Procurement Solutions with eComp – Navigating the Obsolete and Legacy Supply Chain
Let’s face it: diminishing manufacturing sources and material shortages is an expensive, labor intensive, complex enterprise and you need a partner that can offer more than one procurement resolution. Often it can be difficult to identify a diminishing product with enough time to implement a solution that protects your life-cycle support and viability. For over 16 years, eComp has taken a leadership role as an Independent Distributor and Procurement Solutions Specialist. We are dedicated to helping our customers identify the best methodology for procuring goods and services, obsolete or otherwise. By taking a proactive stance and evaluating more than one approach, eComp can help you determine the best methodology for procurement.

Our clearly defined terms and conditions, as well as our commitment to quality, ensures that our suppliers are among the best in the industry. Our commitment to quality has led us to pursue multiple certifications and affiliations, some of which are listed below:

eComp can also evaluate your bill of materials and help you determine your sourcing options while adhering to your specific project specifications. We can provide feedback on the longevity of the devices or products listed and provide additional guidance in how to approach sourcing items that are end of life, or recently discontinued. eComp also can evaluate your BOM to return information such as conflict minerals analysis, RoHS compliance, and substance analysis. By utilizing our expertise, you can ensure that you are able to make an informed decision regarding your procurement needs and reduce costs with strategic sourcing initiatives.
