PartMiner WorldWide announced today that customer adaptation of PowerBuyer has resulted in a significant expansion of its component business in OEM and EMS customers in Asia, Europe and the United States. More than 100 companies are now actively using the online quoting and purchasing system to perform technical and market analysis of parts requirements and then actively execute purchase transactions.
“PowerBuyer is rapidly becoming a mainstream tool for buyers at electronics manufacturers of all sizes and all types throughout the world,” explained Chris Meyer, CEO of PartMiner WorldWide. “We are able to provide a broader supply market and deliver a very wide range of qualified quotations for most requests submitted through PowerBuyer.
