PC Components Company Introduces Component Manufacturer Short-Name Cross Reference

Seaside Park, NJ – August 17, 2009 – PC Components is pleased to announce the launch of its latest resource, the Component Manufacturer Short-Name Cross Reference.  This tool was designed in-house by PC Components in an effort to standardize manufacturer short names within the PC Components Database.  After developing the tool PC Components realized that each distributor used its own manufacturer short name but no standard existed that everyone could use.  The result of not having a standard makes it difficult to search and compare parts to purchase the manufacture you need.

It was at this point that PC Components decided to release the Component Manufacturer Short-Name Cross Reference on the PC Components website and make it available to everyone free of charge. There is now a public standard that the industry can use to convert manufacturer full names into short names.

“It is my hope that the independent distribution industry will adopt this cross reference and begin using it as a means of standardization.” Says Joseph P. Calabria Sr., Director of Administration for PC Components.

PC Components has been at the forefront of innovation within the industry and has made many of its tools and research available to the general public in an effort to advance independent distribution.
