Flowtech is one of the UK's leading catalogue distributors of fluid power and industrial products. Established in 1982, the company has experienced consistent growth and now has established a network of 171 member distributors in the UK. The company's wide range of services includes technical support and assistance, telephone and web ordering, customer service, consolidation and delivery services. Flowtech offers products from some of the leading manufacturers to meet the individual requirements of its customers.
Previously Flowtech used the LinkUP! Quark XTension to help create their catalogues but with the demise of that product, coupled with an upgrade to Quark 9, they found themselves unable to create publications. Matrix CMS provides all the functionality of LinkUP! but with many added bonuses such as; a built-in product database, image database, proofing tool, job tracking and page mock-up ability. This will help speed up production by reducing errors and improve communications links between the design studio and product management.
Flowtech will also use Matrix's new translation functionality, which was recently developed to deal with Falk & Ross' numerous language and price versioned catalogues, to crate catalogues for the Benelux region.
