Today we would like to take the opportunity to take a closer look at one of our excellent programs set up to benefit OEMs, CEMs and OCMs. The program we want to examine a bit deeper is the Last Time Buy Program, which allows for the acquisition of an appropriate quantity of inventory to account for future years of production/service after the component manufacturer publishes the PDN or EOL.

Some advantages that this program provides to OEMs are:

  • Secures inventory for production and service for years to come
  • Prevents redesign saving time and money
  • Will store and distribute inventory as needed for up to 10 years
  • Ability to pay as you use, plus consumption monitoring
  • Guarantees cost of components over multiple years

Benefits for CEMs:

  • Enables continued productions/maintenance
  • Saves storage space w/ our certified warehousing infrastructure
  • Amortize costs for multiple years, defer payments up to 12 months
  • Favorable balance sheet treatment (supply agreement vs liability)
  • Keeps you from souring relationship with clients

How we can help OCMs:

  • Continuous exposure for your PDNs/PCNs
  • Access to OEMs/CEMs on numerous channels
  • Makes room in warehouse
  • Keeps your inventory liquid, improving delivery and service reputation
