Online PR News – 01-September-2011 – – Caterpillar and Mascus, two well-known names as far as the sales of the heavy machinery and equipment are concerned, are pleased to announce that their cooperation is going to continue for another year. Caterpillar and Mascus signed the agreement in October 2010 and used the online portal to connect potential clients to a wide range of the equipment for sale worldwide.
The prolongation of the agreement is the result of a successful six-month cooperation with Mascus. Since December 2010, Mascus has managed to have 175,000 online ads placed on their portal and about 3500 companies advertising from all around the world. More than 2 million unique visitors enter the site each month and the company has a presence in 39 countries worldwide.
The Sales Director, Rickard Petersson states that he is delighted with the cooperation between Caterpillar and Mascus and he thinks that the success of that endeavor shows just how important a truly global Internet portal is in that industry. “Our strong online presence and Caterpillar’s globally recognized brand is a powerful partnership that promotes international trade on an unprecedented scale. The benefit for both buyers and for Caterpillar dealers has been substantial and the continuation of the association between Mascus and Caterpillar is one that we both welcome.”, Petersson concludes.
Caterpillar – a renowned brand present online
Caterpillar has already strongly marked its presence online and acknowledges the crucial role of an Internet portal as the part of its marketing strategy. Caterpillar uses Catused.com as their main internal platform and at the same time a way to reach consumers. Combining that with Mascus, a marketing channel that reaches new markets, means that the users will be capable of accessing Cat used equipment inventory for sale all around the world. It’s also beneficial for CAT dealers around the globe as they will still have their inventory published on Mascus to reach the audience worldwide.
“We have been delighted with the response we’ve had as a result of our co-operation agreement with Mascus. The heightened profile it has provided means that our dealer network has improved their ability to connect with customers,” says Mike Young, Product Manager for CatUsed, Build&Quote Customer Support Services. “We’re committed to continuing our relationship with Mascus over the next 12 months, and are sure that it will produce an even stronger market presence for our dealers, and of course, greater opportunities for buyers looking for quality used Caterpillar equipment.”
Mascus – providing a global portal for CAT dealers
The prolongation of the agreement with Caterpillar confirms Mascus’ reputation of a trusted brand, which allows CAT dealers to reach a broader audience. Also, the fact that the Mascus portal is available in over 35 languages improves CAT dealers’ exposure to new markets around the world.
