Centennial, CO (PRWEB) November 12, 2008
PartMiner WorldWide Inc., the premier provider of real-time information and services to support strategic decisions in the electronics supply chain, today announced PowerBuyer, a market driven procurement tool for electronics manufacturers throughout Greater China.
The PowerBuyer solution provides electronic component buyers with market information including pricing and available inventories from thousands of distribution sources around the globe. Buyers are able to compare their current pricing to market prices in order to negotiate better pricing or select a more favorable supply source. Or buyers may identify substitute parts with better supply chain attributes and thus better pricing.
"PowerBuyer gives manufacturers a world view of supply which typically reveals price savings opportunities and a broader choice of inventory," explained Chris Meyer, CEO of PartMiner WorldWide. "Our persistent contact with supply sources around the world combined with our Internet-based information systems makes this revolutionary procurement tool possible."
