Integrated WEdirekt configurator

WEdirekt configurator built into a new online quotation tool for mounting PCBs

With immediate effect, the Pforzheim-based mounting service provider M. Richter is rolling out an online price calculation feature for its mounting operation. At the core of the quotation tool is a move to integrate the PCB configurator from WEdirekt, the Würth Elektronik online shop.

“In electronics, as elsewhere, people need key information such as prices, quantities or delivery times immediately – and if possible, also accessible online”, explains Volkmar Stichweh, Managing Director of M. Richter.

M. Richter has addressed this trend by recently offering its customers an online calculation function for mounted assemblies. “WEdirekt and M. Richter are a perfect match – since both companies let customers calculate details and order, even for single items”, says Carina Harnisch, Head of WEdirekt.

To ensure customers get price information promptly, the PCB configurator from WEdirekt was integrated into the online calculation facility at M. Richter.

Once the calculation is complete and an order has been placed with M. Richter, customers benefit from the tried and tested PCB quality of Würth Elektronik as well as the exceptional mounting service offered by M. Richter.

“We are delighted with this first benchmark project, which is linked to the new integration of our web shop into the online calculation for an EMS,” stresses Carina Harnisch, “and we see more projects on the way, since building our calculator into an online quotation tool makes things faster, more convenient and more transparent.”
