SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- KrellTech, a leader in the manufacturing and sales of fiber optic polishing and inspection equipment announced today that its newly launched website will feature an industry networking forum, the Photonic Solution Center. The official launch of the website and the Solution Center coincide with the company's participation as an exhibitor at Photonics West in San Francisco's Moscone Center, Feb. 5-7.
The Photonic Solution Center was designed with the needs of the photonics and optics industry in mind. It allows "members'" to post questions complete with application notes and drawings, look for hard-to-find products and seek advice from peers. Companies with products and services are listed as "Technology Partners" and can view and respond to inquiries, post product releases, whitepapers and videos.
The company's vice president of sales, Al Cheswick, believes that the Photonic Solution Center is a much needed tool to help users finds answers and products, as well as provides companies with the opportunity to respond to market needs for products and information. "We have a chance several times a year to meet at events, but the nature of the industry is such that many of the small-to-medium size companies with highly specialized and niche products don't have a strong marketing arm and potential customers don't know where to find them or the products they need," Cheswick said. "We believe this can be an invaluable tool for both, and a neutral, no-cost way to promote the industry," he added.
Phase one of the Solution Center is a very basic, post-a-question, get-an-answer format, but the company's intention is to make it a highly interactive mechanism, a combination marketplace-knowledgebase that is focused specifically on photonics and optics and their applications.
By clicking on the Photonics Solution Center link on the KrellTech homepage, new users will be prompted to register as either a member, technology partner or given the option to choose both. Ne w postings and answers are updated in real time and respondents can either answer privately via email or visible online. KrellTech is providing the service completely free of charge.
