Avnet Time's new e-commerce site provides full online customer access to more than 100,000 products

Specialist electronic component distributor Avnet Time today announced the launch of its new online channel, which can be found at . This site provides customers with instant online access to price, availability and delivery information on Avnet Time's range of more than 100,000 interconnect, passive, electromechanical and power (IPEP) products from more than 30 leading manufacturers.

"Our online store is designed to save our customers time," said Darren Poulton, director of e-commerce and marketing communications at Avnet Time. "The idea was to turn an ambitious business requirement from our customers into reality in a very short time. Its development is very much driven by our customers and provides them with quick and easy access to the information they need, as well as an alternative way of ordering electronic components."

IPEP specialist Avnet Time created the new website as part of its strategy to provide the industry with new, value-added services. Its customers can now access information on its extensive range of components, and buy online at any time and from any location. It has multi-language capability, and orders can be placed in currencies to suit the country of purchase.

The development of the online store focuses on providing customers with a more efficient way of doing business, through a system that is simple and intuitive to use. Once a customer is registered, components can be quickly located through a comprehensive search facility. When components are selected, details of stock levels, lead times and prices are provided. It is possible to build a shopping basket and place an order using just four screens.

Poulton said: "Our buy-online shop enables us to offer services that are significantly ahead of our competition. It provides our customers with a fast, comprehensive and more efficient service, which makes it easier for companies to do business with us. This is all part of Avnet Time's strategy to ensure that we maintain our position as the leading distribution specialist of IPEP products in Europe."
