Streamlining the online buying process

Mouser’s vice president of Americas’ service & sales, Coby Kleinjan, introduces Price and Availability Assistant, a tool designed to optimize component purchasing.

Whether a buyer is purchasing one component or filling a bill-of-materials featuring hundreds of parts, Mouser Electronics offers a portfolio of tools designed to support customers throughout the purchasing process.

Mouser’s Price and Availability Assistant is designed to help buyers check prices and availability on millions of semiconductors and electronic components. Customers can drag-and-drop, type in or copy-and-paste a parts list with desired quantities for pricing and availability results. Buyers can add up to 200 part numbers, with up to three different quantities per part number. The tool returns exact part matches for each line and offers replacement options for non-orderable part numbers.

The Price and Availability Tool can be found at Mouser’s Customer Resource Center, a hub containing tools customers can use to optimize the purchasing process.

Mouser’s vice president of Americas’ service & sales, Coby Kleinjan, said: “At Mouser, we are continually improving the tools we offer to help buyers and engineers manage their product specifications and purchasing. The Price and Availability Assistant is just one more way that our teams are providing best-in-class service to our customers.”

The Price and Availability Assistant is the latest addition to a full suite of productivity tools from Mouser, including the FORTE intelligent BOM tool, ECAD design resource solution and Inventory Management Tool, all accessible through the comprehensive Customer Resource Center.

From this site, customers can access and learn how to view or track orders, request technical support and data sheets or place orders via API or EDI through order automation. The hub helps customers get more information for parts and any other assistance they require for purchasing.

As an authorized distributor, Mouser Electronics is focused on the rapid introduction of new products and technologies, helping customers speed time-to-market. The world’s leading semiconductor and electronic component manufacturers count on Mouser to introduce their products into the global marketplace. Mouser’s customers can also buy with confidence, knowing they are buying 100 per cent certified, genuine products that are fully traceable from each manufacturer.

Kleinjan added: “At Mouser, we continually assess and improve our online resources to help buyers and engineers manage their product specifications and purchases. We strive to help customers streamline the buying process as we continue to make it our mission to provide best-in-class service to all of our customers.”
