In addition to measuring the reputation of franchised electronics distributors, UBM's 2016 Global Distributor Customer Evaluation Study gathered the thoughts of industry leaders about how they are using online resources to collect design information, identify suppliers, and more.
The study, which was released to a select audience at the recent EDS tradeshow in Las Vegas last week, show what you might expect: that online sources are becoming a critical component to the way that supply chain professionals, engineers, designers and corporate management at electronics OEMs find the data they need.
The study, which was conducted online between March 1 and April 12 of this year, polled a record-breaking 3,268 electronics industry professionals. We heard from people worldwide, including Europe, Asia, and the United States.
Yesterday, we took a close look at what customers think about their distributors. Now, we'll share what these electronics industry professionals say about the online resources they like best.
