A brand-new software productivity tool called DistiStock, designed to simplify the process of sourcing and purchasing electronic components has been rolled out by Toronto-based Smart Data Works Ltd.

Licensed to the end-user on a subscription basis, DistiStock helps components’ buyers, purchasing agents, electronics engineers and other electronic components purchasing professionals retrieve up-to–the minute information about in-stock, authorized inventory, prices, lead-times, RoHS status, MOQ’s and more. DistiStock retrieves the information from 66 major authorized electronic distributors in a single click. DistiStock includes distributors in 21 countries on 5 continents.

“What sets DistiStock apart is that the information is retrieved in real time. In other words, the information you see represent the real picture at the very moment that the user searches for it, not information stored in a database that at best is last night’s news, or at worst, completely outdated,” says Gunter Richter, a senior developer of DistiStock.

DistiStock enables users’ desktops to communicate with the authorized distributors directly, efficiently and in real time. For users, this means that DistiStock’s information can be counted on; the parts are authentic, the quantities are real, the prices are current, and the manufacturers are the actual manufacturers on your AVL, according to Richter.

“There is no need to worry about phantom stock, budget overruns or counterfeit parts,” he adds.

By facilitating quick access to up-to-the-minute authorized inventory information from major distributors of electronic components around the world, DistiStock helps alleviate the most common supply-chain bottle-necks, as well as addressing concerns about counterfeit and substandard electronic components” reported Gunter Richter, a senior developer of DistiStock.

DistiStock delivers the most recent stock levels and price breaks, as well as MOQ’s, factory lead-times, RoHS status and alternative parts. Special alerts about obsolescence, anticipated ship dates, factory allocation, NRND, Off-shore inventory and NCNR are also supplied.
