July 4, 2013 – EPTDA (European Power Transmission Distributors Association) says it has digitalized its communication tools and strategies in an effort to better serve its connected members. The EPTDA Blue Book, the association’s membership directory which also acts as a reference guide of the mechanical Power Transmission and Motion Control (PT/MC) industry, is now available on the corporate website and mobile devices. The new web-based Product Locator connects more than 210 distributor and manufacturer companies—all EPTDA certified members—in the PT/MC market, and features 16 main product categories, including: bearings, gears, chains, seals, hydraulics, electronic drives, and other key components. EPTDA’s upcoming 2013 Convention has also been digitalized—from registration to on-demand meetings at the event, EPTDA members and non-member delegates can keep tabs of their own agenda and priorities with the EPTDA Convention App. Registered delegates/members can connect personally with other attending companies, set up appointments, send instant messages, submit live feedback to the speakers, and more on their mobile devices.
