Thief River Falls, Minn. (Manufacturing.net) — Digi-Key Corporation today announced that it has surpassed one million in-stock components for same-day shipping, and that they are all accessible via its new Bill of Materials (BOM) Manager. The company also rolled out a new Scheduled Shipments feature and other website improvements to help simplify the ordering process.
The BOM Manager is a web-based tool that helps electronic component purchasers create and save their BOM at all stages of product design. Users can quickly view inventory availability, regulatory compliance data and more, and once parts lists have been uploaded, they can immediately receive a quote for the BOM.
“As compared to other BOM Managers on the market, the Digi-Key tool is extremely popular because of our broad selection of parts available for immediate delivery,” said Dave Doherty, VP of Global Supplier and Product Operations. “It’s real-time access to a dynamic list of one million in-stock parts. This means that customers can instantly create their quotes online, make price comparisons, and place their order with the click of a button. Or, they can choose to save each BOM and share their product designs internally.”
The scheduled shipping feature allows users to break a line item into multiple shipments and/or choose to have each item ship separately and arrive on different dates. This can help reduce inventory cost and ease logistics when parts come in only when they’re needed.
