Mouser Electronics’ comprehensive bill of materials (BoM) management tool Forte, designed to increase confidence, save time and improve order accuracy in selecting and purchasing electronic components, has helped its customers process more than 11 million orders.
The tool, free to anyone with a My Mouser account, evaluates the daily searches and orders of purchasing professionals and engineers. It features a risk evaluator based on a unique relevancy engine that analyses partial part numbers and descriptions to suggest the best options for customers, an industry-leading feature. It then quickly validates part numbers, product availability and price, and recommends alternative products to reduce design and product lifecycle risks.
It was developed to be what purchasing professionals really need in a BoM tool, and Mouser is constantly improving it and its other tools to help users manage their selections and purchases. With Forte, customers receive relevant information even when they search for outdated or partial part numbers. The new tool can match a higher percentage of parts and help users understand the confidence and risk of each part.
Forte offers expanded customisation that makes the BoM-building process faster and easier to use and share. It remembers users’ preferences, spreadsheet layouts, naming conventions and previous product orders. It also offers legacy features like translations for all of Mouser’s supported languages, support for the most common file formats, real-time product pricing and availability, and easy purchasing directly from the BoM.
