Smart Data Works Launches DistiStock Lite

Toronto, ON, March 18, 2013 — Smart Data Works has launched its DistiStock Lite application, the free version of its flagship application DistiStock Premium.
"DistiStock Lite is used by electronics industry professionals who need to research electronic components, for purchasing, sales or engineering purposes. It's a great tool for professionals who source electronic parts and components either on a regular basis or only intermittently," said Gunter Richter, senior developer of DistiStock.
Using DistiStock they can quickly retrieve and easily compare: current prices, availability, RoHS status, EOL alerts, NCNR alerts, obsolescence alerts, cross-references, MOQ, pipeline delivery dates, factory lead times, PDF datasheets, product images and more.
In the event of a shortage, users of the application can source parts from authorized sources that they had not considered before. They quickly gain view of the world's largest selection of electronic components available for immediate shipment. "When my production line is down because of one missing part, I can't wait, I need to find the part quickly no matter what; If I can locate it on the other side of the globe so be it; I'm gonna ship it overnight." said one purchasing manager at a mid-size CEM.
All versions of DistiStock utilize the proprietary AccuParts algorithm to find parts that exist in stock but, at times, can not be found through the conventional search available on a distributor's own website, due to internal data inconsistencies.
"I wish this tool had been available to me when I was doing contract work for the automotive industry," Richter added.
At the time of this writing, both DistiStock Lite and DistiStock Premium communicate directly and in Real-Time with 76 leading international authorized distributors. More authorized distributors are being added.
DistiStock makes it easy to access and assimilate a wide spectrum of data about electronic parts; be it electronic characteristics or world-wide availability or factory lead-times. The data is always retrieved and displayed in real-time, showing the most current information.  DistiStock also provides enhanced user experience through the use of a customizable, filterable and sortable spreadsheet for data presentation.
When you download DistiStock Lite for the first time, there is no difference between the Lite version and the Premium version, during an introductory period of time. During this introductory period, users can experience all the capabilities of the more powerful Premium version.
At the end of the introductory period, the full capabilities of the Premium version are automatically reverted to the capabilities of the Lite version, which are still quite impressive on their own. If you need to upgrade to the full capabilities, all you need to do is to purchase, online, the subscription that best suits your needs. An activation code will then be e-mailed to you. Applying it from inside the application enables the full capabilities.
