Farnell’s latest survey encourages procurement professionals to have their say

Farnell is calling for its global customers to help benchmark and improve its future services delivered to them by participating in its first ever Buyers’ Survey.

The survey, which closes at the beginning of July, is designed to help the industry fully understand what matters most to buyers and identify trends that influence purchasing decisions across the engineering and electronics industry.

This year’s questions were carefully designed to provide a greater insight into new and evolving technologies, challenges electronic component buyers face, and the opportunities that are available. There have been a number of issues related to the supply chain in recent years, but the prevailing assumption is that those have now largely been overcome. The survey intends to find out how respondent’s experiences have been impacted by such market challenges, uncover what is now driving selection processes and understanding the factors which influence vendor selection.

The survey will remain live and accessible until 2nd July and is comprised of easy-to-complete, largely multiple-choice questions about the buyers’ business, product preferences and purchasing habits.

As an incentive, participants in the survey will have the option to answer a question based on their knowledge, experience, and insight. Three lucky winners will be selected based on their answers to win prizes including Bose wireless headphones, a FITBIT Inspire 3 smart watch or an Amazon gift card.

Pingali added, ”We have received many valuable responses from around the world and we want to ensure that we receive as many more as possible before the survey closes. The survey takes less than 10 minutes to complete, but the value of the information can be effective for years. I encourage everyone involved in the component selection process to take a moment to ensure their voice is heard.”

Those wishing to participate can do so at https://uk.farnell.com/buyer-survey-2024 until 2nd July.
