The ‘Component Locator search facility has been designed to enhance the customer experience by providing access to Vigilant’s extensive database at their own convenience, 24/7. The process works by the customer inputting either a full or partial part number of a known component, the system will then search through its extensive database and report back in real time, providing the customer with instant access to specific data such as quantity of units available and descriptions. The system then allows customers to input how many parts are required and other relevant information. This in turn raises an RFQ which is automatically emailed to members of the Vigilant team who will respond back with formal quotations and delivery times.
The service also enables customers to select from Vigilants’ wide range of industry-leading services for component inspection, verification and counterfeit detection.
Graham Smith, Managing Director of Paragon’s Component Division comments; “We are delighted to be able to offer this additional service to our customers. Sourcing hard-to-find
components can be a very tricky business made all the more difficult these days by the threat of counterfeits, however thanks to Paragon’s twenty plus years of
supply chain experience we have developed an extensive database of supply partners around the world and we are pleased to now offer our customers access to this additional on-line information. But procurement is only part of the Vigilant service, we also offer exhaustive test, verification and counterfeit detection services to any organisation wishing to check the provenance of components that they may have procured themselves.”
