufacturer, product number or product name. The electronic catalogue can also be viewed over the internet, offering a paperless way to reach large numbers of end users.
An extensive table of contents links instantly to the product category, and users can access thousands of detailed product images and specification illustrations with zoom capability as well as convenient links to related technical training videos and other support materials generated by Dixon Electric partners.
Rob Rozon, Sales Team Leader for Eaton Canada, which has partnered with Dixon Electric on this initiative, comments that the catalogue aligns Dixon Electric as a distributor with their suppliers in an innovative online solution geared to solving purchasing challenges for customers.
