Component Sourcing Support
Combatting component availability and long lead times is at the top of all of our client’s list of priorities today. Our experienced Supply Chain Team has forged long relationships with major distribution partners, qualified brokers, and component manufacturers to find and bond parts that our clients need. We use the latest in artificial BOM intelligence tools to get ahead of component problems early in the design cycle, and help our clients identify potential component alternates and solutions. We follow these guidelines when working with our clients on alternate components:
- Vergent will identify and present alternates to our clients
- Client has final authority to approve any alternate as suitable in their design
- Vergent will only implement an alternate with written client approval
Advanced Component Stocking
Securing component stock and bringing into physical inventory is a necessary step to ensure near to mid term supply in today’s market. We have learned it’s nearly impossible to predict which components on a BOM will become long lead time without notice.

This has quickly become a very popular offering with our clients.
