CalcuQuote Launches BidCQ


Reading time ( words)

CalcuQuote has announced a new Bid Sheet Portal, allowing electronics contract manufacturers to send, and component distributors to receive Bill of Material (BOM) bid sheets in a single, easy-to-use interface. The new platform, called BidCQ, gives distributors bid sheets detailing part manufacturers, manufacturer's part number, and a product description, as well as access to line-item attachments. Distributors can respond to customer requests for quote (RFQ) with their on-hand inventory or lead time, price information across quoted quantities, minimum quantity buys, quantity multiples, suggested alternate parts, and other information.

"We're excited to release another product facilitating fast, accurate communication between component distributors and their manufacturing customers," said Chintan Sutaria, President of CalcuQuote. "Our newest solution will dramatically improve how suppliers interact with contract manufacturers (CM)."

BidCQ works seamlessly with the existing CalcuQuote RFQ Management System for electronics manufacturing services (EMS) companies. The RFQ Management System helps companies estimate material, labor and overhead costs of a printed circuit board assembly (PCBA). After charging for NREs and applying markup, CalcuQuote publishes a beautiful, PDF-format quote that CMs can deliver to their customer.

Driving Down Cost in the Supply Chain

04/08/2021 | Meghan Zou, EPOCH
Driving cost out of the supply chain goes beyond reduction of raw material cost. Though many of the manufacturers today concentrate on negotiation with their raw material supplier(s) the hidden cost of internal supply chain goes undetected. To address the cost of the entire supply chain we should not only look at direct material cost but also the cost of internal supply chain. At Epoch we looked at four areas in particular which include: planning/tracking, storage/delivery, inventory management, and supplier relationships.

5 Keys to Smart Process Success

01/28/2021 | Steve Williams, The Right Approach Consulting LLC
Smart factories require the core underlying processes to be connected and “talking” to generate the data necessary to make real-time process decisions, that is, the IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things). In a truly connected factory, an ongoing continuous dialog between machines, business processes, suppliers and customers is happening in the background. This dialog is not only interactive, but proactive, as a constant stream of real-time data is tweaking and adjusting processes to drive improvement. It also provides time-critical information on how processes are operating, supply chain pipeline, and delivery status updates—all based on data.
