Avnet Electronics Marketing Launches Enhanced BOM Upload Tool


Customers Gain Instant Visibility to More Than 3.5 Million Parts From Avnet Express

PHOENIX -- Avnet Express, part of Avnet Electronics Marketing - an operating group of Avnet, Inc. (NYSE: AVT), has launched an enhanced bill of materials (BOM) tool. The new BOM upload tool gives online customers the ability to search multiple parts simultaneously and retrieve instant pricing and stock availability information.

“Avnet’s BOM upload tool is the result of a collaborative effort with our customers,” said Beth Ely, senior vice president of Avnet Express. “The tool was built to provide easy access to the services and information customers find valuable on our Web site and allow them to save the links to that information for use after they leave the site.”

The BOM upload tool allows Avnet Electronic Marketing’s customers to convert a spreadsheet of desired part numbers into a working BOM, which can then be saved, exported back to a spreadsheet, or e-mailed to anyone else on their team - links and additional product information can also be saved to the datasheets.

In addition to generating a list of matching parts and providing pricing and availability, the search results also provide technical data and alternative part suggestions, and alerts users to special offers - resulting in easy access for customers to the more than 3.5 million products offered by Avnet Express.
