Q: In the field of electronic component
supply, what is a Franchised Distributor?
a: A Franchised Distributor is licensed by an electronic
component Manufacturer to be an exclusive supplier of their
products. Unlike DF Consulting, an independent
electronics distributor who can literally search the world
for parts, the Franchised Distributor is allowed to source
only their own inventory and the factory for that Manufacturers' products.
If they are out of stock, then both the Franchised Distributor
and the client are stuck waiting for the next supply delivery
or allocation releases, many times too late to meet the clients
Q: What is
the role of an Independent Distributor?
a: Frequently the electronic components
that clients seek have been discontinued, allocated, made
subject to long lead times, or are unavailable. As an Independent
Distributor, DF Consulting strives to supply
such hard-to-find and in-demand products by foreseeing
the need, purchasing and stocking the products, and being
able to supply them to our clients when needed. DF Consulting
will also search its global contact database to find the
elsewhere if the client's requested items are not in stock.
Q: Why would you want to
choose DF Consulting over a Franchised Distributor?
a: Sometimes timing can be everything,
even more so when you are up against a deadline. You can
depend on DF Consulting to come through for you
in satisfying all of your electronic component needs. We
offer many Value-Added Services,
and with our goal to keep our product sourcing speed impressive,
our prices competitive, and our personal services incomparable,
why go anywhere else?
Q: How large of an order does DF Consulting require?
a: At DF Consulting your order
is important to us. As a trusted independent electronic
component distributor, we understand that meeting all of
your product needs, large or small, is what helps build
a great client/distributor relationship. At DF Consulting
that's what we strive for. Generally our minimum requirement
is $300 per component.
Q: Are you obligated to make a purchase once you've sent
DF Consulting a Buy Request?
Q: What is it that makes DF Consulting your
Although our goal is to satisfy
all of our client's (and prospective client's) electronic
needs, sometimes not all Buy Requests can
be met. At DF Consulting, our goal is that the
next time you send us a Buy Request, that we will be able
to satisfy it.
At DF Consulting, we
believe in treating Clients and their Requests on an individual
basis. Whether a Client needs their order assembled and
delivered tomorrow, or just in time to
meet their deadline, our electronic component distributor
process delivers just the way the Client wants it. Personally
satisfying a Client's electronic components need is always
DF Consulting' top priority.
