Smith’s market-intelligence insights help our global partners strategize in a continually changing market.
Procurement support is vital, especially during unprecedented supply chain conditions like the ongoing shortage situations we see in industry segments like automotive and the aftermath of the overarching, global shortage of the last few years that many industries are only now beginning to emerge from. Truly dynamic support, though, goes beyond simple procurement.
Smith offers comprehensive partnership underpinned by our flexible, customizable service programs, which can hone in on your organization’s specific inventory and supply chain needs to address and solve your unique challenges.
Smith’s market-intelligence insights not only empower our dynamic procurement and sourcing programs – we also extend this knowledge and support to our global partners to help inform and guide their business strategies in the continually changing global electronics supply chain.
Smith’s Manager of Market Intelligence, Todd Banker, explains how in the following video:
