Its wide product range allows Goldhofer to cover virtually any transport requirement. Renowned worldwide, Goldhofer proves its solution competency by solving difficult problems involved in combined road, rail, maritime and air transports. Goldhofer is a specialist as far as general road, heavy goods and special transports are concerned.
On their premises in Memmingen, measuring approx. 100,000 m², some 650 employees build vehicles with loading capacities ranging from 25 to 10,000 tons. For many years Goldhofer has been using its own solution program for spare parts catalogs on CD and on paper. As the web portal would, in future, be requiring vehicle-specific catalogs the individual solution was to be replaced by modern standard software.
Following detailed evaluation of established systems, CATALOGcreator® came out on top. „The main reason being that CATALOGcreator® offers optimal output for all media: web, CD and print. Apart from a web portal, our customers still want a printed spare parts catalog as well. Also important to us was the fact that CATALOGcreator® uses vector graphics to link parts lists and drawings. Consequently, errors during automatic hotspotting are excluded. The modern appearance, the intuitive operation and extensive standard functionalities were also crucial. CATALOGcreator® gives us the opportunity to replace our meanwhile fairly outdated system by up-to-date software enabling us to offer our customers a future-focused solution“, says Horst Wetzel Head ofTechnical Documentation and project manager at Goldhofer AG. Planning of the 2nd stage involves integration of circuit diagrams from the electronic CAD system promis*e and extensions towards 3D-spare parts catalogs.
