Ready for price comparision sites to hit the electronic component distribution industry?
OEMsecrets.com – This site gives great value to anyone buying electronic components. Would you sign up to a website and pay to search for where to buy your car insurance? At the moment in the electronics industry this is actually the case. Many sites charge an annual fee to the users before they are able to use the site to search. OEMsecrets is changing the way the industry searches for components as there is no sign in process, giving the user instant free access to view all the major distributors inventory for free. Distributors like Digi-key, Farnell,Newark,Avnet,Arrow and many more are all listing inventory on the site, with more and more suppliers uploading inventory every day.
That’s not all though, users are now wanting more and more- not only do they want datasheets and images and other information to help at the design stages,but they also want to know which suppliers have stock what the lead times are and how they are packaged. OEMsecrets is going even futher than this, shortly we will release a new version which will allow users to compare prices from the major distributors by quantity, simply entering a quantity to display the cheapest suppliers for the quantities they require.
In some cases parts may be obsolete /EOL. To help with this we have added a new independent supplier section on the site. This part of the site enables users to look at quality non-franchised distriubtors real in-stock inventory. We screen the suppliers to make sure they really have the inventory on their shelves and we don’t list any inventory from China. With these checks in place we can drastically reduce the chance of purchasing any poor quality/counterfit items. Should the user want to see more information about a supplier there is a page in which they can look at the suppliers information for any accreditations, ISO approvals etc.
