This program will offer definite benefits to our customers...We offer highly customizable solutions that don’t force our customers to compromise when it comes to integrity.

Smith & Associates, an industry leader in the field of global electronics distribution, today introduces its PPV Plus+ program. With numerous resources supporting it and the backing of Smith’s rigorous SmithSecure quality initiative, this flexible cost savings program is one that is able to deliver considerable benefits to Smith’s customers.

Building upon all that Smith already offers customers, this program allows Smith representatives to work with them in flexible ways to deliver them the lowest price and greatest benefit while also guaranteeing them quality they can trust.

With Smith’s PPV Plus+ program, Smith representatives utilize open market inventory opportunities to help customers achieve cost savings through non-traditional sourcing pathways. The PPV Plus+ program takes the cost-saving efforts Smith traders already carry out and pushes them to the next level. Leading this project is tenured Smith representative Mike Pursley, who is utilizing his twenty-plus years of experience to craft a strategy that will yield results for customers. He and the expert team he has gathered will be working together to execute the program.

“The strength of our PPV Plus+ program lies in the fact that, while PPV programs are common, not everyone can offer customers what we can,” said Pursley. “We save our customers money with our cost savings program, but we also offer them the protection of our SmithSecure quality initiative, which emphasizes integrity in every aspect of our dealings. We help them get the low prices they’re looking for plus the rigorous quality and testing we’re known for. With our PPV Plus+ program, they don’t have to compromise. That’s what sets Smith apart from the industry’s other cost savings programs.”

Led by Pursley, Smith’s PPV Plus+ team will be expanding the program globally in the coming weeks, traveling to Smith’s worldwide network of offices to ensure the successful establishment of the PPV Plus+ program in each location.

“This program will offer definite benefits to our customers,” said Chief Trading Officer Marc Barnhill. “With this initiative, we can guarantee them adaptable service and all the quality benefits of the SmithSecure program. We offer highly customizable solutions that don’t force our customers to compromise when it comes to integrity.”
