The electronic manufacturing industry has faced many challenges and changes over the past decade, especially in regards to the time-consuming process of procurement and inventory management. Processes that once took hours have been altered and streamlined to mere seconds.
Automation solutions have transformed electronic manufacturing services by improving the transfer, intake, and response time to massive amounts of data.
Supply chain professionals in the electronics industry face serious challenges associated with transferring enormous amounts of information to and from different systems, with incompatible formats. Electronic components supply chain professionals receive thousands of RFQs and POs that must be sorted and processed, but manual processes are time-consuming and prone to error.
The Orbweaver Platform streamlines the procurement cycle for electronics by automating key processes throughout the supply chain.
Orbweaver Connect is a translation engine that makes it possible to integrate data from various systems to make electronic data interchange possible, without the expense of an EDI system. Connect can take data in any format, including spreadsheets, and normalize it to a usable configuration without the need for manual translation or data entry.
Once data is translated
