New Hyde Park, NY — Designatronics, Inc., (www.designatronics.com) a leading manufacturer of small mechanical components, announced today the release of a new shipping module in its Stock Drive Products/Sterling Instrument (SDP/SI) online store.
The SDP/SI eStore catalogs and sells over 100,000 unique mechanical parts and also supports engineers with helpful tools, such as CAD and 3D drawings and diagrams to help them achieve their goals, on time and to their specifications.
The new shipping module uses real-time calculation from UPS servers, based on the weight and delivery location of the order. It gives SDP/SI eStore customers the ability to see and compare the cost of various shipping services prior to checkout, therefore making a more informed buying decision.
“Our customers have been asking and we’ve been listening,” said Jacques Lemire, P. Eng, Designatronics' Vice President of Sales and Marketing, “This is a huge achievement for Designatronics and an important first step in our digital marketing strategy to provide our customers with an innovative and effective online experience.”
The new shipping calculation module is the first in a series of major improvements for Designatronics' eCommerce operations, which includes the consolidation of its five brands' individual eStores into one eStore, enabling customers to purchase components from each brand in a single transaction.
Stock Drive Products (SDP) offers both inch and metric small off-the-shelf mechatronic components for the design engineer, and Sterling Instrument (SI) consistently provides high quality precision gears and gear assemblies in quantities for prototype to OEM's.
