Case Studies

Beyond Last Time Buys

The many benefits of our solution apply to other common situations OEMs encounter, like:

  • Buffer Stock – The purchasing power of our EOL Last Time Buy Solutions can be leveraged for the acquisition of buffer stock, enabling OEMs to stay ahead of potential shortage-related disruption while locking in today’s cost.
  • Price Inflation - To stay ahead of price inflation, many OEMs opt to lock in today’s cost by making a bulk purchase of critical inventory upfront. This is also helpful for negotiating significant discounts.
  • Long-Term Service Commitments - Our solution offers customers the means to purchase minimum bulk quantities of Field Repair Units and a storage infrastructure capable of fulfilling them as needed.
  • Contract Manufacturers' Holding Costs - When CMs carry multiple years of inventory for their OEM customers, they charge on average 15% per annum. With Partstat’s EOL Last Time Buy program, OEMs have the ability to cut this cost in half.
  • ASICs - Our solution provides manufacturers with the purchasing power to bank raw die and wafer for future builds. Partstat will also store this sensitive material in our desiccant dry cabinets that are housed inside our semiconductor vault.
