Protect your brand from counterfeit products and gray market activity
According to the Semiconductor Industry Association, counterfeiting is costing US-based semiconductor companies more than $7.5 billion each year. When end users see differing price points for the same brand in the market it causes confusion and may negatively affect a brand value. And if a gray market product is not supported by companies, then end users may be financially and operationally affected, thus lowering end-user satisfaction with the brand and potentially tarnishing a company's reputation.

Components Direct's platform provides suppliers with unmatched visibility and control of the secondary market. Armed with detailed secondary market data by region, date code and vendor, suppliers can trace the product leakage of their product into the secondary market and take action to protect their brand.

Prevent margin erosion by proactively monitoring and controlling gray market activity
Analytics and flexible reporting solutions give manufacturers the data and insight needed to make key decisions. Secondary market analytics convey key market data and demand signals on product availability in the secondary market. Web analytics provide customer specific behavior and conversion activity. And a robust 24/7 POS web portal provides real-time information on customers, quantity and prices of products sold.

Recover revenue consumed by brokers
At Components Direct, our goal is to enable you to take excess back into the control of an authorized source instead of the gray market. We believe a successful partnership is based on tightly aligned objectives and jointly realized success. We are committed to delivering measureable results for our clients. And our unique pay-for-performance model means you only pay when we deliver results. Because if you aren't achieving higher levels of performance and revenue in your business, neither are we.
