CalcuQuote Moves to Better Connect PCB Manufacturing with PCB Assembly

Reading time ( words)

CalcuQuote was started with the mission of creating a fast, accurate and efficient quoting process for the Electronics Manufacturing Services (EMS) industry. The primary problem to solve for a long time was sourcing components on the Bill of Material (BOM). Thanks to the work of industry leaders, it is now easier than ever to quickly source the components on your BOM. API-based transactions, adopted by the industry’s largest suppliers, have enabled near-instant response for BOMs with hundreds of part numbers.

As part of its drive of continuing to strive for a higher standard of excellence, CalcuQuote is now working on the next evolution of supply chain connectedness: working with “make to order” suppliers such as Printed Circuit Board (PCB) manufacturers.

With hundreds of EMS companies across the globe using the CQ ecosystem process tens of thousands of quotes each month, CalcuQuote is in a unique position to help connect the PCB manufacturers with EMS companies.

As the first step in this journey, CalcuQuote is building a global directory of PCB manufacturers that will be searchable within the CQ ecosystem so you can easily collaborate with your preferred PCB suppliers or discover new partners for a more resilient supply chain.

PCB manufacturers can participate in this directory for free, forever, with the added benefits of showcasing their capabilities, discovering new opportunities, and more easily collaborating with their customers.

“We see this as a win-win scenario for the electronics industry,” says Chintan Sutaria, CEO of CalcuQuote. “The whole industry is expected to be faster, more resilient, and more efficient. The only way to meet all of those criteria is to reduce the friction of doing business through innovation.”
