Anglia has introduced significant enhancements to its popular PartTracker Web
service, which now automatically notifies users of any changes to parts they have
already purchased, or of any termination in the supply of particular parts.
When a user logs into the site, a list is displayed that shows all Product Change Notifications (PCNs) and Product Termination Notifications (PTNs) relating to part numbers they have purchased from Anglia.
PartTracker was first launched just over a year ago, with the aim of providing a
Web-based information resource that kept users up to date with the RoHS
compliance status of parts on their bills of materials. The same framework is
now being used to keep customers informed of all the relevant changes to
specification or availability of the components they purchase.
Said David Pearson, Anglia’s technical marketing manager, “PartTracker gives
our customers immediate access to all the relevant data about the components
they are interested in, including any changes to their mechanical or electrical
specification and whether they are scheduled to be discontinued. This gives the
engineer or purchaser an unprecedented level of control over decisions on
sourcing components for their products. No other component supplier offers as
comprehensive a source of information as that available from PartTracker.”
