Update streamline purchasing collaboration

Digi-Key Electronics has added new features to its myLists tool, further streamlining collaboration between engineers and procurement professionals. The latest features let users share their BOMs to external team members or publicly. List owners can allow edit or view only access so everyone gets the information they need, without risking list integrity.


The list is updated in real-time so collaborators are assured they’re working from current information, which reduces communication gaps and errors. With revision management, assembly controls and approved alternates, teams can more accurately project the availability and cost of components, so projects stay on schedule.


This update streamlines the process between engineering and purchasing teams. Because these roles are at different stages of the value chain, information can often be lost. Now, myLists minimizes that loss by making collaboration between teams easier.


Digi-Key’s global head of marketing and e-commerce, Tim Carroll, said: “We continue to enhance the digital buying experience for customers to make it as seamless, effective and efficient as possible.”
