You have a stockpile of LCD displays you cannot use.
You cannot get the LCD displays you need to build and ship products. You are losing business.
You received an order of LCD displays, but for some reason none of them work. You are losing business while you get the problem resolved.
When you need to add a touch screen to your product and your company sells less than 2,000 units in a year, sourcing your own LCD displays will cause you, your purchasing department, and your sales team pain. You have an alternative. Work with a vendor that aggregates LCD demand for low-volume customers and get:
Displays when you need them.
Substitute displays with the same mechanical mounting to avoid packaging redesign when your display becomes obsolete.
Our development kits generally ship in 1-2 days after we receive the order.
We keep standard products on the shelf for prototyping and small-volume initial production.
We aggregate demand of many customers; as such, we stock commonly used LCD panels and therefore have significantly shorter panel lead times than standard distributors.
Our standard products are in constant production - we have hundreds of customers using the same product. This allows us to keep stock on hand for upside production requirements.
