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.
