The Electronic Components Industry Association (ECIA) now offers its manufacturer members a “Distributor Stock Search” (DSS) widget to use in conjunction with the authorized electronic components inventory search site ECIAauthorized.com. When placed on the manufacturer’s website, the widget allows customers to easily find parts from authorized distributors.
“This new enhancement offers our manufacturer members a cost effective tool that streamlines the customer’s search for authorized inventory,” said Robin B. Gray, Jr., ECIA’s COO and General Counsel. “The widget links to ECIAauthorized.com which searches its database for the part then displays the results on the manufacturer’s website.”
ECIAauthorized.com is the only inventory search website that is owned and operated by an industry trade association and displays only authorized inventory. The search results are unbiased and random, giving no preference to any distributor. Customers do not have to register to use the site and all sales transactions are handled on the distributor’s website.
For a limited time, ECIA member manufacturers may acquire the widget at no charge, although nominal programming fees may apply. Anyone interested in learning more about the DSS should contact Robin Gray at 678-393-9990.
The Electronic Components Industry Association (ECIA) was formed in 2011 by uniting the National Electronic Distributors Association (NEDA) and the Electronic Components Association (ECA). ECIA members are involved in the development of industry guidelines, EIA technical standards and unique component market statistics reports. The association is a steadfast advocate for the authorized sale of electronic components and operates an exclusive inventory search site for authorized product: www.eciaauthorized.com. ECIA unites all segments of the electronic components industry in these efforts: manufacturers, authorized distributors and manufacturers representatives.
