CalcuQuote Adds Venkel to EMS Quoting Platform


Reading time ( words)

CalcuQuote, a comprehensive request for quotation (RFQ) management system designed for the electronics manufacturing services (EMS) industry, is partnering with Austin-based Venkel Ltd, a supplier of PCB components, specializing in surface mount components, to provide a faster quoting experience for EMS companies.

The integration between Venkel's inventory Application Programming Interface (API) and CalcuQuote's quoting software application allows instant look up of component pricing and availability data at the click of a button.

"Venkel's emphasis on providing a reliable supply of SMT components overlaps perfectly with our customer base of high-mix, low-volume PCB Assembly companies," said Chintan Sutaria, president of CalcuQuote.

CalcuQuote customers who have a need for fast and accurate response to RFQs will be able to upload a Bill of Material (BOM) into CalcuQuote and begin the process of instantly searching through Venkel’s inventory with their account’s pricing. The end result is that hundreds of components can be sourced within seconds without the need for sending and receiving spreadsheets.

"The integration with CalcuQuote will help our customers get a real-time response to quote requests from Venkel, which we know will be helpful to many," said Anil Venkatrao, president of Venkel.

Most PCB designers know precisely how Captain James T. Kirk felt because we often feel the same way when starting a new design. We are launching into something that we ultimately don't know how it will turn out. We don't know the difficulties we'll face or problems we’ll need to fix. While we can control the design process and use our skills to make reasonable decisions, there are often huge hazards awaiting us in the "unknown." One worsening problem for all designers is component procurement.
