The Catalog… What’s it all about?
A catalog is a collection or record of items that is organized systematically, normally in a certain order, and usually includes information about each item. It is common practice to arrange and show information in them, which can be either physical or digital. Some common types of include: Product, Library, Online, and Art catalogues.
Catalogs are useful because they help people find information quickly and efficiently. By organizing information in a structured way, they make it easy for people to browse and locate the items they are interested in.
The Director of Catalog Management at EquipWare, Randall Bates, was the guest on this interesting edition of “Geared For Planning,” podcast which was hosted by Michelle Dawn Mooney. They discussed The Catalog by EquipWare and what it is all about.
They had a conversation on:
1. The basics of catalogs and what it means.
2. How usable and accessible EquipWare’s Catalogs are
3. The group of people who these Catalogs are intended for and the solutions that they offer.
4. What sets EquipWare apart from other catalog companies.
According to Bates, our target market is our clients who are doing equipment planning. Catalogs make it easier because you can set up different variations, spaces, designs, and current information of various items and this makes it very accessible, instead of the planners writing equipment information on a spreadsheet that provides different lists and rows of information.
“Our Catalogs are user friendly, accessible and very easy to use with less clicks.”
