Quick wins, Top 10 deltas

If you send us your BOM we can make comparisons between your pricing and demand patterns and that of your competitors. This allows us to produce a top 10 list of parts you are most likely to make savings on. This is a free service and there is no obligation to buy from us. All we ask for in return is the opportunity to send you offers from time to time that match your usage and can deliver significant cost savings to your company.

Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success
Henry Ford

We spend a great deal of our time in the field working with our clients on a wide variety of supply chain projects. As you will imagine it is amazing what we learn about manufacturing supply chains whilst visiting companies of all sizes in every corner of the world. If you have a project you would like some outside perspective on, give us a call.

Cross selling

There is a great deal of overlap in electronic manufacturing. Most components can be used in a huge variety of applications. For example, a chip used in the telecoms arena may be just as useful in an automotive application or vice versa. This creates an opportunity to cross sell between PCBA companies. We hold stock and usage data for hundreds of companies that allows us to see these matches and highlight cross selling opportunities. This may be useful to you if you are in either a surplus or shortage situation.
