Held at the Ocean Reef Club in Key Largo, FL on January 24, 2017, this was KEMET’s second annual Americas Distribution Conference. Approximately 80 distributors, partners, and employees gathered as Tony Powell, Orbweaver CTO, co-presented with Fernando Spada, KEMET VP of Sales – Global Distribution, to introduce Jet Stream – a system designed to revolutionize the RFQ process for KEMET and its distribution partners.
Jet Stream uses the Orbweaver Connect™ platform and a custom installation of Orbweaver Advance™ to process the RFQ faster and with more accuracy. Jet Stream takes the manual, time-consuming process of managing RFQs from both KEMET and distribution partners and automates it.
During the presentation, Tony Powell and Fernando Spada demonstrated the capabilities of Jet Stream such as flexible and automated data intake, intelligent alerts and notifications, and versatile communication options with other systems (EDI, API, Web Portal, Spreadsheets, etc.).
These capabilities produce benefits for both KEMET and its distribution partners. Additional, benefits include improved quote coverage, centralized RFQ storage/versioning, enhanced business workflow, IntelliData integration, rapid response times, and real-time quote process tracking.
Jet Stream is slated for Beta testing with distribution partners in early summer of 2017. A full deployment of Jet Stream is scheduled for January 2018.
