Fairchild Semiconductor and Arrow Electronics have reduced the amount of time involved with their order management and quoting process by at least 50 percent through the implementation of RosettaNet standards.

RosettaNet, through real-time, system-to-system communications, automates the exchange of information between Fairchild, the supplier and Arrow, the distributor. As a result, both companies are expected to benefit with a more efficient and accurate supply chain, improved productivity and a faster response time for mutual electronic components customers.

Paul Katz, Arrow's VP global supply chain, said, "The joint deployment with Fairchild enables us to receive and respond to pricing opportunities and customer order requirements in real-time, providing our customers with the information they need quickly and efficiently."

"By delivering RosettaNet-based quoting with Arrow, we have strengthened our relationship, improved the flow of information, reduced the risk of error and saved Arrow valuable time to spend with customers," said Mark Norman, Fairchild's VP, worldwide distribution. "We also believe RosettaNet-based quoting demonstrates our commitment to superior customer service by offering services that make it easy to do business with Fairchild," Norman added.
