The global electronics market has been growing for many years and will continue to offer solid growth rates in the future. How can EMS and OEM companies differentiate themselves from their competitors? The Bay-Soft team provides the answer with its Bay-2 Quote pricing software and the integrated best-price engine, which makes it possible to quickly determine the best prices for hundreds of components from various distributors online and worldwide. EMS and OEM companies with the best prices and pricing information (price scales, availability, technical features, etc.) have the best chance of being at the forefront of the electronics market.
