ELECTRONICS: Mouser Electronics Inc. recently announced the introduction of a new virtual catalog. This advanced catalog will eclipse all other electronic component e-catalogs in features, capabilities, timeliness and speed.
For the first time, customers can browse, search, and buy products without ever leaving the e-catalog. Mouser’s e-catalog customers can see product availability, extended prices, detailed specifications, and alternative images - all while in the e-catalog application. The new catalog is available from the top right corner of the Mouser homepage and can also be accessed at www.mouser.com/enhanced_catalog.
One of the core design elements of Mouser’s e-catalog is the ability to swap easily between the e-catalog and the traditional Web site. Other features include:
View product availability and specifications without leaving the e-catalog
Order products directly from the e-catalog
Search catalog by keyword or part number
Browse product taxonomy in 11 languages
Browse suppliers by name
Page view history recalls last 20 catalog pages viewed
Customer assigned bookmarks for up to 100 pages
The website development team at Mouser spent months perfecting this integrated tool, to help customers easily navigate Mouser’s massive product catalog. Mouser’s e-catalog is the first to employ Microsoft Silverlight to fully integrate a paper catalog experience with rich internet content.
