Not only does partnering with Avnet make your supply chain more efficient, you’ll get access to capabilities that you never could on your own. If you are like many solutions providers, you maintain large inventories of hardware in order to ensure timely response to future orders. You may also lack visibility into long-term availability of the hardware you depend on. That may lead you to maintain even larger inventory levels than would otherwise be necessary, to guard against non-availability of discontinued items.
These inefficiencies can lead to substantial capital investment in merchandise that sits idle in warehouses. Partnering with Avnet to improve your supply chain can minimize inventory on hand. Liberating those resources allows reinvestment into core operations, putting money back to work toward innovation that benefits the business as a whole.
Supply chain intelligence and agility
Long-standing relationships with global suppliers enable Avnet to offer you preferential access and pricing for the latest hardware technologies. Our visibility into technology roadmaps enables end-of-life planning for the products you depend on far in advance of when they will be discontinued. Avnet can make timely last-time buys of equipment and retain that stock in inventory as needed to help extend the duration of your product offerings. That longer availability helps maximize the return on your investment in product development.
Likewise, when unforeseen changes impact production forecasts, Avnet can respond smoothly. Our priority standing with top suppliers and robust logistics network allow you to meet demands without interruption. In fact, Avnet has the ability to provide custom solutions on timelines that are similar to those our competitors struggle to meet with standard off-the-shelf offerings.
