VDC Announces Online ‘YouSpec’ ordering system for Video Cable
VDC Trading Limited, the London based company behind the prestigious Van Damme cable brand, has announced an additional feature to its online ordering system, designed for users of video and broadcast cable.
The online ‘YouSpec’ system, see http://www.vdctrading.com/youspec, has already proved to be a great success with the audio industry, allowing web visitors to design, specify, price-up and order completely bespoke cable solutions – 24 hours a day, every day. Now that service is also available for buyers of video cable assemblies from single cables to multicores.
Accessible from the desktop but is also designed to support mobile working via tablet computers, the site now features a separate ‘video’ gateway. Niall Holden, VDC’s CEO said “As with the audio cables, clients can now specify Van Damme video cable including the colour, the exact length, the connectors, the boots, the labelling and so on as required and we will manufacture their design and ship it directly to them.” He continued, “Or, the customer can save the design for review later as they spec out their next job”.
Whilst the customer has the ultimate flexibility across a range of parameters YouSpec will not allow dangerous designs to be developed. However, if customers get stuck for an idea, the Head Space section of the website offers details of VDC’s technical expertise and capabilities and also the outline of some of the great solutions that have been built for other customers. At present designs can be built around audio and video solutions. The application will be extended to cater for data, fibre, mains and hi-fi assemblies very soon.
VDC’s existing trade customers can also log-in and access their own account details and terms, purchase order history in addition to reviewing saved technical designs and solutions.
Overall, the VDC website offers industry professionals direct access to over 8,000 product lines. Each is supported by new product shots – not diagrams – to help customers choose exactly what they need, buy them quickly and securely and effectively click into the same great service from VDC in terms of turn-around times and delivery customers have always been used to.
Clients include blue chip corporations, production and broadcast companies, super-yacht builders and cruise-lines, government bodies, entertainment venues to PA hire companies and touring rock bands. The Van Damme range of elegant cable solutions has long been the professional’s choice.
