Engineers and designers looking to buy electrical and electronic components have a resource available they might not know about: SourceESB. It’s been used for over 30 years by savvy OEM and CEM buyers and engineers to source electronic components, products, and services. It give users easy access to thousands of component distributors, manufacturers, and service providers, including their local phone numbers, toll-free numbers, fax numbers, addresses, and e-mail and website addresses. The distributor listings and their authorization status are verified, so buyers and engineers can depend on them.
Here’s a look at just a few of its features:
• “Part Search” has a database of millions of parts from hundreds of distributors—check it out today. You can search for multiple parts at once and even check inventory levels and see how they vary over the year. This inventory checking lets you monitor inventory trends for specific parts. For example, your company may need a part on a regular basis. Using the inventory tools, you can see if inventories are going down for a vital part, so you might want to buy it early. On the other hand, if you see a part that is always stocked in inventory, you can hold off buying more until you absolutely need them.
• The list of authorized dealers and distributors even includes a webinar you can tune into to see how SourceESB verifies authorizations and what they mean.
• SourceESB offers the ability to create Part Lists that will help you save time finding and buying electronic components.
• Included is a Part Lists tool that lets you create, manage, and save several part lists for your convenience. Lists can consist of one or hundreds of parts and you can add and delete parts from lists at any time. You can also filter lists by distributors and send several RFQs simultaneously to several different distributors.
So give it try, and let us know what you think. You could end up saving time and money.
